Discussion

Approve Minutes from last week

  • #APPROVED


Handbook lunches with M+M

  • M+M = Maddy and Mary BZ

  • Maddy and Mary met this week as they always do and it was lovely and Maddy loved it

  • IDEA WAS THOUGHT OF: Open lunch discussions about the handbook, what they think

  • Peter mentioned it would be helpful for some to not happen at lunches, esp. for people who are on co-op

  • Mary wants it to be an intentional discussion with people who have put thought into it, read the book, had specific ideas

  • People do already come to talk about it, but we want it to be a more open and intentional ask for feedback

Constitution Snack Night discussions

  • Similar to the lunchtime discussion, but at a snack night and about the constitution

  • Different members of the constitution committee would sit at tables and listen to feedback, write it down, and think about it

  • Want it to be a more intimate conversation, probably at the back of the caf

  • Other option: google survey to allow people to provide feedback

    • This way we can prompt more specific feedback

    • Example: 8-month LLT between fall and spring

  • Constitution committee is going to meet in the near future to discuss

Mix It Up Commie Sup

  • You enter the room, get a random table, go to that table!

  • PROS: meet new friends, fun times for all

  • CONS: not everyone likes to sit with people they don’t know, it’s confusing, people don’t all walk in at the same time

  • We need to man both doors

  • Idea: do this for the commie supper that LLT is running

    • Discussion will be prompted, it will be an out-of-the-ordinary supper anyway

    • Will this put people too far outside of their comfort zone

    • We don’t want to cut this discussion short

  • We could also do it when the UW president is here?

    • Mary cautioned against this, because it always starts late because of mix-it-up

  • What about next week?

    • Longer to sit at the dinner with people they don’t know?

    • Could be overwhelming for students

  • We could do March 6

    • THIS IS THE BEST OPTION! :)

    • We will decide HOW to mix-it-up at a later time
