Student Council Minutes: March 7

– Self-nominations for the 2021-22 Student Council elections are open from March 8-22.

– The Diversity and Inclusion Committee is soliciting student participation for a series of informational sessions on accessibility to academic, housing and employment resources.

–  Student Council’s executive council met with affinity groups for a dialogue moderated by administrators about frustrations in the Business and Finance Committee funding process. The executive council is in the process of scheduling individual follow-up meetings about the process with affinity groups and other student organizations.

– Merit List discussion continued. Meetings with Dean Hawks, the Registrar and the Career Development Office will occur to determine the feasibility and significance of indicating Merit List qualification on students’ transcripts. The Merit List will remain private for this semester if it can be put on the transcript, and a private notification will be sent shortly thereafter to fall 2020 recipients.
