What is the Initiative for Community, Equity, and Diversity (ICED) Leadership Board?
• It is the committee that will be continuing discussions which began in the Campus Climate Survey and the Diversity Initiative Group (DIG).

What can we do to make New Student Week better?
• Senate discussed the recommendations of the First Year Experience Task Force.
• The Task Force recommended that instead of being run by Campus Activities, it should be organized by a steering committee.

• NSW may be integrated with new freshmen seminars.

What is the Student Leadership Council?
