This committee started last year by DASB and with staff support (Cynthia, Tony, Hyon Chu, Dawn) trying to empower students in shared governance, and as a way to create robust bodies of decision making.  It rolled out last Spring 2018 quarter and made presentations to academic and classified senate.
