- Proposal from Scott Simonds for additional funding for the Wednesdays in the Lion's Den (WILD) series to keep up with increased performance fees. Requested: $10,000. Received: $10,000. Discussion: This is open to every student on campus. Less music and more game type performances will be scheduled per student preference.
- Proposal from Model United Nations (UN)/Brent Crawford for funding to attend the Princeton Model UN conference. This is a required event for LA296 students and a choice for the Model UN Club. Requested: $4,250. Received: $300/student x 10 students = $3000. Discussion: Precedent set on $300/student for trips; will discuss "required for students in the course" with the Director of Academic Affairs (DAA). Club says it will do two events in 2008 - one for high school students and one for college students which will allow the club to be self-sufficient in the future based on the registration fee income. Brent must rewrite/resubmit proposal form based on only the Princeton conference versus Princeton and New York City.
- Proposal from the Campus Diversity Committee/Ann Fetterman to rent the Human Race Machine for Unity Day/Week. The cost includes eleven-day rental, handouts, PBS documentary, and posters. Requested: $2,250. Received: $2,250. Discussion: The Diversity Committee will fund the other half; this event will be incorporated into classes as well as aid in the expansion of Unity Day into a week of activities.
- Tabled proposal from Jennifer Nesibtt for Women's History Month programming. Requested: $550. Received: $300 for student/speaker pizza dinner. Discussion: At the November meeting, there are too few members of the committee to adequately discuss the legitimacy of the request. Upon further review, $300 was given for student/speaker pizza dinner and the remainder of the proposal request was covered by Campus Diversity Committee and Liberal Arts Department funds.
