A New Year!

As school starts up for the year, so does EASSU! We’ll be going to classes this week to deliver announcements about upcoming events. Here are the details!

1. We are planning to have our first general meeting on September 30. We will be holding elections for our remaining executive positions at that time, so if you’re interested in being part of our team, or just want to meet fellow EAS students, we hope to see you there! As always, there will be snacks! More information will follow once a location and time are set.

2. On Tuesday, September 21st at 4pm, EASSU will be joining up with the EAS graduate student union and faculty to hold an information session about the proposed dissolution of our department. We highly encourage students to come to this event to learn about what is happening and the consequences that the Dean’s new academic plan would have on their studies and the future of EAS at the university. The session will take place in the Purple Lounge of the EAS department on the 14th floor of Robarts. Everyone is welcome!

3. There will also be town hall meetings taking place with the Dean on Thursday Sept 23 at 4pm and Monday Sept 27 at 4pm, both in the OISE auditorium. This will be a great opportunity for students and all those affected to have their voices heard! It is critical that we have a large student representation at these meetings. This may be one of very few opportunities for us to come together as a group to present our issues with the EAS department’s inclusion in the School of Language and Literatures to the Dean, so please come out and support the campaign!
