KYRA & SARAH 2017VOTE KYRA COOPER AND SARAH HOLTMEYER FOR STUDENT GOVERNMENT PRESIDENT/VICE PRESIDENT ON APRIL 18-20 AT VOTE.TRUMAN.EDU
We have a five-point platform covering the following issues: Mental Health, Communication, External Affairs, Administrative Relations, and Campus Improvement.
We aim to partner with administration and student groups to raise awareness of mental health while promoting available resources both on and off campus. Our plan is to create readily available resources in a convenient online space which incorporate off-campus and on-campus options for students to be aware of and utilize.
We believe communication between the Student Government and the student body is of the utmost importance, and we hope to increase this by making better use of social media platforms, making meeting minutes more accessible, holding a State of the University address, and actively engaging with students regarding relevant issues. We also hope to establish a university-wide leadership conference to encourage students to recognize and utilize their leadership abilities and become involved in actively improving the university.
We want to create a close relationship between the city of Kirksville and our student body through Student Government. We have already begun this process by assisting the People for Better Parks and engaging with the students of the Kirksville High School Student Council. In the future, we hope to create web resources to help students recognize opportunities and activities in the community to further engage with the city.
This upcoming year will be a time of transition for Truman State as the university will be seeking to hire three new Vice Presidents in Academic Affairs, Student Affairs, and Academic Advancement. We want to be involved in this process to represent student voices. Both of us have experience engaging administration and we will seek transparency in these hiring processes, all budget-related items, and the implementation of new programs.
We hope to increase art on campus by looking to under-utilized areas of campus and engaging with students as well as local artists to unify campus culture and increase art exposure.
