      Staci Sleigh-Layman explained that this policy was drafted due to the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) compliance guidelines. The policy states that requests for special housing accommodations due to a disability and the need for a service animal are carefully evaluated by the housing staff once the Center for Disability Services has all of the documentation needed regarding the disability. CDS will notify University Housing once all of the supporting documentation is provided. University Housing makes the formal decision regarding service animals in university housing and notifies the individual requesting the accommodation. Motion to endorse the policy in concept by Roy Savoian. Seconded by Bill Vertrees. The policy statement may be revised slightly. No further discussion. Motion carried. Presidential approval April 7, 2010.

No further discussion. Motion carried. Presidential approval April 7, 2010.

For the Good of the Order:

Libby Street distributed the CWU insert of the Daily Record Almanac.

John Swiney reported that the Welcome Center is up and running. Due to spring break season, there are many visits scheduled this week. Bill Vertrees reported that the digital sign for the Welcome Center has been approved and will be up soon. John added that spring enrollment numbers look good.

Wayne Quirk reported that the Athletic Department is sponsoring a blood drive today from 11:00-4:00.

Matt Cziske reported that the annual Admitted Student Open House - "Wildcat Day" is April 17.

President Gaudino reminded folks that the Grand Opening for the Welcome Center is April 22 at 4:00 PM. He also announced that the CWU Softball team is ranked nationally. With regard to news from Olympia, there is not much news yet. Tuesday is the last day of the special session. The best guess is that the legislature will do everything in their power to end on Tuesday. Our cuts could be anywhere from $1.5M - $7 or 8M.
