- The SGA President Brendan Kruh announced that the Central Connecticut Faculty Senate passed a resolution stating First-Year Experience courses—and the courses’ planned diversity designations—fall under the domain of the Faculty Senate Curriculum Committee rather than under Dr. Glynis Fitzgerald in Academic Affairs, possibly giving the SGA the ability to give more input into the development of the courses’ curriculum.
- Vice President Marissa Cusano announced that the Annual “ALS Walk” will not occur this year and that the ALS Committee, which was a joint endeavor between the SGA and the Phi Delta Theta Fraternity to organize the event, has disbanded. Cusano stated this was on account of Phi Delta Theta no longer wanting to pursue the event’s manifestation.
- Dr. Fiona Pearson, co-chair of CCSU’s Committee on the Concerns of Women and advocate of an on-campus drop-in daycare, presented a proposal that included details on the daycare such as its funding, construction, hours of operation, staffing and desired services. These details all still must be finalized.
