In an effort to continue increasing the transparency and accountability of LUCC, the administration of LUCC will be publishing an LUCC Newsletter once per term. This letter will contain information enlightening the Lawrence community of LUCC’s business during the previous term. Newly recognized student organizations: Lawrence University Racquetball Club LU Street Dance Lawrence University Tang Soo Do Club Lawrence University Student ASTA (American String Teachers Association) VITAL (Volunteers in Tutoring at Lawrence) LU Symphony Orchestra Social Activities Committee LUIGI (Lawrence University Investment Group Initiative) CSA – CD (Chinese Student Association – Chinese Dragon) Hip Hop Congress LUMA (Lawrence University Musicology Association) If you are interested in starting a student organization, information can be found on the LUCC webpage.LUCC is responsible for maintaining, changing and updating the Student Handbook. Below are the changes made during the previous term: Incense Extant Legislation – the burning of incense is no longer allowed in any residence building. LUCC By-Law IV.A – explicitly states that appointed members of the cabinet do not receive the franchise on any LUCC matters. LUCC By-Law IV.B.2.b.iv – proposed student organizations must offer a clearly iterated purpose within the Lawrence community in order to be considered for recognition by Steering Committee.
Resolutions are the will of the council directing actions to be taken on their behalf, if it pertains to matters of LUCC, notably the standing committees of LUCC. The following are resolutions made: Resolution to the Environmental Responsibility Committee – authorizing the use of the Voyager system to conduct a survey to gauge the Lawrence community’s environmental mindset as well as its habits. Resolution to Student Welfare – instructing the committee to conduct research into the possibility of a campus-wide smoking ban, including gathering student feedback.
