Redux: Topics addressed by SAC during the 2007-2008 academic year

Besides facilitating all-staff events and making committee appointments, SAC listens to each question and each concern brought forward by a member of the staff. We do our best to resolve the questions for the initial inquirer and to inform the entire staff about these issues for general edification. Here are some concerns we have addressed this year; please read our minutes for more information! Show your support or distain for any issue by emailing staffsac!
