Lynn University’s student government, Knights of the Roundtable (KOR), empowers students to make changes to positively impact the university and the student experience. KOR is comprised of 12 Fighting Knights who serve in liaison between the students and administration. With the 2018 academic year underway, KOR is ready to listen to and support any ideas students may have.
In the past, KOR led the charge to address student concerns including: expanding printing accessibility, creating the Dialogues and adding an ice cream machine to the Elmore Dining Commons.
This year KOR adopted a new student leadership structure that helps improve project efficiency and student involvement within the organization. Within the new structure, the Lynn student body now has the power to elect the president, vice president, treasurer, secretary and a council of presidents. After being sworn to office, these five officers appoint the remaining seven positions within the organization.
“These elections allow students to be active participants in deciding the student representatives that will embody their student government,” said Anthony Altieri, vice president of student affairs.
Every week KOR conducts internal meetings to discuss the status of projects and upcoming events and to revisit students’ expressed concerns. By coordinating with faculty across all departments, KOR has the ability to efficiently change the culture of the university. For students looking to make a difference, KOR hosts monthly open meetings where students can communicate upcoming projects, news and concerns they have.
Students can also share ideas in person during KOR’s monthly open meetings.
