Former Associated Student Government (ASG) Public Relations Commissioner, Emma Snuggs stepped down from her position Oct. 5 accusing board members of racial discrimination.

“The board is hostile and unapproachable,” Snuggs said in her resignation speech. “I’ve suffered overt racism and harassment, hostility and discrimination. This shamefu behavior is being modeled by administrators.”

Snuggs, who is Native American, said her concerns about racism arose after ASG President Leedel Williams appointed a majority of African Americans to theDisciplinary Appeals Committee.

“I should’ve been on the disciplinary board,” Snuggs said. “I am a minority and feel like I’ve just been trampled on by my own board and certain administrators.”

Snuggs said Student Discipline Officer Elaine Ader warned Williams that there was a formal complaint against Snuggs. The complaint was lodged against Snuggs after a verbal altercation she had with Admissions and Records, according to Snuggs.

Snuggs said the complaint is old and has no validity.

“They’re just scrounging for ways to keep me off the committee,” Snuggs said.

The committee composed of five students and seven faculty members. When a student appeals a disciplinary reprimand, the committee holds a hearing. Ader claimed there was no room for bias on the committee, and by violating the code of conduct students create a conflict of interest in the appeals process.

“After a few years of experience, I have a rule: Anyone who has violated the student code of conduct should not be on the panel,” said Ader. “There are 21,000 students without behavior code violations. I’d rather just have five of them.”

Ader said Snuggs is taking the decision personally, when, according to Ader, it is not a personal matter.

“I’ve tried my very hardest to promotes positivity, community and diversity,” Snuggs said.

Reuben Banuelos, vice president of the Indigenous Peoples Club, said, “I fully support Emma. She has always looked out for every group of people,”

Banuelos said he believes everything Snuggs said in her resignation speech about suffering from racial discrimination.

ASG President Williams was responsible for appointing the five students who are currently on the Disciplinary Appeals Committee.

“Ms. Snuggs, nor any student, has ever been the subject of racial prejudice by the ASG under my administration,” said Williams. “Ms. Snuggs was considered as an appointee, but ultimately her appointment was rejected by Discipline Officer, Dr. Elaine Ader.”

ASG Commissioner of Technology Husham Haroun was sitting next to Snuggs during her resignation speech. He said Snuggs had attacked the board over lack of racial diversity in previous meetings.

According to Haroun, the board should be ethnically diverse and reflect the campus population as much as possible.

“For some time, black students were the only ones showing interest [in the Disciplinary Appeals Committee],” said Haroun. “We didn’t plan that or try to work that in.”

ASG elected Olivia Gover as the new PR Commissioner for ASG shortly after Snuggs’ resignation.

“Snuggs was a very good PR,” said Haroun. “She knew how to get the word out. She was good at getting students involved and promoting our cause. She was very dedicated to her job. We now have someone new. It’s going to take a while for ASG to get up to speed. We have very high expectations for Gover.”
