Interfaith Caucus, club updates, Among Us: DSG Senate holds a short first meeting of 2021



The Duke Student Government Senate assembled for a short meeting Wednesday to discuss the new semester's logistics, hear about a new caucus for members of religious life groups and play the online game Among Us.

At the meeting, the Senate heard from members about upcoming projects and voted on internal caucus nominees. 

Senators heard from sophomore senator Hana Hendi about the Interfaith Caucus, which, according to a petition, "gather[s] representatives from Religious Life groups across Duke's campus to sponsor an interactive religious community and promote interreligious dialogue." 

The majority of the Senate voted to confirm the caucus, with Hendi as the caucus's chair. The Senate also confirmed the majority of the caucus's nominated representatives, with two nominees awaiting confirmation. 

The Senate heard from sophomore Drew Flanagan, chair of the Student Organization Finance Committee, about the Arnold Air Society, a new club designed to offer services and inclusive space for officers of the United States Air Force. Flanagan said that he plans to return to the Senate to update members about club statistics from the fall semester.

During the last minutes of the meeting, Senate members participated in an Among Us game to build community and foster connection virtually.
