- Student's views heard by trustees (Letter to the Editor )
In last Friday's Viewpoint an Observer Editorial entitled "Board of Trustees should meet here" was a well written opinion with some interesting points. I would like to thank The Observer for noting the hard work of the Student Union Board of Trustees Committee. Additionally, I am glad to see that they agree with the Student Union's attempts to encourage a student voice at all Board of Trustees meetings. I cannot tell you how important Brooke and I feel that the voice of the students be heard at all levels of University governance. In fact, that is why we have worked so hard to allow students into the winter meeting of the Board of Trustees.
