Senate aims for more visibility next term

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.
