Jacki Johnson-Career Development Services:
Jacki Johnson updated the committee on the salary savings that was gained by sharing the career counselor at Lynnwood with Highline Community College. Jacki plans on using the salary savings to hire peer mentor/educators. The career counselor has done a great job and Jacki will probably change the position back to full-time because of the impact the new career counselor has had on the students.
Vincent Ruiz-Dolores Huerta event:
Vincent Ruiz wanted to thank the S&A committee for their help to fund Dolores Huerta’s visit. There were about 525 students in attendance, which included students from area high schools and YVCC and they were given a tour of the campus.
Town Hall Event—Jonathan Ingram, Psychology Club: The Psychology Club has an opportunity to bring a Town Hall event to Central’s campus. It is one of several sites picked across the United States to hold this event. The Psychology Club has already received several commitments for money to help with this event. They are requesting $1,100.00 to help with expenses for the facilitators. The Diversity Center is helping with promotion. It is anticipated 200 would attend this forum. Community members will be on the panel to discuss diverse issues. This request will be voted on at the next S&A meeting.
Discussion related to setting supplemental funding limit: The committee discussed several possibilities for the use of this year’s supplemental funds. A few of the suggestions: keep for rainy day funds, supplemental funds (current process); one-time funding (submit and review at one time); include one-time supplemental request with base budget request. A thought to set aside $200,000 for annual supplemental requests and an additional $200,000 can be designated for special one-time funding requests. It was suggested to poll the students to vote on which method they would support; and another suggestion was to look at denied requests to see if there was still interest in supplemental funding. It was decided to bring back ideas next week for further discussion on how to proceed with the supplemental funding.
The next meeting is Wednesday, October 29, 2008, at 5:30 p.m.
Two new supplemental requests will be on the agenda for next week’s meeting.
Adjourn: Scott Robinson moved to adjourn, Brent Weisel seconded. Motion carried.
The meeting adjourned at 6:45 p.m.
