Here are the highlights from the December 15 meeting of the CSU board of directors.

Paul Dangerfield, Capilano University president, gave a presentation to the board on his perspective of the university and its future. Providing students with an “experience second to none” was a focal point of the presentation.

The board shifted funding from capital expenditures to events within the intramurals and recreation fund.  

Plans annual Rail Jam event were presented to the board. Plans included a partnership with Blueprint Events, and further included plans for a DJ booth and beer garden. Board members raised concerns surrounding event costs and exclusivity and ultimately decided to simplify the event in order to increase accessibility. The recreation portion of the event was approved and the CSU’s vice-president student life was asked to revise plans for the social side of the event, to be decided at the first board meeting in January.
