This week’s digest will try to summarize all the things that the Student Government Association has been working on for the past two weeks. As weeks go by, more and more pressure is felt within the SGA because of the constraint of time and the amount of projects that need to be finalized.
For the past two weeks, the Student Government Association has been working on a comprehensive report regarding Health Services that pinpoints a large number of issues tackled case by case. The report expresses the lack of satisfaction from students and we have made sure to include an extensive list that includes elaborate recommendations.
This Sunday, a meeting was held with Dr. Guennoun where we presented the report. Another meeting has been scheduled this week to discuss the Psychiatry Services as well.
Finally, we will be working on providing the available Health Services resources on the Student Government Association website for better visibility on different processes and guidelines.
Last week, a meeting was held with the Campus Store Assistant to stress on the necessity for good internal communication and coherence between employees and part-timers.
We have also received reports that the product changes have been positive and led to an increased number of visitors to the Campus Store. We also stressed on the importance of having prices displayed properly and of bettering overall logistics.
Finally, we are looking forward to having new product offerings by this week or the following week.
The Academics Committee of the Student Government Association has conducted a meeting last week with Dr. Violetta Cavalli-Sforza to discuss the course evaluations format and frequency. Minor modifications will be made and course evaluations will take place twice a semester as it has been the case in past semesters (excluding Fall 2019).
SGA Senators have worked on a new list that is more convenient regarding SHSS Course Rotations. A meeting with the SHSS dean is to be conducted soon. Any progress regarding this particular case depends significantly on how responsive they are towards our meeting requests.
