The new members of the IFSP Superior Council (Consup (Superior Council)) took over this Tuesday, 14th. Counselors from the student, teaching and administrative technicians segment were elected on April 10 and will serve from 2019 to 2021. The IFSP rector, Eduardo Antonio Modena, and attorney Marcelo Cavaletti de Souza Cruz made a presentation by the Consup (Superior Council), talking about their duties, structure and competencies.
Making the IFSP increasingly democratic, inclusive and participatory was the main desire expressed by the new members of Consup (Superior Council). Counselors Denise Santana, a student in the Higher Technology in Public Management course at Campus Pirituba and Sara Beatriz, a student in the Mechatronics Integrated Technician course at Campus Catanduva, said that they intend to be the voice of the students, as well as hoping to share information with colleagues. on important matters that are being discussed in the board.
Professor Whisner Fraga Mamede will exercise his second term as a member of Consup (Superior Council). He had already represented the teaching segment in 2012, but he had to leave to participate in the management. Elected again, Whisner said that one of his biggest commitments as a councilor is to review the documents that deal with democratization and participation in all instances of the institution, to further decentralize decisions and expand the participation of all.
Educator Caroline Jango was sworn in as representative of the administrative technical staff for her first term. She considers that the fact of being chosen by her peers is a reflection of her work while she was at the Dean of Extension (PRX), working in community development, and at the Center for Afro-Brazilian and Indigenous Studies (Neabi), where she was one of the founders. The counselor affirmed that the Consup (Superior Council) is the most important deliberative instance of the IFSP, where the educational policy is built and ratified and is the ideal place to defend and seek the consolidation of affirmative actions that make the IFSP a more diverse and inclusive.
