Committee on House Life- Meeting Summary, 10-23-08

Present: All student representatives (Tamar Holoshitz (SAC), Ben Schwartz (SAC), Eric Hysen (SAC), Amol Jain, Siri Uotila) and five faculty members, plus guests

The Chair of the Committee on House Life, Dean Suzy Nelson, called the meeting to order, and after brief introductions the committee discussed the role of the media in the meetings. Crimson reporter Abby Phillip explained the paper’s policies and standards on reporting on meetings, and after a unanimous vote the committee decided to keep CHL meetings open to the Crimson reporters. Dr. Paul Barreira from UHS then talked about the mental health screenings in the Houses, which everyone thought was a wonderful initiative. Students asked about future publicity for the events, and Dr. Barreira agreed more should be done to promote the screenings among students. House renewal was briefly discussed, and everyone agreed that it will be one of the major challenges for this committee in the coming years.  However, no details or dates are available yet. Finally, Campus Life Fellow Jason McCoy talked about upcoming Harvard-Yale policies and changes from 2006.
