Student Activity Fee Meeting Minutes

December 14, 2007

Present: Sharon Christ, Matthew Dunlap, Andy Landis, Christopher Leverette,
Jess Olan, Camilla Rodriquez, and Joe Royer
Not present: Mark Brown, Angi Davis, Nick DeCampo, Sukhdeep Gill, and Lapiffany Shearin

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

Next meeting: Friday, January 25, 2008,12:00-1:00 p.m. , Community Room, Joe and Rosie Ruhl Student Community Center.

Deadline for proposals: January 18, 2008, in the Student Affairs Office.
