Students voted to approve the addition of Multicultural Representative to the Bowdoin Student Government (BSG) by an overwhelming 1,155 to 100. The Multicultural Coalition will now hold an election to select the representative who will serve on the BSG beginning next semester.

BSG unanimously passed a resolution on December 2 supporting the creation of the Multicultural Represenative position. Because the addition of the position required a amendment to the BSG constitution, it had to be put to a vote amongst the entire student body. One-third of the student body needed to vote, and two-third of voters needed to vote in favor in order for it to pass. Both benchmarks were easily reached.

The Multicultural Representative will join BSG representatives from E-Board, Athletics and the McKeen Center.
