- Future of Student Governance Task Force Report(Virginia Tech, 2021)In the fall of 2020, President Timothy Sands and Provost Cyril Clarke appointed Kim O’Rourke, Vice President for Policy & Governance, and Frank Shushok, Jr., Vice President for Student Affairs, to lead the Task Force on the Future of Student Governance to work in parallel with the President’s Committee on Governance. The overarching charge of the Task Force was as follows: The Task Force on the Future of Student Governance at Virginia Tech will work in parallel with the President’s Committee on Governance with the specific goal of developing a set of recommendations for redesigning the structure of student governance to more effectively represent the voice of the undergraduate, graduate, and professional students. The recommended structure will define more clearly the distinct roles and responsibilities of the various bodies involved in student governance and relationships between them, and will foster inclusion, collaboration, and coordination among those bodies. The Task Force will assess the strengths and deficiencies of the current structure, benchmark best practices at other universities, and develop a set of recommendations tailored to Virginia Tech’s overall system of shared governance— which may include proposed additions, eliminations, mergers, or scope modifications to the existing governance entities. Preliminary recommendations will be shared with the President’s Committee on Governance for feedback and refined for submission to the President at the end of spring semester 2020. With the President’s endorsement, specific proposals will then proceed through the governance system during spring semester 2021, with a goal of implementation at the beginning of fall semester 2021.
