Hello Hamline undergraduates!
HUSC hopes that everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving Break! We only have roughly two and a half weeks for this semester so make sure you end it on a good note.
Last week’s General Assembly revolved around the recent changes in diversity initiatives. Provost Jensen and Professor Deo came to GA to discuss DISC, and recent changes with programs such as Commitment to Community and NCORE. Students expressed their concerns, applause, and worries with these changes.
Some events are coming up that may interest you. On December 6th (this coming Friday), DISC shall have another open forum conversation with students regarding Hamline’s Diversity Initiatives. This is not a HUSC event but we encourage a wide variety of students to attend. It shall be from 4-5 pm in Anderson 304.
Finally, the Fall Caucus is on December 8th, this Sunday, at 4:30 in the Kay Fredricks Ballroom. We will be talking about fundraising through a panel discussion and Money Revolution will be leading a workshop on managing budgets. Representatives will also be leading a workshop with each of their constituents.
Hello Everyone! HUSC hopes that everyone is enjoying their short week so far, and that you have a fantastic Thanksgiving break.
Wednesday morning Dean Sickbert and President Dolan discussed the diversity GA and the catering issue in the Anderson Center. Dean Sickbert indicated that he is the person responsible for decisions around the catering policy and that all questions and concerns should come to him. We will most likely have a conversation about this topic in an upcoming GA when there is time available.
Also on Wednesday, Vice President Conliffe and President Dolan met with Bob Klas, the Chair of the Board of Trustees, and President Linda Hanson. They learned a bit more about how the Board functions and answered some questions Mr. Klas had about HUSC. We started a conversation about how to move toward more Board-student interaction and decided that the best and most likely path toward this is through having more events that connect students and trustees.
The discussion on Diversity is during GA tomorrow. Provost Jensen and Veena Deo will be joining us for the discussion.
REMINDER:The HUSC Scholarship application is on the website! One sophomore, one junior, and one senior is selected for the scholarship by the Scholarship Committee.
The All-Org meeting is on December 8th in Kay Fedricks at 4:30. We will be discussing fundraising and Money Revolution will be leading a workshop on managing budgets.
Last week, HUSC enjoyed General Assembly on the first floor of Anderson! It was a good experience for us all, and a nice change of pace. GA will be held in Anderson this week as well, so keep an eye on us tomorrow at 11:30!
Sophomore Longi Chen was chosen as the new At Large Representative for the congress. A current student brought the forth idea of granting each undergraduate student a certain amount of funds to go towards printing on campus. A discussion will be held within the Board of Elected Representatives.
