Supplemental Requests for Funding:
Human Rights Awareness Tour – Stephanie Oberlander presented the request for funds ($25,800) for a five-day Human Rights Awareness Tour for early November 2008. The funding request includes the tour package ($12,000): Fair Trade Coffee Night, No Sweat Fashion show, Awareness Festival, speaker series, film series and art exhibit. Additional programming expenses ($13,800): John Dau speaker presentation, Human Rights Maze and advertising and publicity costs. Several questions were asked regarding utilization of the maze at the other centers and the usefulness of the maze after this week. Stephanie has approached other organizations for their commitment to this project and they are committed, although at this point, their budgets and projects are set for the coming year. This proposal will be brought before the S&A Committee next week for consideration of the funding request.
Westside Career Counseling Position – Jackie Johnson updated the Committee on the Westside Career Counseling Position. The new position is paid half by S&A funds and half by Highline Community College on a cooperative education program. The goal is to target the needs of CWU Westside students. It was suggested that funding for the Westside career counseling position should be the same as on the main campus and the S&A funds could go for programs like job fairs. Jackie is currently looking at other funding options for this position, but wanted the S&A Committee to know what a valuable service is being provided to the students on the Westside campuses.
