Our Constitution

Please follow this link to the GET-UP Constitution that was ratified on May 14th, 2016. Before reading, please note:

  1. Elections for positions on the coordinating committee were not held in the fall of 2016 as stated. Due to the rate of growth of GET-UP and the need to incorporate as many new members as possible, the coordinating committee decided in August, 2016 that it would be best to continue to meet on an ad-hoc basis for the remainder of the academic year.
  2. Elections for positions on the grievance committee are also yet to be held. GET-UP hopes to hold these elections in the near future.
  3. In February, 2016, the GET-UP General Body authorized the formation of a ‘Constitutional Reform’ working group to evaluate the effectiveness of the constitution and propose reforms. It will report its findings at a future general body meeting. Please email penngetup@gmail.com if you’d like to help!
