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.  The principle being  that development money should go to 
student development, and program money should go to event creation.

Motion passed (10 approved, 0 against, 1 abstained)     (SUBOG 97-11)

	MOTION (D. Wall/M. Moylan)  That $1,000 be transferred after July 
	1, 1997, from PC Reserve  #994100, to Summer Program  #994610.  Intent is 
	to produce annual summer programs.

Motion passed (8 approved, 2 against, 2 abstained)      (SUBOG 97-12)

	Activities/Leadership Development (SA/LD) budget as presented:

Mr. Wall, Mr. Schneeweiss, and Ms. Kiernan (president of Program Council)

used to advertise concerts.

Ms. Kiernan than gave the Program Council report.  She highlighted the 
successes of Spring Week including the Casino Night.  She thanked the 
Student Government Association for their generosity in helping fund this 
week.  The final Diversity Grants of the year were also given out in April 
to fund various events.

Ms. West then opened the floor to general discussion.  Mr. Orloske 
announced that an architectural firm had been chosen to design the building 
expansion.  Griener Associates in partnership with Hardy Holzman Pfeiffer 
Associates of New York have done other student unions and come highly
