MOTION: Logan Bahr made a motion to fund $1,000.00 in supplemental (flex) funding for the annual fashion showcase to be held on Saturday, May 22, at 7:00 p.m. in the Milo-Smith Tower Theater. Caitlin Morrison seconded. Motion carried.
Discussion: This is the second year they are coming before S&A to request funds to support the fashion show. This is a class project and students need to work within the budget they are given and a course fee may need to be added to support this project. They were informed that the fee for the theater has been reduced, but there are still costs with facilities department. The fashion show is exactly what S&A should be funding to support students in their endeavors.
MOTION: Logan Bahr made a motion to table this discussion. Caitlin Morrison seconded. Discussion tabled.
Approval of flex budget spending: Jack Baker clarified the items he presented last week regarding the utilization of some of the flex budget. It was decided to look at each item separately
Training for the CWU Counseling Center ($3,000.00): This will support training for two members of the CWU counseling staff regarding threat assessment best practices and the skill to perform the assessment.
MOTION: Wendy Williams made a motion to fund $3,000.00 from the flex budget for training two CWU Counseling staff in threat assessment best practices. Caitlin Morrison seconded. Motion carried.
The proposal for assistance ship for the Center for Excellence in Leadership is overseen by Jesse Nelson and involves retention of students. Different information from what was proposed last week.
Assistantship for a student to help the Student Funds Manager: This is not intended to replace the Student Funds Financial Manager only to help as a stop-gap measure for the S&A committee and providers for one year until the Student Funds Financial Manager is in place and up to speed.
MOTION: Logan Bahr made a motion to table the discussion on the three remaining proposals until the next meeting.
Logan would like to postpone discussion until the new member Aaron Lee has the information regarding the Writing and Math Center.
Wendy Williams would like to discuss and this will give the new member an idea of committee concerns and pertinent information. The state dollars have been removed from these Centers and they are approaching S&A to help cover the student wages. This will add to the base funding for the next three years. If these services go away or are diminished greatly, this will impact the students and their success to continue their studies. A vote was not taken and it will be brought back before the committee.
The meeting adjourned at 6:25 p.m.
