In response to the recent chain of tragedies that have affected our campus community, the Student Affairs Committee (SAC) of the University Senate has composed an extensive memorandum to the Offices of the President and Provost on mental health, suicide prevention, and student wellness. In support of this memorandum, the Engineering Student Council has written an addendum, which we believe complements the recommendations in the SAC’s memorandum by offering recommendations for improving mental health and for responding to campus tragedy.
Read our addendum here, or over on the Policy Committee page. Also check out a related memorandum written by Sidney Perkins last year on mental health.
In an effort both to increase our own transparency and to demystify the workings of the administration of Columbia, the Policy Committee is excited to announce the publication of our internal projects tracker.
Please note that we have removed the direct links to survey results, but we are working to include links to the ones whose results are public. All reports and resolutions remain linked.
Check out the project tracker here: Policy Committee Project Tracker, or on our Policy Committee webpage.
As always, we welcome any and all suggestions and feedback.
