Thursday, March 4
Yesterday's Student Senate meeting agenda included discussing the Caravan issue (details about the issue here). They are currently protected by the mass comm department, however the university is trying to push it to become under the supervision of the student governance (to ensure that it is abiding by the free press laws and the university's Code of Ethics). In my opinion it makes perfect sense, since according to AUC constitution, all publications should fall under the monitoring of the SJB (Student Judicial Board) and the Student Senate. The Caravan issue was referred to the AUC Press Board to investigate further and come back on the next Senate agenda. Later on in the same meeting, I was elected (16 out of 25 votes) as the Press Board Chairperson. More work for me yay.
