CGP and Associate Dean of Students clarify Student Leadership Stipend policy
In the President’s Report, College Government President (CGP) Adeline Lee ’16 clarified the attribution of the credit for the passing of compensation for Resident Assistants (RAs) and House Presidents (HPs). Lee said that the Student Leadership Stipend (SLS) has roots in students’ efforts years before the Class of 2016 were firstyears. While there was a lot of advocacy this year, the Student Leadership Stipend became a reality due to all of the hard work that has been occurring for many years, Lee said. In terms of the RA/HP Compensation, Associate Dean of Students Carol Bate says it will come in the form of a stipend because that was what the committee decided on after much deliberation and research. Full details regarding the stipend will be available during the recruitment process for next year’s RAs and HPs. However, current RAs and HPs will hear about these details prior to that time.
