Student Union Board of Governors
Present: A. Clayton, R. Edison, W. Henderson, S. Kamani, T. Kiernan, S. Lamont, M. Moylan, D. Orloske, A. Perlova, D. Peterson, D. Ross, R. Schneeweiss, P. Sutera, S. Vial, D. Wall, C. West (Chair) Ms. West called the last meeting of the 1996-1997 academic year to order at 6:33 p.m. Ms. Clayton, chair of the House Committee, gave a report. It was proposed that one-half of a bulletin board in the North Hall be assigned for Hispanic community concerns. After some discussion concerning preserving general "posting" space, the motion was defeated. This action was not intended to be a repudiation of the request but, rather, a need to examine all bulletin board space in a greater context. This will be some of the work of the House Committee next year. MOTION (P. Sutera/M. Moylan) That one-half of bulletin board in the North Hall be assigned for Hispanic community concerns. Motion defeated. Mr. Henderson, chair of the Student Services Committee, reported on an attempt to have a meeting with DAKA. Mr. Henderson suggested that a monthly meeting be pre-arranged. He also reported on the successful commuter coffee series. Mr. Wall then gave the Budget Committee report. MOTION (D. Wall/A. Clayton ) That a Leadership Training Reserve account be established from the unused portion of the following accounts: Leadership Weekends - #994620, Leadership Recognition - #994630, Leadership Training Program - #994640, and Leadership Development Publications - #994650. Discussion: Mr. Schneeweiss explained that in previous years, the unused fee dollars identified for student development reverted to the Program Council Reserve.
