The ASWC Senate convened for the last time in 2014 to approve a GlobeMed request, ratify a club, and table a resolution.
With the money allocated from the Travel & Student Development Fund, Haley Case ’17 will be able to attend the GROW institute training conference in Chicago to learn about GlobeMed and develop an internship.
ASWC also recognized stART, Students Teach Art, a club that will provide Walla Walla elementary school students with supplementary arts education and allow Whitman students to develop their pedagogical skills.
Discussion of Act 14.2: Sexual Misconduct Policy comprised the bulk of the meeting. Senators generally support the resolution, which amends the Whitman Sexual Misconduct Policy, but decided to table it to refine its message before hopefully passing it next semester.
The meeting concluded with reflective remarks and goodbyes from some of the senators who will be abroad in Spring 2015 .
