Supplemental Requests for Funding:
Jazz Band – Chris Bruya: The CWU Jazz Band has been invited to the Monterey Jazz Festival-only one of six college jazz bands selected to attend. The Jazz Band is requesting $2,675.00 from the S&A Committee to support this endeavor.
Senate for Student Academic Affairs – Mike Bogatay: Mike Bogatay presented a request to create and fund the Associated Students of Central Washington (ASCWU) Senate for Student Academic Affairs. According to the letter to the S&A Committee from Daniele Howard: “The Senate for Student Academic Affairs will be the primary means by which students collectively share in the academic governance of Central Washington University (CWU) by providing student voices towards the university’s academic environment. The Senate will act on behalf of the university’s associated student body with respect to all academic matters and issues related to the intellectual mission of the university.” She goes on to state, “As a component of this new organization, we come before you to develop the funding for experiential learning projects and operating expenses. Spring 2008 will be the building phase of the Senate for which we are requesting $5,000 for experiential learning requests. For the 2008-2009 year we are requesting $65,000 for full operating costs.” There were many questions regarding this proposal. In the discussion that followed, it was suggested Danielle Howard and her committee relook at the funding request and the possibility of bringing back two proposals to the committee--one establishing the Senate for Student Academic Affairs and another for the experiential learning funding request. In addition, it would be beneficial to show specific examples on how the funds would be distributed.
S&A GUIDELINES AND PROCEDURES REVIEW:
Review was started on the revisions to the whole document. It was tabled until next week because of other commitments of the students and the lateness of the hour.
Schedule of Next Meeting:
The next meeting is Wednesday, February 27, at 5:30. S&A Fund Recipients will be invited to attend S&A meetings in the next two weeks for an explanation on the proposed 4-year base funding models and there will be a question and answer period.
For the good of the order:
Bob Hood made a motion to adjourn the meeting. Wendy Williams seconded. Motion carried. (All in favor)
The meeting adjourned at 7:00 p.m.
