At tonight’s meeting Kelly Wess ’11 was elected as the new UFB at large representative. Kelly is an economics and psychology concentrator with experience with budgeting and finance as the Sales Director of the BDH. Chosen from three qualified candidates, we are sure Kelly will serve the student body well.
Additionally, Mae Cadao ’13 was elected as UCS Secretary. Congratulations to both Kelly and Mae!
UCS reviewed and approved its mid-year report, it will be distributed to the student body via box slipping on Friday. For more information about this week’s meeting, please consult the minutes.
At the first meeting of the semester, UCS elected a new Academic and Administrative Affairs (AAA) Chair to replace the previous chair. I am excited to announce Jenny Bloom ’12 was elected at the new AAA chair.
UCS also approved the categorization of four student groups – congratulations to the Salsa Club, Brown Drawing Club, AIDS Relief International @ Brown, and Brown Inventors.
Please see our minutes for a complete account of the meeting.
At our Nov. 18th general body meeting UCS voted on two resolutions.
The first resolution was on a UFB code change. The proposed code change would open the appeals board hearings and would add a member from BUAC and two members from URC. The code change passed without any objections.
The second resolution was a UCS code change that would allow a simple majority to pass resolutions and statements (including categorizations of student groups) as opposed to the 2/3 currently required. After much debate the resolution failed to pass. Information regarding the debate can be found in the minutes for the Nov. 18th meeting.
In addition to these resolutions UCS discussed the advising report that the AAA committee has created, increasing outdoor seating, and the now closed Fall Poll that had great student participation.
