STUSU takes moderate position regarding provincial budget cuts
STUSU executives attended a conference on the global future of post-secondary education last weekend. John Hoben said he sat next to the minister of post-secondary education at dinner one evening. He said they had a productive discussion over the meal. The provincial deficit was reported to have doubled the day before the dinner. Hoben said he and Alex Driscoll will be working hard to “not just say ‘please don’t cut us,’ say ‘if you have to do it this is the way it should be done.’”
STUSU communications co-ordinator Meryn Steeves will be in Sweden on an exchange next semester. Her job will be offered to current employees first and then opened up to the student body on Nov. 19.
$250 donated to Christmas Stars
Henri Thibeau motioned for STUSU to donate $150 from the Charitable Assistance line in the budget to the Christmas Stars program. Christmas Stars is a program run through the university which helps parents of young children get gifts. Luke Robertson recommended the amount be increased. Alex Carleton inquired about the amount left in the budget line. Fin Mackay-Boyce said he would support an amount up to $250 for donation. The motion was passed to donate $250 to Christmas Stars.
