Weekly Update [Week 8]: Mascot Nomination Over, An Advisor for the Council?

Yet another busy week in Yale-NUS is over! Amidst the flurry of mid-terms, papers, and events, the community has been putting their creative juices to work suggesting various possibilities for mascot selection.

Project Updates

Nominations for possible mascots were carried out over the past week with many nominations coming in and robust discussion happening on the forum page. The next stage of the mascot selection process is the first round of voting, which will be held from 15 Mar (Tue) to 20 Mar (Sun). More details on the voting procedure will be provided soon.

A reminder that Directors of the various portfolios have regular Office Hours at the Saga Dining Hall where they will be available to listen to feedback and concerns pertaining to their respective portfolios. Their Office Hours schedule is as follows:

Summary of Weekly Meeting

In the weekly meeting on Friday (11 Mar), the Council voted to include staff in the mascot voting, and set quorum for ratification of mascot choice at 50% of the student body.

The Council discussed with Dean Bridges and DOS staff members (Andrew McGeehan and Sara Amjad) about the possibility of having an advisor for the Council, and if such a role existed what it would entail. No conclusion was reached, and the President and Vice President will be continuing this conversation with the DOS office.

Regina discussed guidelines for internal procedures, such as feedback and minutes policy.

Director of Academics, Ross, shared about his priorities for the term which include a focus on Science for Society feedback, grading systems, and feedback on CIPE. Deputy Director of Student Life, Aadit, shared about his priorities for the term which include changes in IT policies and institutional policies for persons with disabilities.

The council also decided to issue a statement about the unfortunate and untimely passing of Prof Barney Bate, which can be viewed here: https://www.facebook.com/877586435585423/posts/1153873507956713

Final Thoughts

This week we lost a dear member of our community, Prof Barney Bate. He played an integral role in setting up the Anthropology division in the college, and was known by many for his passion, enthusiasm, and kindness. The Council would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to friends and family of Prof Bate.

We encourage all to reach out for the necessary support from peer counsellors at P.S. We Care, Dean’s Fellows, and Wellness Works during this difficult time.

 

Regards,
Joceline Yong
Director of External Communications
