Events: Olivia McCune, Natalia Gola, Nadine Tong
Campaigns: Rana Uygun, Dhruva Agarwal
Publicity: Paul Orsini-Rosenberg

Agenda:

Introduction, international committee last year focused more on events → suggestion, shift focus onto campaigning and raising awareness of issues, addressing issues make life easier for international students

Brainstorm issues to focus on + campaign for / ways in which we can address these issues
As for events, Manu in charge of these — last year, international festival events (chinese new year) low turnout because International Student Association runs inter-college events which are a lot bigger

So this year, focus on smaller get-togethers so internationals in cuths can meet each other, received messages requesting this
+ Arrange get-togethers during term break for people staying in Durham over christmas and easter

Aims/Goals:

Campaign for ~5 or more main issues that internationals face → figure out how college can address these
How we can make life easier for internationals → summer storage, information we can provide to prospective students etc.
Hold successful events for people in cuths to meet each other

Roles + Tasks
