The Student Senate convened on Tuesday, November 11th:
  • Senate began with information about the Sexual Assault Campus Conversation. We were reminded that in place of a Senate Meeting, there will be a Wellness Swiped event at 6:30 on Tuesday, November 18th for a Campus Conversation to discuss sexual assault with as many students as possible on campus including at Pause dances.
  • We also heard about the Lion Pause’s stable financial status and some of the new changes that have occurred this year.
  • Senate then heard a summary of the Board of Regents meeting held in October on a variety of college wide issues. Senator Davis highlighted how St. Olaf is among the average of other schools regarding statistics surrounding sexual assault and safety on campus.  Senate also learned that the athletic department’s top requests are to hire a full time athletic director, strength and conditioning coach, and an ice rink.
  • Finally, Senate discussed changes to the bylaws and policy manual regarding the Election procedures that included making the process more transparent and codifying the structure of the Election Commission.
See you next Tuesday in the Pause!
