At Wednesday's ASUA Senate meeting, the senate agreed to add a new position to Cade Bernsen's cabinet, by his request.

The chief of staff directly oversees the 14 cabinet members in the president's cabinet, and acts as the "eyes and ears" of the president when he is not in the office, said Associated Students of the University of Arizona President Alistair Chapman. [Read article]
