ITEMS DISCUSSED

1. Introduction

Executive Vice President Divya Subbaian opened the meeting by introducing the speakers and going through the agenda for the session.

2. Center for Intercultural Engagement (CIE)

Naomi Boase, Assistant Director of Center for intercultural engagement gave a background about herself and what the center does and what it offers to the Graduate Student body. CIE focuses on diminishing intercultural differences and nurture a community of inclusion. It is located at 144 Curry center and the Social Justice Research Center SJRC is also another physical space where students can reserve affinity spaces to engage and experience the cultural life at Northeastern.

The collective objective of these organizations along with several other student affinity clubs associated with them is to foster inclusion and promote opportunities for intersectional identity development.

Some of the programs are i) Re-envisioning our world: Me and White Supremacy ii) A time of impeachment & insurrection iii) Libre Collective Spring 2021 iv) Empower   v) Global Leadership Program vi) Our Voices vii) The FUNL Network

These are series of workshops, events and training programs that revolve around different themes of intercultural differences for each of the ethnic identity groups that are a part of Northeastern.

3. Resume Writing – Elizaveta Butsenevskaya (NU Alumni, Product Designer)

Elizaveta, an international student with experience gives a brief background about herself and about her passion project which is to help international students understand the whole job search process and challenges that they face.

She talks about how to pass the ATS scan and get your Resume to be read by a recruiter. The key takeaways are:

i) 75% job applications are rejected before they are read by a human due to the usage of applications tracking systems by companies to streamline the hiring process.

ii) Tweaking the job role based on the job description gets extra points by the ATS system.

iii) The technical terminology for the hard skills should be an exact match with those required in the job description.

Iv) ATS would be unable to scan through fancy resumes with creative edits and hence would not pass the resume to the recruiter.

v) Creative resumes can be used when the resume is directly being sent to the recruiter or being printed out at the time of the job interview.

vi) ATS works better with the Word format as compared to PDF. 

4. Upcoming Events and Feedback/Polls:

Divya Subbaian abd Gagan Prabhu gives an update about the upcoming Events for the following weeks which are the i) GSG Merchandise Giveaway ii) Virtual Escape Room iii) Movie Night. Zoom Polls and feedback sessions were conducted to see which date students would prefer for the virtual escape room and movie night. She talks about the various committees that are a part of the Graduate student government while also answering questions about the roles and duties of these committees.

5. Environmental Justice Climate Equity

Yasmina Estepe and Aubrey Thomas talk about the NU CAP which is a student led organization which focuses on creating the climate action plan for a sustainable environment with a focus on inclusion, diversity and equity. They brainstormed ideas along with students on possible ways to have a greater outreach and student engagement. They also went over some of the projects that they are currently taking up and along with their efforts for a more sustainable future. Some of the great ideas included holding a competition between different departments and organizations with the goal to achieve sustainability in any of their day-to-day operations. Another great recommendation was to utilize social media influencers of various departments to act as mediators to connect and work together for a better outreach.

 6. Question and Answer

The next Senate meeting is scheduled for April 10th, 2021, 12:00p.m.-1:00p.m. (EST) in #333 Curry Student Center and through Zoom.

1. Guest Speakers from SAIL

Vincenza Parella, Digital Communications Specialist

Priyanka Gujja, President SAIL Student Club

SAIL is a mobile and web platform that was built by Northeastern to maximize students’ experiential learning while at Northeastern and beyond.

SAIL platform helps students in the following areas:

  • Find experiences at Northeastern that best meet the students’ goal
  • Capture those experiences and the learning from the experiences digitally and hold onto them for life
  • Connect & Express the experiences of the students together to see all the experiences come together to prepare students for future experiences
  • Network with peers, alumni, and educators to expand the students’ learning

Why SAIL?

SAIL gives the tools to students to take charge of their experiential learning. Centers on a framework of learning, SAIL provides a way for all experiences at Northeastern to be tagged to specific learning outcomes. This way, as students move from experiences to experiences, students see how they are developing in key skills and masteries.

The SAIL Framework is a holistic approach to learning that lets students capture their growth in every experience. It includes (1) Intellectual agility, (2) Global mindset, (3) Well-being, (4) Social consciousness and commitment, and (5) Professional and personal effectiveness. Each of these dimensions contribute equally to students’ journeys.

SAIL Student Club – The organization addresses how to create student engagement in SAIL. The club helps students understand what SAIL is, why to use it, and how to use it for students’ benefits. In order to do this, the club host biweekly workshops, competitions, social events, and much more.

