The Student Life Committee’s primary purpose is to help transform ideas and concerns of students into tangible policies that support, facilitate, and enhance student life at Colorado College. We strive to create comprehensive co-chair/student leadership trainings that are mandatory for student leaders of approved groups, to encourage collaboration between student organizations, to increase CCSGA’s role in the student body as a whole, and to make a more cohesive and structured system of updating leadership transitions/reviewing applications for recognized student organizations. We are familiar with the student organizations on campus and update their leadership as their co-chairs shift, adding new leaders to our spreadsheets and making sure their transitions are noted on the website. Additionally, members of the committee undertake their own initiatives that they believe will better serve the needs of the student body. Applications for all currently approved groups to remain active for the upcoming year are submitted during 6th block and we will review all active and inactive student groups at that point.
What do we do?
We are working to create a more efficient club application process, ensuring that CCSGA has a weekly article in the Catalyst, and serving on the Food Advisory Board Committee on behalf of the student body. We host Campus Activities Night as well as leadership training sessions for co-chairs of CCSGA recognized groups. We continue to encourage collaboration between student organizations in event planning and hope all groups take advantage of the resources that CCSGA can offer to groups.
