Information and Questions
Figueiredo updated the Board about the service reviews. They stated that they had met with the Diversity Services and Maccess PTMs to discuss the findings and directions from the Board. Figueiredo stated that they looked into the race-based peer support, and spoke to Ryerson, and clubs to see what they were utilizing. They stated that there have been a lot of conversations about the Indigenous liaison position and will be following up on that as well. They added that they will also be meeting with EIO next Wednesday about anti-oppression practises training. Wooder asked Figueiredo about the Indigenous liaison and if they would invite a rep from the community instead of recruiting. Figueiredo responded that in the review the idea was to work with the bodies on campus to get a solution, and that there isn’t a specific action plan for the role because they haven’t had the chance to speak with them. Florean stated that they spoke to the Clubs Administrator about making reporting non-compliant clubs easier. They stated that they decided they should look into who can report a club because as of right now it’s only execs and those in the clubs, not someone outside of it. Florean announced that they are currently planning events for SRA Business. Farah stated that since the Student Choice Initiative being announced the MSU has been setting up meetings with MPPs and that they were getting traction given the timelines. Farah explained that the plan is to communicate to the Faculty Societies specifically on how this would affect them. Farah stated that hopefully an FAQ will be sent out to clubs and services soon, and that they are continuously connecting with other schools and coming up with strategies.
