After a very long holiday break, the SRC resumed their weekly meetings at the end of January, as the new term commenced. Here is what you missed:
The meeting was held to discuss the ASU’s upcoming general election. Danish, who leads the elections, announced the proposed election dates and explained his plan to use social media as an engagement tool for student involvement. He asked that members of the council help support the functioning of the election by running different events throughout the electoral process and that each member makes a brief video summarizing their position’s role, so potential candidates have a better understanding. Lydia went on to reinforce the importance of promoting the election, especially through the members of the council. The council discussed the importance of ensuring there are no barriers for students who are not on-campus to participate in the election, especially regarding signatures required to run.
The council subsequently adjourned their meeting and plan on discussing more items regarding the rest of the term next week.
