October 30th Bailey Community Council Meeting Minutes

Minutes from the Bailey Community Council Meeting led by Bailey Co-Directors Casey Frump and Will King on October 30, 2023.

Bailey Scholars Program



  1. Introduction -> Icebreaker 
  2. Conversation on graduate and faculty fellows returning consecutively.
    1. Curious to hear scholars' opinions (not voting today). 
    2. 2 years, to allow for one year to get your bearings, and one year to mentor new fellows.
    3. Also a concern of moving away from bonding with your fellows, as limiting to one year might disbar that. Harlow and Salo were brought up as great pictures of community. 
    4. 3 years as a sweet spot, to allow for cycling but bonding. Harry brought up the great point that we aren’t kicking these people out, they just can’t be fellows anymore. Nobody says that they need to leave.
