The Middle Tennessee State University Freshman Council and Student Government held their conjoined meeting on Thursday, with special guests Danielle Rochelle and Tyler Henson.
Rochelle, the Director of Intercultural & Diversity Affairs of MTSU, spoke with the Senate about the resources available to students on campus. Rochelle made her availability known to the senators and said her door is always open.
She also spoke about diversity and cultural acceptance on campus. She said, “If you’re going to have a diverse student body, then you also need to be able to afford people the opportunities to be diverse.”
MTSU Registrar Tyler Henson also attended and spoke at the meeting. Henson talked about the implications of his job as the record keeper for MTSU and about some possible changes to class scheduling.
Since Freshman Student Council was in attendance for the meeting, a strong focus was put on the work they have done for students. The council held a town hall recently that allowed constituents to voice major concerns on campus like housing, safety, health, and transparency.
Committee reports were brief. Internal Affairs introduced Bill 3-23-S, which would alter Parliamentary procedure to include more paperwork when bringing future bills to the floor. The logistics of the bill were discussed and the bill was passed by a large margin.
