The Student Assembly Executive Committee for Diversity Initiatives is sponsoring a panel titled, “Mental Health Issues in the W&M Community.” This panel is aimed at exploring diversity through a new lens, the diversity of mental health here on campus. Each one of is exposed to different biological and environmental factors, leading to different responses to situations. In a general time of heightened stress, it is time for us to sit down as a community and discuss the various factors at play. What is the administration doing to curb this heightened level of stress? What was the response of the administration, the counseling center and the student body to the recent tragedies which shook our campus community?
Come listen and also have your voice heard.
Wednesday, April 20th at 8 pm in McGlothlin 20
Patricia Volp, Dean of Students
Professor Victoria Foster, School of Education
Dr. David Goode-Cross, Counseling Center
Ryann Tanap, Junior, Performer
The event will be introduced by a student performance from IPAX.
I truly hope to see you there!
Thank you for your interest in the Student Assembly’s Gender Neutral Housing Option proposal.
Remember, the Gender Neutral Housing Option is a choice for students who decide to choose to take advantage of it. No one will be forced to participate in gender neutral housing.
Below is a summary of the four stages of gender neutral housing implementation as outlined by “A Guideline for Adapting Residence Life Policies to Demands for Greater Gender Inclusiveness (Revised March 2011).”
Stage 1A: This stage is currently implemented. Please see the Adaptative Housing page on Residence Life’s website. This policy allows individual students with approved special needs to apply to live in singles.
Stage 1B: This stage suggests Residence Life allow four students with approved special needs to apply to live in Ludwell Quads. The apartments would have same-sex bedrooms and mixed-sex living spaces.
Stage 2: This stage permits all students to choose to live in a Ludwell quad apartment in which the bedrooms are same-sex and the living spaces are mixed-sex.
Stage 3: This stage suggests all students may reside in a room with members of the opposite biological sex in any Ludwell apartment.

When: Sunday April 10, 2011 at 1 p.m. (registration and packet pick-up begins at 11 a.m.)

Last year, President Reveley formed a committee to review the Honor System. The Honor System includes the Honor code, the Honor Council, and the Honor process.
For more information on the Honor System, click here
The committee is currently asking for campus input on the Honor Council process through a survey and small focus groups. If you have any questions, comments, complaints, or praise on/for the Honor System, please feel free to contact Zann Isacson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Additionally, you may access the student survey from this link:
President Clemens of the Government Department chairs the committee and sent out the message below:
If you are like most students (and faculty) you get a bit weary of email surveys–but we promise that the one you are receiving here is both brief and important.
Last Fall, President Reveley charged a committee of students, faculty and administrators with reviewing all aspects of the College’s Honor system–its formal standards of academic integrity and its rules/procedures for upholding them.
Whether you have ever had direct involvement with the Honor Code or Council, your feedback would be invaluable in helping us determine what students think is most important in this regard, most in need of closer examination, and possibly in need of changing.
As promised, the survey below drawn up by the Committee’s student membership is brief but also offers open-ended questions allowing further comment, so please take a few minutes to complete and submit it.
Many thanks in advance,
Clay Clemens, Government Department
Please answer the survey! The Honor System affects the entire campus community and the greater amount student input the committee receives can shape the Honor System to become more pro-student.
The Honor Council Election will take place on Thursday, February 23rd. You may vote online from 8am to 8pm on Thursday via a link that will be sent out to your email. To view the candidate profiles, click here.

Greetings on behalf of Office of Community Engagement and Scholarship’s
“Stand Up Campaign.” This year, the Campaign will aim to raise awareness
about key social justice issues, to honor those who have “stood up” for
social justice, and to help William and Mary students better understand how to
work for social justice on campus. The Campaign is Feb 7-11 and will have lots
of events throughout the week.
During the week, we will be putting up posters in the Sadler Center with
information and pictures honoring “Titans of Justice.” We want our campus
to be able to read and learn about key people who have worked for social
Email Marielle Larson, one of SA’s Undersecretaries of Volunteer Services at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or ideas!
And check-out the Stand-Up Campaign and Active Citizen Conference book display on the first floor of Swem over by the group study area. The display consists of 50 books dealing with volunteering, service-learning, and broader conceptions of engagement. Feel free to grab a copy of the booklists which have been included in the display; one focuses on service learning/voluntarism and the other on the social responsibility of business. Special thanks to Swem for their support in this partnership.
Recyclemania is a friendly competition for university recycling programs to promote waste reduction activities to their campus communities. Over a 10-week period, schools report recycling and trash data which are then ranked according to who collects the largest amount of recyclables per capita, the largest amount of total recyclables,the least amount of trash per capita, or have the highest recycling rate. With each week’s reports and rankings, participating schools watch how their results fluctuate against other schools and use this to rally their campus communities to reduce and recycle more.
