Student Government announces reinstatement of Student Life Council
Observer Staff Report | Tuesday, February 14, 2023
On Tuesday evening, Student Government announced the reinstatement of the Student Life Council (SLC), a public meeting and forum with the vice president of student affairs, associate provost for undergraduate education and the student body president.
Each meeting will address a specific topic, and students will have the chance to hear about the work of each group in the area and ask questions.
“This forum will be fantastic because what it will enable us as students to do is to ask questions face to face with decision makers about anything going on that may bother us,” student body president Patrick Lee said.
The first meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 21 from 8 to 9 p.m. in Carey Auditorium in Hesburgh Library, and the forum will reconvene two other times during the spring semester.
The first meeting will address faith formation and questions of meaning at Notre Dame and will include Fr. Pete McCormick as the session’s guest speaker. The SLC was initiated by University President Fr. Theodore Hesburgh during the Vietnam War after he decided it necessary for students to be informed about the decisions of the University and share their opinions.
