We feel that this layout will keep the website streamlined and senate-specific. Maintenance should be relatively easy, as the items which need to be most frequently updated are the items sent prior to each senate meeting. Duplication will be avoided as we provide links to things that are provided elsewhere on the Southeast site rather than reproducing them. While there was some interest indicated on the survey for faculty-specific newswire items and a faculty notables section, the committee ultimately decided that the amount of upkeep, the risk of a faculty member or department feeling neglected and the possibility of redundancy outweighed the interest in these items.
