LEARNING LOG: MHCC students shrink government
Mt. Hood Community College's Associated Student Government combined its two main governing bodies — the Student Senate and the Executive Council — into one entity called Associated Student Government (ASG).
The merger will reduce student government to 13 total positions.
The aim is to be more efficient and communicate better with students.
The MHCC Student Senate voted unanimously for the merger and is expected to be ratified by the Executive Council in January.
The ASG will handle budget requests for student clubs, organizations and programs among other functions. For more information on ASG at the college, visit mhcc.edu/ASG.
MHCC gets grant for veteran students
Mt. Hood Community College received a grant of $60,720 from The Oregon Department of Veterans' Affairs to improve service to students who have served in the military.
The agency awarded $1 million to expand campus veteran resource centers at 14 of Oregon's public universities and community colleges.
The grant is part of 2017 legislation — the Campus Veteran Resource Center Grant Program — to augment existing
resources by funding projects or programs, designed to improve the lives of student veterans and help them succeed.
