In a recent meeting, the Dean of Students’ Advisory Group invited students from across campus
concerned with working with the administration to meet student concerns. Students representing
SEPC, Student Assembly, BEAG, BSFP, Bennington Connects, Be Well, Kalopsia as well as a
forming group of International students, to name a few, were present. The group decided that a
conversation regarding some form of representational governance
will continue virtually over the
Summer and into the Fall to consider the creation of such a structure. International students are
coalescing into a group with elected representatives to connect to this developing entity, and to
provide a platform to share concerns regarding the International student experience. If you are
interested in this conversation about student representation, and wish to be a part of it, please
consult with any of the Advisory Group members and/or email me over the summer.
Advisory Group members are: George Salvat, Carolina Roque, Rumana Mehdi, Jenna Kadota, Emily
Gordis, Lia Eversfield, Francesca Edwards, Martin Carrillo, Lauren Brady, and Geoffrey Ballinger.
Have a great Summer! Congratulations Graduates! As always, you may contact me at
