Group extends GRC reforms

first_imgStudent Senate discussed the complete overhaul planned for the College Hookups, Alcohol and Sexual Assault education program, known as College HAS Issues, at Wednesday’s meeting. Student body vice president Katie Rose said the Gender Relations Center (GRC) wanted to foster a spirit of care on campus with the reformation of the program. “The GRC is basically planning to change everything about it,” Rose said. “They want to focus on community safety within the dorms, being our brother’s or sister’s keeper. The overall goal is to illustrate a positive, healthy social life, define sexual misconduct, identify risky behavior and make known the resources that are available.” Class of 2014 president Lizzie Helping said educating students about Indiana state laws in College HAS Issues would help to create a safer environment at Notre Dame. “With regards to the state laws about alcohol, is there any way we could give the freshmen a packet with the rules?” Helping said. “It’s one thing to hear about them, but it’s another to actually remember them.” Rose said she shared this concern because many students coming from other states are unaware of Indiana state laws pertaining to alcohol. “The state laws and rules about alcohol are not explicitly talked about [in the program],” Rose said. “A portion of the content of College HAS Issues is actually federally mandated, but we’re making sure to get that and additional state information to students without it being so stigmatized.” Pangborn Hall senator Emily Pollard said the GRC plans to make a short video about Indiana state laws to address the issue. Pollard is currently working with the center to implement changes to College HAS Issues. Looking ahead to the upcoming turnover, student union treasurer Alexa Shaw announced her search for a successor. “We are looking for a new treasurer, so I encourage all of you and your friends to apply,” Shaw said. “It is more skewed towards finance and accounting majors, but we’re opening it up to all majors.” Student body president Brett Rocheleau encouraged the Ssenate to recruit candidates for the position. “This is a great opportunity, especially for business majors, to run a budget of about $850,000,” Rocheleau said. “This year is unique because you could become the student union treasurer right away without having to be an assistant treasurer first.” Rocheleau also reported a positive meeting with the Community/Campus Advisory Coalition (CCAC) on Jan. 29. “[Tuesday] I went to the CCAC meeting to talk to police forces and neighborhoods,” Rocheleau said. “Everything is going good, everyone’s happy.” Department of community relations director Kelsey Eckenrode asked senators to encourage their neighbors to attend CommUniversity Day, which is set for Saturday, April 6. “It’s a day-long event, and we’re trying to get well over 1,000 participants,” Eckenrode said. “Previous years have had from 700-1,000 participants in the past, so it shouldn’t be too difficult if you spread the word in your dorms.” Contact Maddie Daly at [email protected]last_img read more

Kluivert keen on Van Gaal reunion

first_imgPatrick Kluivert would relish the chance to again work alongside new Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal in a coaching capacity.Van Gaal formally took charge at United on Wednesday after his role as Netherlands coach came to an end following the nation’s participation at the FIFA World Cup. Kluivert worked as Van Gaal’s assistant at international level for two years and also played under the 62-year-old at both Ajax and Barcelona as well as for their country. And while Kluivert is disappointed to have been overlooked for the number two role at Old Trafford in favour of Ryan Giggs, he has not ruled out the possibility of forming part of Van Gaal’s backroom staff at the Premier League club at some point. “I talked with Van Gaal and he said he would have loved to have given me the opportunity at Manchester United, but there was somebody already in my position,” the legendary former striker told talkSPORT. “I’m fine with it.  “I would have loved to come to Manchester United. I hope it can happen in the future, you never know.”The synergy that exists between the pair means Kluivert is well placed to make predictions about how United will fare with Van Gaal. Although returning the club to the UEFA Champions League following the disappointment of last season is arguably the Dutchman’s primary aim, Kluivert believes Van Gaal is setting his sights higher. He added: “He’s absolutely going for the Premier League title. A club like Manchester United always has to go for the title and that’s what he wants in his first year.”He’s a great coach and I know he’s looking forward to taking over at Manchester United.  “It will be a difficult year but I know he can do it. He can work well with the squad.”Van Gaal is a great tactician and he wants to win matches. He likes to play offensive and attractive football as well though. He won’t disappoint the Manchester United fans.”last_img read more
