The Big Cheese Forum is this Sunday, November 17th at 7pm-8:30pm.
The Big Cheese Forum is when administrators come to answer questions of the undergraduate student body. There are questions/topics that the Representative Council have voted to hear the Cheeses speak to, which are listed below. Once we have gone through these questions, we will move into an open Question & Answer forum where people can ask any questions they may have for our Big Cheeses.
Kim Cassidy, Interim President of Bryn Mawr College
Judy Balthazar, Interim Undergraduate Dean of Bryn Mawr College
Jerry Berenson, Chief Administrative Officer of Bryn Mawr College
Questions that Big Cheeses will be answering:
What is the timeline for the construction of Haffner? How is Perry House being incorporated into Haffner? Depending on how long it takes for Haffner to be completed, are we going to continue to use Overbrook, Mermont, and Haverford as alternative places to house Bryn Mawr students? Have there been any issues regarding housing Bryn Mawr students at these places?
How have the student employment policies changed from last semester to this semester (specifically in regards to work study)? How can we expect these changes to influence students during the next year? Are these new policies going to remain in place or are they temporary?
Is there anything happening with regards to divestment at Bryn Mawr? From when the Board of Trustees were on campus, we have heard discussion about a sustainability coordinator for Bryn Mawr. Is this something that the college is looking to invest in?
Are there ways in which the CEO, CPD, Pensby, or LILAC are planning to collaborate in the future? If so, what can students look forward to? How is LILAC being utilized and what programming is being planned to better connect the CEO and CPD?
What has Access Services been involved with on campus recently? What are the goals and initiatives of Access Services? How is accessibility being incorporated into the new dorm (i.e. do we know any tangible plans for access in the dorm?)
