Student Trustee Elected - Trustee Meeting Update

May 7, 2013

Dear Students, 

As some of you know, at the end of last week, the Board of Trustees was on campus for its annual May meeting. Among many topics presented, members from our Student Divestment Committee (SDC) gave the Investment Committee a presentation on the reasons the college should divest from fossil fuels. The Investment Committee is considering their proposal and will be sending a response to the members of the SDC in the coming weeks.

Additionally, junior Joel Begay, the 2013-14 student trustee, was officially elected. On behalf of the board, we are excited about Joel's leadership and look forward to his many contributions. We also would like to thank Samantha Barlow, the 2012-13 student trustee, for her insight and guidance during our inaugural year of having a student trustee. Samantha's vibrant personality and inquisitive thinking aided the board in many complex situations. 

If there are any questions, please let me know.
