USG does work on a number of campus issues through small groups of USG Senate members called Project Teams. Each team consists of 3-4 Senators and U-Councilors who meet weekly to discuss their mission and vision for the university with each other and with Administrators.
Mental Health Resources Team
The Mental Health Task Force will work on establishing a satellite office program in the residential offices or other select locations to be executed in the Fall of 2019. We will also work on the creation of a campaign to disseminate new information regarding the Cognito mental health online training program by piloting the program and collecting feedback in the spring of 2018 and then launching the program for all sophomores in the Fall of 2019. We aim to make it mandatory and connected to the Office of the Registrar. Additionally, we will work with Dr. Calvin Chin, the Director of CPS to bring the Princeton Distress Awareness and Response training program to all of the Eating Clubs and Co-ops by the end of Spring 2018.
Financial Reform Team
The Financial Reform Team (FRT) is tasked with ensuring that student groups are properly funded. As such, the group will be looking at different ways of increasing funding for the Projects Board, will be studying current and past USG budgets, and will begin to tackle the question of student fees. A long-term project, the FRT is committed to strengthening student led institutions.
Transparency Task Force
The Transparency Task Force works to make information about USG progress, policies, and goals more easily accessible to the student body. We work with the USG historian and previous USG officers to collect documents that have been previously omitted from the website, publish materials that update the student body on the role USG is playing in the campus community, and actively communicate between other task forces and committees to establish clear communications about the goals USG is working towards.
Women's Leadership Team
The Women’s Leadership Task Force looks to support and increase female leadership on campus. Through collaboration with the Women’s Center and student groups on campus, the WLTF will develop programming to bring female leaders together, offer mentorship, and help better prepare those currently in leadership positions empower women.
Loan-Free Textbooks Group
The Loan-Free Textbook Task Force aims to bring to the student body a means to purchase expensive textbooks without having to take out loans. In doing so, we plan on connecting with University Financial Aid, and also Labyrinth Books, to see why textbooks cost so much compared to outlets like Amazon, and if there are ways to make renting textbooks cheaper as well. In consulting other groups on campus that work on FLI issues on campus, we hope to also expand the task force's efforts to better support those groups as well.
Menstrual Products Team
The Menstrual Products Team strives to make menstrual products available on Princeton's campus. By continuing the work started by the Menstrual Products Pilot that was held last year in the Frist Campus Center, meeting with relevant administrators, planning a larger upcoming pilot, working with other student groups, and much more, we hope to make menstrual products accessible for all Princeton students in the bathrooms on campus.
Sexual Misconduct and Sexual Health
The Sexual Misconduct and Sexual Health project will be focused on raising awareness on campus and engaging with the student body in order to best determine what issues related to sexual misconduct and sexual health affect Princeton students. The project aims to work on solving and improving the experiences of students both this semester, as well as building the foundation for work by future project teams.
Student Body Ancillary Team
The Ancillary Team is a group of Senate members dedicated to providing additional support to project teams, committees, task forces, and the creation of new projects.
