first_imgAs students return from Fall Break, the Campus Life Council (CLC) reconvened Monday afternoon to discuss on-campus diversity, gender relations and office hours. Coccia said he joined student body vice president Nancy Joyce and student body chief of staff Juan Rangel to meet with representatives from the Office of Student Affairs to discuss topics including diversity in leadership positions. The Council has considered the need to diversify leadership in the past, Coccia said. “This is something that has been recommended since … 1992, [1993], [1994] … that was a topic of discussion before we got there, so I think that [the Council’s suggestion] helped reinforce that point,” Coccia said. Coccia said his team also suggested all classrooms and residence halls on campus include a statement of inclusion. On the topic of gender relations, Coccia said the group also encouraged the Office of Student Affairs to “get the conversation started” on what it means to be a transgender student at Notre Dame, specifically what it means when it comes to student housing. He said PrismND, the recently created student organization for LGBTQ student issues, will be examining this topic as well. Another topic that was discussed during the meeting was students’ use of office hours. Specifically, the Council discussed the fact that students often don’t use office hours very much, if at all. Coccia said the Council will focus on these and other issues as the school year progresses.  “We’ll focus, for the rest of the semester, on the intermediate steps…. to either help get us more information, or to start addressing some of the issues we’ve been talking about,” he said. “We’ve been asking so many questions… [and] we want to start figuring out what the solutions are.” Contact Thomas Hughes at [email protected]last_img read more

first_imgThe agent of Black Stars coach Avram Grant has angered football officials for his derogatory comments about Ghana’s top flight.In defending his client’s long holidays abroad, Rubie Saif told the BBC that the local leagues’ players totally fall short of Grant’s requirements for a national team call up.This, he hinted, justifies the Israeli’s endless journeys around the world in search of top class talent.But some football officials have taken a contrary view and taken a swipe at the agent. One of them is Premier League Board boss Welbeck Abrah-Appiah.“It is only a poor, unproductive and lazy teacher who goes about complaining about,” he told Joy Sports.“Has [Rubie] come up with one single idea [or] advice to the GFA [on] how we can improve on our structure which he now calls poor? It is rather unfortunate his man Avram Grant does not even stay in the country to watch our matches to know whether it is poor or not. How did [the agent] come by that statement?” Another salvo came from former Kotoko coach Isaac ‘Opeele’ Boateng, an avowed critic of Grant’s methods and style.“Avram Grant’s agent should shut up. We have quality in the league, so how do you come and tell us we don’t have quality in the league?” the outspoken coach told Asempa FM.“All the Ghanaian players in Europe he is scouting played in the local league before they went out there. Avram Grant is a lazy coach and his agent should shut up because if he keeps supporting Avram then he should also be known as a lazy man.”Also scandalized is the head of the Black Stars management committee, George Afriyie, who questions Rubie’s basis for putting the Ghana Premier league in disrepute on such a platform as the BBC.“I totally disagree with him on this one, how can he say there are no quality players in the Ghana league?” Grant has named a 24 man team to face Rwanda in an AFcon 2017 qualifier early in September.Click here to see the squadClick here to read: Editorial – Avram Grant, can you be serious?–Follow Benedict on Twitter: @KwesiBenedict.
