ESC is having a busy second half of the semester.

The council is working on a survey for SEAS students to gauge how students would feel about and be impacted by undergraduate expansion.

Student Body President Kennedy Salamat (‘23) provided updates on pass/fail policies. The non-technical pass/fail policy has passed for this semester. This policy was announced to students—along with the extension of the deadline to pass/fail a class and the new linguistics major—in the weekly newsletter.

Salamat and VP Policy Angel Mancera (‘23) are writing a P/D/F proposal to present at next week’s COI meeting. They will be advocating for both permanent and emergency policies. Council members will also present the Ethnicity and Race Studies minor proposal at the next COI meeting. 

FGLI Representative Abigail Cawley (‘22) shared a draft of a letter CCSC FLI Representative Jaine Archambeau (CC ‘22) and CCSC’s Financial Accessibility Task Force wrote. The letter details some of the most pressing issues that FGLI students face on campus. These includes concerns related to student contribution as part of the cost of attendance, food insecurity, housing insecurity, textbook affordability, and financial aid transparency. ESC reviewed the letter to provide input and will vote on the letter soon.

Finally, VP Student Life Matthew Wahl (‘23) shared that the SEAS Gala Cruise was a big success. Many attended the event, and the council got positive feedback from students who attended.
