Students will have more say in the next food services contract thanks to a new committee.
The committee will have an advisory role in receiving requests for proposals (RFP) submitted for the new dining services contract. The current food service contract with Chartwells expires in 2011.
Students will be able to sit in on Q & A sessions with the people who are coming to put in RFPs for the new food services, whether it’s Chartwells or the other businesses or student government, vice president John Lawless said. “The committee will provide more student voice, and I think the more student voice the better,” Lawless said.
The new committee will be made up of eight Residence Hall Association (RHA) members and chaired by student senate director of community relations Ali Titus. RHA acts as the governing body for campus residence halls. Committee members can voice student concerns and give weight to student opinions on different contract proposals.
