The Bridges Project has been funded through grants since 1997, and last year was the first year they have asked for funding from the S&A Committee. They have grants pending and will not hear until later this year. The program has been successful and they are receiving more requests for mentors. The program builds relationships for CWU, encourages and motivates students, provides extra curriculum activities, and enhances career opportunities, and brings students to CWU.

The office is a member of the United State Student Associate (USSA), which provides many educational opportunities, and they are also active with the State legislative affairs. They will be participating in the Lobby Day training and lobbying State legislators. The past year they registered 1,100 students to vote and campaigned for getting students out to vote.

Publicity Center: Lola Gallagher reviewed the request for $175,712 for the Publicity Center. The biggest increase was in salary, wages and benefits. Ms. Gallagher was asked about raising printing costs. She has variable rates for different groups. She meets and discusses the project and costs with individuals, but she is concerned with raising prices and losing business.

For the good of the order:
  • Year End Reports: Jack Baker sent a memo to providers who have not turned in year-end reports and he shared the list of missing reports. Many took the memo seriously and reports were turned in immediately after receiving the memo.
  • Jack Baker notified the committee that he will be out of town at a meeting on January 28 and will not be able to attend the S&A meeting.
  • The schedule of base funding presentations was a draft and subject to change. The requestors, who have not turned in year-end reports, will be placed on the schedule; but when it comes time to vote on their requests, there may be a delay if year-end reports are not turned in.
