|What a wonderful season: summer! I hope that the start to your summer term has gone well and that even the cadence of summer terms moves swiftly, that you each find the space for reflection and enjoyment of the change of pace. This is also the time when we begin planning for the next academic year. We need to hear from you about how YOU would like to be involved in the Senate and in college-wide work in the coming year. To that end, please be sure to fill out the interest form for committee service in the coming year (see below). Additionally, join if you can on Friday for our Senate meeting when we’ll have a few guests joining in with updates on college-wide work underway.|
