University President Dr. David King was a guest at Senate’s meeting this week. He informed Senate about a “campus concept” that has been put together and was presented at a recent board meeting. The concept focuses on both a long-term view with future aspirations for campus in the next couple of decades and a short-term view including changes that can be implemented much sooner and will benefit current students.
Freshman senator Chris Dugan is working under female Director of Spiritual Formation Avery Linn’s guidance as a prospect for the male position. It was stressed that Dugan is not yet guaranteed the position but is serving as an intern for the time being.
A letter was written by Junior Vice-President Jordan McKelley concerning the many signs and plaques around campus that still bear the name “Malone College.” McKelley believes this inconsistency could diminish visiting students’ interest in the school and that everything should be switched over to read “Malone University.” The letter was presented to Senate and passed at this week’s meeting.
Senate’s second Open Forum event will take place on Wednesday, November 14th at 7 p.m. The Open Forum will allow students to bring their concerns directly to Senate as a whole and to be informed of what Senate has been up to this year.
