Cooper to slash size of her cabinet, combine positions

In an effort to streamline her cabinet, Student Body President-elect Mary Cooper is planning to cut its size dramatically.

Applications for spots on her cabinet are currently being accepted and are due Wednesday at 5 p.m.

The size of the cabinet is currently upward of 50 students, Lily Roberts, Cooper’s pick for senior adviser, wrote in an email Monday.

She added that no one will be “fired,” since the staff completely turns over each year.

To eliminate positions, several committees will be combined. Changes include:

The women’s affairs and minority and diversity outreach committees will be merged.

The public relations team will be moved to the portfolio of the student body secretary.

The student body outreach and student body life committees will be merged into a single student body life committee.

Cooper will be inaugurated today at 5:30 p.m. in the Great Hall of the Student Union.
