The Diversity Affairs Council (DAC) recognizes the events of Tuesday night because we are students and representatives of the Washington University in St. Louis community. Our purpose is to foster a more inclusive campus environment and provide a connection between the student body and administration.
The 2009-2010 school year was filled with new campus developments, student activism and controversy, allowing Wash. U. students to make their mark on the events of the year.
On Wednesday, Student Union (SU) Senate confirmed senior Shana Bartley as chair of the Diversity Affairs Council (DAC).
Student Union Treasury on Tuesday barely voted down legislation to create the Diversity Affairs Council, leaving the future of the proposal in doubt. The vote was 7-6-1. A two-thirds majority, or 10 votes, was needed to pass the legislation. Earlier that evening, Treasury had gone through the legislation’s articles and approved each one individually. When Treasury voted on the entire legislation, however, it did not pass.
In the midst of many issues affecting campus this year including the Mothers bar incident, Student Union Senate passed legislation to form a Diversity Affairs Council (DAC). Last week in Senate, the new legislation for the creation of the DAC passed with 22 votes in favor, two against and one abstention.
