Ms. Banks, Chairperson, called the meeting to order at 1:03 p.m.

The first order of business was a report from the Budget Committee.  Mr. Stubbs, Budget Committee Chair, said he met with Program Council as they developed their budget for 2002-2003.  He called on Jason W. Smith, PC Treasurer, to make the PC budget request.  The budget was outlined.  The PC requests $144,000 in Student Activities fees.  This is the same amount requested as in 2001-2002.  A new feature of the budget is $400 for each committee for team building activities.  It is hoped this will reflect in establishing even stronger committees.

            MOTION (T. Stubbs/F. Mendoza) To accept the Program Council Budget for 2002-2003 by allocating $144,000.

            Motion passed  (10 Yes, 0 No, 0 Abstained)             (SUBOG 2002-03)


Ms. Pocevic then gave the House Committee report.  She reported on the process the House Committee went through to recommend the assignment of space to two student organizations in the Student Center for 2002-2003. 

            MOTION (S. Pocevic/B. Bruntil) To assign office space in the Student Center to PRIDE and the Black Student Union on a permanent basis.


            A lengthy discussion took place concerning the need to have the Inter-Residence Council in the Student Center along with the Student Government Association, and Program Council.  The merits of various assignments were explored.

                Motion passed  (7 Yes, 2 No, 1 Abstained)             (SUBOG 2002-04)


There was no report from the Student Services Committee.

Mr. Mendoza, Program Council Secretary, gave the Program Council report in the absence of Ms. Foglia.  He reviewed the events of March and early April as submitted by all the Program Council coordinators.  The Climax Committee sponsored the 16th Annual British (Cambridge Union Society) Debates; Cinema Central – Oceans 11 (195 people in attendance); and, Community Adventures – a trip to see William Shakespeare’s “The Winter’s Tale.”  Upcoming is Spring Week (whose theme is “Bada Bing”), a concert, massage therapy, a day trip to Boston, and a Shakespeare Film Festival.

            MOTION (F. Mendoza/M. Rosa) To allocate $30,000 from the PC Reserve (Account #PGC901) to PC Climax Committee (Account #PGC908).


            It was explained that this was for the Spring Week concert.

            Motion passed  (10 Yes, 0 No, 0 Abstained)             (SUBOG 2002-05)


Ms. Banks then called on Ms. Rosa, Mosaic Center Committee Chair, to give her report.  Ms. Rosa outlined the series and updated the Board on how the events have been received.  She noted the Multi-Ethnic Eating Tour of New York was postponed until fall 2002.

Mr. Orloske gave an update on the Student Center Construction.  Things are now at that point that he feels confident we will be moving in at the end of May.  Sometime in August, the doors will open (A Quiet Opening) and in September the Grand Opening.

Ms. Banks then called on Mr. Schneeweiss and Ms. Rosa to present the constitutional amendments for consideration in reference to the Mosaic Center Committee.  Mr. Schneeweiss explained the process for adopting constitutional amendments.  He noted that the necessary number of Board members were present, and the Board had the required time for discussion and consideration of the amendments.

            MOTION (P. Roberts/T. Stubbs) To re-number the SUBOG Constitution so that the Mosaic Center Committee amendments follow Program Council.  (attached)

            Motion passed  (10 Yes, 0 No, 0 Abstained)             (SUBOG 2002-07)

Ms. Banks announced that in May, the SUBOG would elect its 2002-2003 Chair.
