New Student Senate Members Take Over Their Duties


The Dean of Students Office organized a meeting between the previous and the newly elected members of the Student Senate on Tuesday, 11 June 2019. The Dean of Students, Mr. Adnan Ramadan, Executive Vice President, Dr. Michael Sansur, and the Vice President for Finances, Mr. Youil Anastas, attended the meeting.

During the meeting, the new members took over their tasks as the role of each member was made clear in order to achieve the goals of the Senate.  

Dr. Sansur shared his remarks on the performance of the Student Senate members and what is expected of them. Mr. Ramdan addressed the new members and mentioned the importance of holding workshops and meetings for the conference members in general and student senate members specifically.

Members of the previous Student Senate also shared their experiences and challenges during the period they were in charge of the Senate.


Mohammed Abu Aker Continued Detention


Detainee Mohammad Abu Aker, student in the Social Sciences Department, was on hunger strike for five days last week according to his family who informed the Dean of Students Office. Mohammad was protesting his administrative detention for nearly seven months without any charges pressed against him. He suspended his strike following the ongoing negotiations between the prisoners' representatives and the Negev Prison administration on the administrative detentions. It is worth mentioning that Mohammad’s administrative detention was renewed for the second time a few weeks ago.

We pray that Mohammad will be released soon to resume his studies.
