***RELEASE TO CIO PRESIDENTS AND OFFICERS***
Dear student leader:
On behalf of Student Council, Happy New Year! 2010 was a great year for Student Council. Our community is a special place, and Student Council is working every day to protect and improve the quality of the student experience.
We work around the clock to guarantee we succeed in innovative and meaningful ways. Last year over 350 members of Council undertook 140 projects, including safety initiatives, sustainability projects, legislative lobbying, and academic affairs, among others. Many of these projects rely on the support of University administration, faculty, staff, and other student organizations. Student Council is very appreciative of your support and we look forward to working together in the future.
Please take the time to review an attached brief report on a few of the projects the Council managed in 2010. Many of these projects and programs have become sustainable and lasting impressions in the student experience, including Cavalier Education, the Independent Student Art Project Fund, the Lighten Up Campaign, the Safety Awareness Food Extravaganza, our scholarship programs, the Student Memorial Service, UVAirBus, UVA Day at the General Assembly, and our water distribution program.
Student Council is excited for the upcoming year and the opportunities to work together. If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Colin M. Hood
Student Council President
