Mission statement: The mission of Conrad Grebel University College’s Student Council is to nurture a relationship-based community through fostering understanding, encouraging growth, and embracing diversity.
This gives us something to hold ourselves to and work towards
“Take this mission and run with it!” - Maddy
Some super-fun acronyms
W.O.O.T. - We Operate Outstandingly Together (last term)
T.W.E.E.T.S. - Together We Enable Each-other Towards Success (this term)
We want to have a very event-based term:
GOAL: 1 event every week
These events are things that EVERYONE is invited to!
Milestone events - sign up your fun events on this spreadsheet!
There are SO MANY SUPPLIES in the StuCo closet, you should use them :)
Budget is available for all - talk to Jeremy
NEW THIS TERM: $25 to food rep and webmasters!
Emails + EOT reports
Your google account has a shared google calendar - USE IT!
Use this link to sign-up for a 1:1 with Maddy!
Advice for the role:
This is your role, you are here for a reason
People remember events and remember fun times, so have fun with it
Leadership is something to be aware of, you are in a position of leadership so you need to respect the rules, keep your doors open, follow the guidelines
You represent more than just yourself, you are representing the institution
You is kind, you is smart, you is important.
Pre-meeting at 9:30 to approve budget
Frost Week: Maddy only spent $24 + a little more of $400
What to do with this extra moneys?
Proposal to add a $25 budget to Webmaster and Food Rep
Hannah & Angela had positive experience doing this in Spring, encourages these LLT to do more events
Banquet went down because they used less
Athletics increase because more intramural sign-ups!!
Nick offers “shake down services” for any future fee wrangling
StuCo likes to take Sunday because it’s easy to do and
Student Initiatives vs Clubs
Removed club budget, wrapped it into Student Initiatives
It’s easy to request funding, people used initiative funding with no problems last term
We haven’t officially decided anything on printing vs not printing yearbooks
Suggestion to not purchase newspaper subscriptions
Something to look into for next year
Please do events, spread the word! (Signup link above)
What does Grebel StuCo have to do with the musical? StuCo funds it.
Musical borrows money from Grebel to rent the theater, get the rights to the show, rent tech, etc etc etc. After tickets are sold, revenue is given back to Grebel.
The musical doesn’t decide where the money gets spent on, but they do get to make suggestions on what it can go towards. (Example: swing set!)
QUAQ became an LLT position last winter, we opened it up as usual
Last winter we got Keren and Josh for all 8 months, but Josh recently mentioned to Maddy that Keren has decided to step down for the role
We are reopening the second position to the community so anyone can apply for the role
Applications open tomorrow, due Tuesday, we’ll decide next Wednesday
LLT meeting schedule
Jan 16 (today!)
StuCo has been doing open kitchen, if we’re still cool to do that it would be cool
Then we can use the money to get StuCo sweaters
Stuco Snack Schedule
$10 for exec
$20 for LLT+exec
“The constitution’s a mess. We can do better.”
Suggested improvement: Merge Spring + Fall/Winter constitutions
Carryover of budget
Carryover of experience
Saves many headaches
Brandon and Maddy have been working on it since the summer
We want to put together a small committee of people to discuss what’s left to change
We need quorum in order to pass this, put it up for referendum, etc.
Need to take special care for people who are away on co-op but will be back for Spring
We want it to be open to members of the community to participate in updates
Maybe formally submitting suggestions
Committee to be formed of:
Maddy, Peter, Hannah, Jackson, Brandon (student voice and past Spring term president/consultant/puppeteer/in-house-expert)
SLEF funding can be used to improve student life
We have used it for tvs, couches, fresh paint, mini morgue, etc etc.
Can be used for…
The improvement of accessibility on campus
The improvement of safety on campus
The improvement of existing lounge and study space
The renovations of student services
Potential idea: Games Lounge Revamp
Other ideas: open it to the student body
