Resolution regarding Officer Elections

  • At the December 11, 2014 meeting, the Council approved the following resolution:

Furthermore, if a Senator is elected to the EC in his/her third year, his/her term on the FSC would be automatically extended by one year and the school election normally scheduled for that Senator’s seat will be postponed for one year. In no event, however, may a Senator’s term be extended by more than two years under this provision.

Resolution regarding Coles Redevelopment

  • At the November 6, 2014 meeting, the Council approved the following resolution:
  • The T-FSC considers swim instruction to be an issue of fundamental safety. This is especially the case for children, as drowning is the second most common cause of unintentional injury death among children, according to the CDC (after motor vehicles). The T-FSC also notes that at present, other children's swim instruction options near Faculty Housing are considerably more expensive than the offerings at Coles. Accordingly, the T-FSC respectfully requests that:
    • NYU continue to make swimming lessons available on an affordable basis to the university community after the closure of Coles, either by direct offering of classes or by subsidizing third party classes.
    • NYU consider moving the current swim instruction program at Coles to the Palladium to the extent that the facilities at the Palladium can be rendered appropriate and safe for children.
    • Alternatively, to the extent that NYU does not move swim instruction to the Palladium, NYU provide some meaningful subsidy towards swim instruction at non-NYU facilities.