AGENDA

  1. Guest Speakers from University Health and Counseling Services
  2. Vice President of Student Affairs
  3. Student Group Approval – Khoury Master’s Students Council

 

ITEMS DISCUSSED

1. Guest Speakers from University Health and Counseling Services

Kelly A. Moran, LMHC, director of Coordinated Care and Health Promotion, and Renee Smith, Student Health Plan Manager, of the University Health and Counseling Services (UHCS) spoke about the services offered and resources available to students.

During the pandemic, the office is serving the university community through Telehealth. No walk-in appointments are available at this time. Below are highlights of the presentation:

The University Health Report must be submitted by the graduate students one month before entering the university, Proof of Immunity is required by the Massachusetts state law. The governor of Massachusetts included a new mandate in August 2020 which requires every student under the age of 30 who attend even one day of class in person, need to show proof that they have received the Influenza immunization (flu vaccine) by December 31st, 2020.

UHCS offers medical services, including assessment for routine concerns; urgent care; women’s health, sports medicine, nutrition visits; and referrals to ongoing community and specialist care.

Well Connection – Is a program for students enrolled in the Northeastern University Student Health Plan (NUSHP). In the plan, students have access to the Telehealth services. The services allow for immediate consultation with a medical clinician on video(Zoom) for both physical and mental concerns for a $10 co-pay per visit.

Mental Health Support – Offers scheduled phone consultations with mental health clinicians who conduct a brief assessment and make recommendations for care. These recommendations might include a referral for ongoing therapy or psychopharmacology with a clinician off campus and/or follow up with a clinician at UHCS. Additional services are Find@Northeastern; medication assessment; student support groups; and sexual assault response and treatment.

Mental Health Services: Support Groups – Several support groups are offered each semester. Groups are confidential, safe, and nonjudgmental spaces where a student can offer and receive support from your peers, learn new skills, find connections, and explore ways of coping. Anyone interested in joining a group can contact UHCS at the contact information below.

Find @Northeastern – provides “Support when you need it, anytime, anywhere” for full-time degree seeking students. The program offers support and resources that helps one find oneself, can give one a peace of mind, and can provide one’s distinctive path; designed to offer students an immediate touchpoint for help and resources at anytime from anywhere.

Key Benefits are, expands immediate mental health clinician access to 24/7; makes Northeastern mental health response available to our students locally, nationally, and internationally; serves as an additional access point for students who may hesitate to reach out for in-person mental healthcare; enhances referral options, process, and capacity; and removes a cost barrier for Telehealth and face-to-face therapy.

24/7 Support Line – Provides support anytime and anywhere; the staff is master’s level, licensed mental health counselors; immediate safety and risk assessment and coordination with emergency protocols as appropriate; and non-emergent connection to next steps, resources, and treatment options.

UHCS and Find@Northeastern services are confidential. The office is connected with the NU Police Department (NUPD) regarding safety concerns. “When in doubt or concerned about a student – talk it out!” (and follow up with your supervisor and make them aware of the issue).

NUPD, UHCS and We Care are working together to provide services and connect students to resources. We Care focuses on intense issues and if a learner is considered “at risk” or is of concern, the student should be on We Care’s radar. Anyone of these organizations can direct students to the correct services for them.

Northeastern University Student Health Plan (NUSHP)

  • Coverage – Available anywhere; comprehensive healthcare coverage at school, at home, while traveling, on co-op or study abroad
  • Savings – Affordable coverage, low co-payments, caps on annual out-of-pocket costs, and access to reduced dental, vision and pharmacy
  • Global protection – 24/7 emergency medical care and assistance anywhere in the world.

Steps to accessing NUSHP membership ID # are available on MyNortheastern account. The plan will be using the online services in lieu of a physical membership card. The virtual membership card is available for students to present at the doctor visit. NUSHP is in partnership with Gallagher/MyBlueApp.

Questions:

  • What is the exact deadline to get the flu vaccine?

            Answer: Kelly said that we are encouraging the students to get the vaccine earlier, before the winter break to ensure to get the vaccine into your system 14 days before it will actually work. CDC recommends getting it by October before the flu season begins but the state requires you to get it by 31st December. Sooner is better to accommodate requests without them piling up during holidays.

  • Jared asked if there are any programs to support students to help with school stress (with the finals coming up)?

           Answer: Kelly said that the Mental health team is coming up workshops to help with that as finals will be different than before and how to manage travel, studies etc. It will be updated on the website.

2. Vice President of Student Affairs

Vice President of Student Affairs Deependra Singh spoke about the student group recognition process and the gift card policy:

  • Gift card policy has maximum value for recognized organizations, including Research/competition based: $400 (face value <$150), and Meet and Greet events: $150 (face value <$20)

3. Student Group Approval – Khoury Master’s Students Council (KMSC)
