THE COMMITTEE ON STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS (ComSo) is asking for the participation of students to answer a survey on its initiative to “abolish automatic memberships of students to academic organizations that pertain to the courses they are taking.”
According to Monique Recto, ComSo head, students are encouraged to voice out their opinions by answering a virtual survey. A link
A link of the survey can be found in the official Facebook page of the Silliman University Student Government (SUSG). Also, copies of the survey have been e-mailed by the Office of Information and Publications to the official SU Gmail accounts of students.
The survey will run until Dec. 2. Student responses on this survey will be one of the bases to pursue the policy.
According to Recto, this initiative, to not automatically absorb students to their respective course organizations, was started by former SUSG vice president Nikko Calledo.
“There has never been any written document that says students of this course are automatically members of this organization. It is just assumed and it became a tradition,” Recto said.
Recto added that the ComSo is strongly encouraging the student body to respond.
“We are on the process of gathering information on what the student body has to say, if they approve of this or not,” Recto said.
