A constituent recently asked about bilingual compensation but didn't have any specific questions.
Sen. Allison Peeler
17:20
THANK YOU!
Sen. Jamie Brand
18:00
Thank you

Will do. Thank you, Charlotte!
Sen. Allison Peeler

CT discussion: so important. It seems like a lackluster reason to say that "no other universities offer it" as a reason NOT to do it. Don't we want to be different and stand out from the crowd?! (Just my two cents :) )
Sen. Allison Peeler
18:47
*CT = comp time
Sen. James Jackson (he/him)
19:49
If it’s about translation services, I would like to know too! As a part of our effort to be more inclusive, we had started translating our inquiry form for reporting discrimination, harassment, and retaliation to Spanish but the staff member who offered to do it left. Is there an official process for that type of service?
Sen. James Jackson (he/him)
20:03
^ In response to the bilingual compensation question
Sen. Jamie Brand
20:15
That's a good point, James
Sen. Allyson Gardner (she/her/hers)
20:20
Great question James!
Megan Cunningham (she/hers)
21:11
We looked into translating forms and were told they had to be professionally translated, not translated by a staff member who speaks spanish
Megan Cunningham (she/hers)
21:24
and the translation fees were high
Sen. Allison Peeler
21:34
Yes!
Sen. Rob Pearson
23:11
I have a question for Maria, following up on some old business.
Sen. Jamie Brand
23:24
What about compensation for staff who communicate directly with students/families, rather than translating a document or form?
Oxsormira (Kathy) Neira
23:42
I agree Maria!
Sen. Jamie Brand
23:47
That's my question, not sure if it would be one of my constituent's questions
Sen. Jamie Brand
24:13
Yes, thank you!
Sen. Jamie Brand
24:55
Thank you so much!
Past Chair Suzan Cruz

Sorry I am late!
Sen. Rob Pearson

Any chance you could poll all the Senators as of 9/1 to see how many will continue virtual vs going in person? If vast majority want one option over the other, the SS may be able to save money by just going with one of the options.
Sen. Alexis Guess - she/her
