November Notes Lecture Series

NN

The November Notes were a series of lectures and round table discussions from six people who told us about their work and life experiences.

The first was Ambassador Keller, the Dutch Ambassador to Turkey who told us about his experiences living abroad and representing the Netherlands in Turkey, and in Russia where his previous post was. His lecture was followed a few days later by a lecture by Dr. Norgaard, who discussed liberal education in Europe and the history of our education system and the contemporary forms. Hans van Otterloo discussed his life living in Kabul, Afghanistan, in one of our round-table sessions which allowed all students involved to ask questions about his work with setting up agricultural schools in an informal setting. Dr Finn gave the third lecture of the series, and presented his work on the musical influences in Modern Brazil in relation to race and place. The second round table session was with Martine van der Does, who is working in humanitarian aid in the Dutch government, and who described her experiences when disasters around the world struck and how to budget and distribute aid. The closing session of the lecture series was a round table discussion with Hank van Ort, who is working for NATO.

The series were very well received both by the students and those who gave the lectures, and we as Universalis were happy to call this a succesful lecture series!

Hear ye, hear ye!
Audit General Assembly is happening on November 15th, at 18:30 in D0.033!
Mainly, we will be passing the semester report, including the financial report from the fall. The Independent Body will be auditing the books and financial report at the start of the GA. We will also look at the phrasing changes made to the Statutes. More excitingly, we will be introducing a new candidate committee, a new IB member, as well as announcing the positions in the Social Board and the AC which will soon be opened! Yay!
Find the agenda, the minutes from our last GA, the semester and the financial report, the policy manual, and the statutes on the UCMSA Universalis website: ucmsauniversalis.com under 'Documents' before the GA. Confused on how to GA? The Website also houses the GA Crash Course given by the IB! Motions can be sent to independentbody@gmail.com before the 8th of November 2017.
ALL committee board members are required to attend the GA. Any other students are more than welcome to join the GA as well. This is your opportunity to participate in the democratic process. If you cannot attend, please find someone to proxy for you. Proxy forms can be found on the website but you can also come pick them up in the board room. They must be signed by the person missing the GA as well as dated and handed in before the beginning of the GA to the Universalis Social Board Secretary (Eleanor Máire Kelly).

As per usual, we will have beers and snacks as a treat in the end!

Looking forward to seeing you there,
