So, we all know that the future of CILASS is less than certain. And we all know that the achievements for the university have been amazing. Can I also say that the SAN has been a big influence on this achievement?
I don’t know if that would be blowing our trumpet a bit, but people do seem to speak well of us. Which is nice.
I was at an IBL café yesterday, and amongst other things we ended up talking about how the SAN might continue without CILASS being a base for operations.
The things that we need to keep in the coming years are:
- Good inter-departmental connections
- Good student links
- Continued interactions with members of departments
- A place to make ideas heard
- Training for the students to lead the way
It seems to me that we already have an amazing place for all of this to happen.
Every department has students on the staff student committee – all it takes is to expand one of their jobs a bit (and maybe throw in a bit of money) and we have a perfect SAN. One that could potentially be better than what we have now because there would be official links to bringing change to departments?
Just a thought.
