Publicity Center canceled their presentation tonight.
Next week the program review will be Club Senate giving their in-depth review presentation.
Discussion with Cynthia Mitchell re: Observer services and possible collaboration efforts with S&A Committee.
The Observer is a student run newspaper and needs to be. There is a Media Board that oversees the content of the Observer. There is a staff of 30-35 and a 2-credit class is offered, although the students put in an enormous amount of time each week in order to produce a quality product. There was a discussion on how the Observer and the S&A Committee could work together. Since it is a student run newspaper, it is independent. The students decide what materials are included in the newspaper. Cynthia would take the information back to the students and would share what was discussed tonight. She would suggest that a reporter be in attendance at the S&A meetings and possible coverage of articles regarding “news worthy” S&A information—also S&A can contact the news editor with suggested articles. Cynthia did suggest contacting PRSSA who takes on clients to discuss marketing and student surveys.
It was suggested that the S&A website needs work.
Supplemental Requests: none
Green Dot facilitator training—SAFE and the Wellness Center—Nikki Newsome and Andrea Easlick: The funding request is for $14,385 to bring Dorothy Edwards, the creator of the Green Dot Program to Central Washington University to conduct her 4-day “Train the Facilitator” training May 10-13, 2010. The Green Dot Program is a violence prevention program. Discussion: It was felt that this is an amazing training and it is important to keep the momentum going. It is hoped that the program will train more facilitators who in turn will train more students who will help to change the behavior and help prevent violence. This proposal will train facilitators, but will not train additional trainers. The proposed cost is very low for the non-Central participants, although bringing the training to Central will put Central in a position of leadership in the region. There is some confusion on the final funding request minus potential revenue.
MOTION: Chris Goehner made a motion to wait to vote on the Green Dot training. He suggested having Nikki Newsome and Andrea Easlick bring a proposal to send facilitators to another area where trainings are being conducted (cost to send to training and estimated cost per student). Logan Bahr seconded. Motion carried with 1 abstention.
Chris Goehner moved to adjourn, Kiley Baker seconded. Motion carried. The meeting adjourned at 6:50 p.m.
