Re: Connect with Student Council
Now that we are over a month into the school year I wanted to reach out to you and share some ways you can connect with Student Council and your elected representatives. It's our job to improve life on Grounds for all students but we can only do so effectively if you give us some guidance. Below are a few ways to do so:
Have you ever wanted to change something at the University? Do you think there's something missing? This is the place to voice your concerns. SpeakUpUVa is an online bulletin board that is monitored daily by StudCo representatives who address your concerns soon after they are posted. It's about giving you a voice in what projects we undertake and what problems we solve. Be sure to check it out and vote on other students' concerns or post your own.
Penny for Your Thoughts Survey
Give us your thoughts! The only way Student Council can formulate relevant initiatives and services is to gather data from you: the students. If you take five minutes to fill out this bi-monthly survey you will help us out immensely.
Check out Student Council's website for updates on the exciting stuff that we have been doing and for blog posts and updates from your committee chairs and representatives. Want to chat and discuss concerns with your representative in person? Check out: www.uvastudentcouncil.com/about/ourrepresentives for a list of office hour locations and times. Also, like our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/uvastudco for extra info.
Have an issue or concern that you would like addressed by the Representative Body? I invite you to come to our General Body Meetings, held every Tuesday at 6 p.m. in the South Meeting Room of Newcomb Hall. Members of the community can share concerns, and CIOs can promote upcoming events. We want to hear from our constituents about what's going on in their world and address those happenings/issues.
Please do not hesitate to contact firstname.lastname@example.org, or me personally, with any questions, comments or concerns. We're here to listen; your voice is our vision.
Student Council President
