September Monthly Initiative '17

September's Monthly Initiative was all about academics at Northeastern. There were two major components: education and feedback.

For education, SGA's Academic Affairs Committee put together a number of resource info-sheets, which were shared during during several tabling events. SGA's social media team also shared information about academic resources at Northeastern.

For feedback, SGA's Academic Affairs Committee put together a survey on advising, international experiences, co-op, and textbooks. The committee also gathered feedback on the college expectations process during in person tabling events. Based on the feedback gathered, SGA's Academic Affairs Committee will be addressing the high advisory turnover rate, working to expand international opportunities for STEM colleges, confirm concerns about COS advising that were expressed in the survey, and continue to push for the reduction in use of homework codes.
