Here are the highlights from the June 30 meeting of the CSU board of directors.

The board has approved plans for Captivate, a large-scale back-to-school event to take place in the Cedar Courtyard on September 14. This event is the first of its kind at Capilano and will include music performances, giveaways, and access to a beer garden.

The board has also created a residence relationship committee to run until October 15. The residence relations committee is dedicated to determine concrete methods of supporting students on the residences. This limited term committee will be comprised of CSU’s vice-president academic, vice-president student life, and three other board members.

The board has released $500 to send up to four board members and one staff member to Victoria to attend the swearing in ceremony for the new provincial government.

CSU accessibility coordinator, Andrew Dillman, will be sent to the Canadian Alliance of Student Associations’ Policy and Strategic Planning Conference. The Canadian Alliance of Student Association is a non-partisan not-for-profit student organization composed of student associations from across Canada. Hassan Merali, board of governors representative, has been designated as an alternate.   

The board released funding to have a window be installed in the executive office in the Maple building.

Harrison Cho was appointed student-at-large position on the governance committee.
