Students and faculty again voiced their concerns about Columbia’s sexual assault policy at the University Senate Town Hall on Gender-Based Misconduct and Sexual Assault Wednesday afternoon.

Zila Reyes Acosta, CC ’11, Law ’15, and Will Zvara, Business ’15, will lead the University Senate’s Student Affairs Committee next year as co-chairs.
At Friday's plenary, the University Senate passed resolutions that would make membership of the Presidential Advisory Committee on Sexual Assault public and codify the quality of life survey as a biennial endeavour. Representatives from the Advisory Committee on Socially Responsible Investing also presented a report on fossil fuel divestment.
The editorial board endorses Wadood, Celentano, and Heyman.
Candidates for the General Studies Student Council and General Studies University Senate seats discussed the integration of GS students with the general student body, financial aid, and the appointment of positions without candidates at Monday’s debates.
Over the course of four hours on Sunday, candidates for Columbia College Student Council and the Engineering Student Council executive boards, class councils, and at-large positions presented and debated their platforms.
Among the recommendations mentioned in the report include expanding special interest housing options, allocating more funds for non-Ph.D. graduate financial aid, and examining the relationship between Public Safety and students of different racial and ethnic backgrounds.
Candidates for this year's Columbia College, School of Engineering and Applied Science, and School of General Studies University Senate seats have platform ideas ranging from creating a student position on the board of trustees to expanding financial aid for international and 3-2 students.
