Off-Campus Housing Advocacy Stance: 

The Advocacy Positions Committee has been drafting a central WUSA stance about student concerns around off-campus housing for the last few months. This was identified as a priority in WUSA’s Annual Plan.

Board Member Accountability: 

The Directors on Board found that the measure of attaching a report-submission condition to Board member honorariums was appropriate in October and decided to extend this condition to November. They also tasked the Governance Committee to solidify this procedure, so it no longer needs to be a month-to-month decision. The Board recognizes that students want to know what Board members are doing in their roles in service of students and this reporting requirement ensures they make their activities known.
