Student senate will continue to strive for more visibility next term, Senate President senior Philip Bennett reported at the weekly senate meeting last Thursday.
He is interested in bringing a “town hall” style discussion to Knox, based on another ACM school’s system, to connect Senate to the student body. Potentially, students would vote online for a topic and would then attend a discussion where everyone is allowed to give input. The goal would be to leave with an action plan in place to handle any problems.
This is part of a wider campaign for openness and engagement that has included such initiatives as the introduction of weekly office hours by Senate Vice-President junior Devin Hanley.
