Forward-looking correspondent Renée Kraiem reports on last night’s SGA meeting.
Last night’s Rep Council meeting began at 8:30 to accommodate the Second Annual Career Dinner, which was so successful that it seems we’re looking at a third one. And, in the spirit of the annual, the majority of the meeting was spent preparing for the next annus. The majority of that time was spent reviewing amendments to the Constitution, available for review here, and to vote upon during Program Filing on eBear.
Also available on eBear during Program Filing will be elections for next year’s Representative Council and Executive Board. Here are the details:
In the spirit of looking toward next year, Rep. for Diversity Stephanie Fernandez would like us to focus on the año nuevo; Hernandez presented her committee’s proposal for a resolution to mandate admissions materials at Barnard in Spanish to accommodate the growing Spanish speaking population in the country and of prospective students. There should not be, she insists, a bias, as this is just a starting point—next year, Pig Latin! Also presenting a resolution was Rep. for Community Policy Deborah Robertson, whose resolution to mandate clearer labeling in dining areas for students with dietary restrictions was approved by the Council.
Let’s take a hint, though, from Michael J. Fox and take a Back to the Future moment, since there’s a lot going on this year—this week, even.
