The President Pro Tempore or "PPT" is a constitutionally recognized officer of the Student Government Association who presides over the chamber in the absence of the normal presiding officer. The phrase "pro tempore" means "for the time being."
Aside from the chamber duties of the President Pro Tempore, they chair the Internal/External Committee which deals with the internal workings of Student Government as well as assisting with public relations, elections, and the approval of new RSOs.
The President Pro Tempore is charged with reviewing and bringing up conflicts within the internal workings of SGA to the Executive and Legislative branches. They are required to perform the duties of a senator and in the event that the Office of the Vice President becomes vacant, they assume the role. In assisting the other officers, the President Pro Tempore handles any Secretary or Treasurer overload.
