University to host 11th annual town hall meeting

Written by Guethshina Altena/News Director

For the 11th time in FIU’s history, the University will be hosting a Town Hall Meeting with President Rosenberg at the Biscayne Bay Campus.
Student Government Association of Biscayne Bay Campus will be in attendance to have an open dialogue with students and FIU President Rosenberg about the future of BBC.

Dianne Morales the SGA BBC Director of Events has been helping in the planning of the annual town hall meeting for the last two years.

“It’s a good venue for students to see the relationship between their student government representative and the president himself.” Morales said “It’s a good opportunity for students to learn that their voices can be heard and they are avenues to which they can express their concerns, not only through the town hall meeting through contacting their student government representative as well.

Morales said that this meeting is also important to put a face to names of the representatives of the student body and highlight the relationship SGA BBC has with the president and the role they play in  helping to facilitate those kind of conversations.

“Students voiced their concerns in the past about the lack of food options and the availability of some classes at the Biscayne Bay campus.” Morales said.

The town hall meeting will take place with the participation of the Assistant Vice-President of Student Affairs Eric Arneson, President Rosenberg, and SGA President and FIU Foundation Board Member Allhan Mejia.

“Before taking questions, President Rosenberg will update students and people attending about the ongoing projects that the University has.” Morales said.

The meeting discussion will be guided by the types of questions asked by the audience, which is why Morales recommends attendees to come ready with questions and concerns that they may have.

“It’s is open to all students and anybody who is part of the FIU community” Morales said, encouraging interested students who primarily goes to MMC or EC to attend the meeting as well.
