SGA President Colleen Osborne ’13 announced at Joint Board that the Committee on Admission and Financial Aid was preparing three solutions for Grinnell’s budget shortfall. Once presented, Osborne recommended that SGA endorse one of the three proposals to ensure that student opinion is heard in the discussion.
“We don’t have to endorse one, but we should endorse one of them,” Osborne said. “Our voice will be more important that way.”
Osborne will also be working with President Raynard Kington’s new task force on sexual assault and alcohol policies. Right now, she is the only student member of the task force, but she will be working to involve more students.
