Student Government’s Voice at Notre Dame
A colleague at Purdue just tweeted this question, “How much power do you give student government at your campus?”
I’m not exactly certain where Kimberly Arnold is going with this (maybe she’ll comment?), but since I’m taking part in the student orchestrated “Tech Week” that’s happening in dormitories around campus right now, I thought surely it qualifies as an example. Student government created its own campus technology committee in 2008 in order to have a greater say in the technology and usability of technology at Notre Dame. Check out their list of accomplishments to date!
What has been the Office of Information Technologies reaction? Very positive. The people I talk to are elated. We now have a direct line, so to speak, to our students’ opinions.
