Listening to student voices… for real.
What is it? Westminster Ideas is an initiative carried out by the student body president that is aimed towards incentivizing student input on college life and college issues. It is set to promote student ideas. Westminster Ideas has a $3,000 budget, which allows it to be flexible and helpful for special initiatives. These funds are for student entrepreneurship and student initiatives. Led by the student body president, students will also receive direction and connections to help them succeed. Westminster Ideas is not geared only towards businesses though.
It is a tool for students to be able to talk to their representatives more freely. Ideally, students should feel free to come up to their representatives and talk about any issues they are experiencing or any ideas they have in mind; however, this isn’t always the case. Westminster Ideas is aimed at helping students understand they can find help through student government.
