SBP Savannah Putnam's 'Catch-22': Power dynamics in the BOT

When the Board of Trustees huddled in closed session earlier this month, awaiting instruction on how to proceed on the delicate Confederate monument issue, Savannah Putnam met with them.  As the SBP, her job is to act as a liaison between the students and administration. Yet despite her status as a voting ex-officio member of the BOT, she was asked to leave a conversation which took place before the official special meeting dates of both the BOT and BOG.

Column: Make the Undergraduate Senate more diverse

All our student leaders have a responsibility to do what is right, regardless of how “contentious” it may seem. Students have been subject to this type of complacency for long enough with our University administration and should not undergo it with their student leadership as well. I hope that the trend of vetoing progress for the sake of pleasantness does not continue.
