Brief: ASNIC to work closer with rival student governments
ASNIC, board of trustee members and NIC President Joe Dunlap traveled to Boise to work with representatives from community colleges across the state on intercollegiate cooperation.
The meeting, which was part of a larger higher education week sponsored by legislatures, was focused on drafting a charter to unite the College of Western Idaho, the College of southern Idaho and NIC’s respective student governments.
Christopher Deane, ASNIC president, said that the charter will encourage future boards to cooperate with other campuses across the state to result in better community colleges and to better student government.
“It was an amazing experience and it was extremely productive to meet all legislators,” Deane said.
Deane said working with other student body presidents was also rewarding.
“They are really on top of it and really active in their discussion with the future of community colleges,” Deane said. “They had really great ideas and great plans.”
