Planners say the forum -- the first organized by Congress members in recent years -- is designed to keep students aware of and involved with campus issues.
Carey Richter, student affairs committee chairwoman for Congress, said she and Speaker Tony Larson drafted a resolution to form the committee that will plan the event.
The resolution passed in Congress last week.
Richter said the forum will take place sometime before the end of the semester.
She said she envisions the Fall Forum as a chance for Student Congress members to inform the student body of what Congress does.
It will also facilitate open discussion about issues on campus and alert Congress to students' concerns.
The Fall Forum is being planned by a committee of eight students, five of whom are Congress representatives -- including the two co-chairmen, Alak Shah and Margaret Thomas.
Student Body President Jen Daum will name two additional representatives from the executive branch, and Branson Page, president of the Graduate and Professional Student Federation, also will appoint a graduate student representative.
"Hopefully, student attendance will be very high," Richter said.
