More transparency from ASUA (no, really)

Posted in Campus, Politics by Evan Lisull on 1 October 2009

As part of ASUA’s overall web revamping, the Senate is preparing a new site, which is already live here. The site doesn’t seem quite ready for public release quite yet – take, for example, the cognitive dissonance on the “Meet the Senators” page. One section that is ready, though, is the Meeting Minutes section. All the minutes for meetings this year – as well as any consent agendas or attached resolutions that may been considered – are currently available for public viewing.

A year and a day ago, this site called for such access to minutes, and it’s always refreshing – and humbling – to see proposed remedies actually put into action. Transparency has been a pet issue here; and while much e-ink has been spilled describing the lack of access, it’s always good to see improvements from the status quo.

    Glad to see you found the work I didn’t get quite done last year. haha

    The Senate has been great in solidifying the website and it hopefully will be launched in the next couple of weeks!
