The new Barnard Bearoness, Caroline Montgomery, attended this week’s SGA meeting just so she could report her findings back to you, Bwog readers. How kind of her.
This week SGA primarily listened to applicants’ presentations for the remaining open positions on the council, but that doesn’t mean Bwog doesn’t have anything to report back on!
The foremost event that SGA would like to bring to the attention of the student body is from Being Barnard. Being Barnard is continuing the initiative to make Barnard a community that prevents sexual assault proactively. This means taking steps to shift the culture of sex and sexual assault on campus and elsewhere. To help make this vision a reality, Being Barnard is bring in educators Kelly Addington and Becca Tieder to lead workshops on rape culture. Kelly and Becca have backgrounds as activists, promoting sex assault awareness, prevention and sexual empowerment. Visit their website to get more information on who they are and what they stand for. The general student session will be on October 2nd at 3:00 PM in Sulzberger Tower South. If you plan to attend, RSVP here. If you have had a previous leadership role as a peer facilitator (RAs, Peer Eds, ect.), you are also invited to attend a lunch discussion with Kelly and Becca beforehand on October 2nd at 12 PM, RSVP here!
SGA wants to continue to hear your thoughts on Barnard’s winter housing policy. Fill out their Google Document with feedback and suggestions if you have them.
