Details
The event is a culminating one for the campus. It recognizes the achievements of our student body - in academics and in leadership outside of the classroom. Our students work very hard through the year to learn the content presented to them in the classroom. Every campus has such an event every year and our campus has made great strides to be able to provide such a high quality event that everyone is pleased to be a part of.
Itemized Request
The event each year costs roughly between $5000 and
$6000. This is for food, awards, programs, and flowers.
Itemized Matching Funds
Roughly $3000 from the Student Affairs budget
Open to all Campus?
This has been advertised in the SSJ, on posters, and in
classrooms. We have a significant number of faculty and
staff who come out to support this event as well.
# of Students Benefit

This addresses the concepts of student recognition, and also maintaining our enrollment. It is only right to recognize students for their many achievements. This event is attended
Desired Outcomes
This event isn't aimed at specific learning outcomes. The outcomes are in student satisfaction, and also parent and family satisfaction. One faculty member has even noted that she wouldn't miss this event for the world!
Comments
In the previously submitted proposal I did not request the correct amount of $3500.00, therefore this proposal is for the additional $500.00

These handbook/planners are for each student to be aware of what the campus events/activities are planned daily. Also it is a great organizational tool for students to achieve their goals for their education at Penn State.
Itemized Request
1200 copies- 228 pages plus the cover.
Itemized Matching Funds

Open to all Campus?
These handbooks/planners sort of get the retention of students by staying focused and organized to their studies. Realistically though, this is about achieving success while on campus- in the classroom and outside of it too.
# of Students Benefit
Roughly 1000-all those who want one.
Enhance PSY
We ordered 500 handbooks this past year. The handbooks were taken by students immediately. Professors and some students were not able to take advantage of this because there were very few left.
Desired Outcomes
This is a background support. There are no outcomes other than increased student organization/satisfaction. This is a good tool that many students reference for their success. The students are eager and anticipating this handbook/planner to return.
Comments
The cost is slightly higher this year due to the fact that students wanted more space to write their daily appointments/deadlines. This has been accommodated. Thank you for your consideration.

National Nontraditional Student Appreciation Week is a time to recognize the efforts and commitment of our adult students at Penn State York. These funds will provide them with an incentive to enjoy the Pullo Center and Penn State Bookstore as a sign of our appreciation. The adult student reception will give attendees a chance to meet fellow students, talk with faculty and staff and have questions answered in a relaxed atmosphere.
Itemized Request
Pullo Center tickets to be drawn throughout fall and spring semesters from pool of adult students who complete an adult learner services survey.

12 tickets X $75 = $900

A $10 Penn State York Barnes and Nobles gift card gift card to each adult learner who completes an adult learner survey

250 (students) X $10 = $2,500

Food for drop-in reception/open house for adult students during National Nontraditional Student Recognition Week in November.

50 attendees X $5 = $250
Itemized Matching Funds
Students using a Pullo ticket will provide a match through purchase of additional tickets. Bookstore purchases will most likely exceed the $10 gift card value so students will match this amount.
Open to all Campus?
Adult students will be made aware of this through emails, signs on Campus and on the Calendar of Events.
# of Students Benefit
Estimate 1/2 of the approximately 300 adult students on campus and at The Lancaster Center.
Enhance PSY
This program will highlight the support services here at Penn State York through the Open House/Adult Student Reception that will be held during the week of Nov 4-8. There will be campus representatives from academic and administrative departments available to review services for adult learners.
Desired Outcomes
Students will be aware of scholarships for adults, veteran’s services, Alpha Sigm Lamda Honor Society for adults and be introduced to the people on campus who can meet their needs as adult learners. They will be recognized with bookstore gift cards which can be used by all adult students served by Penn State York on campus and at off-site locations in Lancaster and Turkey Hill Dairy. Students who complete the survey and submit for the ticket drawing may have the opportunity to attend a free program at the Pullo Center. The survey will provide the campus with valuable input from adult students regarding their needs and priorities.

When did this occur in the past? This is the first time CE is coordinating it. Dr. Christ used to do it for the adult students. This year is slightly different due to the fact that not every student will get a Pullo ticket and they are switching from food in the Lion's Den to a bookstore gift card.

What is this all about? This is for the national Adult Student Recognition week. We value our adult students and would like their feedback so that we can improve their experience.

When will the reception be? In the afternoon when evening students are more likely to come.

How has this been advertised? Not yet. They will use the email listserv and personal contacts.

Is this only for adult learners? Yes.

If a non-adult learner attended, could they fill out the survey? No. There is a broad PSU definition of what it means to be an adult learner.

This is not open to all of campus.
It is a lot of money.
I don't like just giving away gift cards and tickets like this.
There are other ways to appreciate and recognize our non-traditional students.
Is there a way to arrange an event for all students with a focus on adult students?

The board is denying this proposal and recommending that this idea be reworked and an alternate proposal be submitted. It is a good idea, but too expensive and too exclusive. SGA might be a good place to seek partnership for this idea - sga@yk.psu.edu..

This request is to fund a part time Career Counselor/Adviser in the Advising and Career Development (ACD) office. This would be a Master's level, professional, who would counsel students on exploration and choice of major and career plans and goals, helping students make the connection between major and career. The Career Counselor/Adviser would also assist with programming and career events for all students.

Per the SAF Handbook, pages 13 - 14:
"SELECTED SUPPORT SERVICES
Selected positions in student services may be funded. However, some campuses lack some of the basic services that are readily available at University Park. While the Fee Implementation Committee understood that it is the responsibility of the University to provide staffing and student services at all locations, they were willing to allow the hiring of staff on wages to provide services that were lacking on their campus. Campuses may plan to use funds to enhance services where student need is evident. The fee cannot be used to replace general funds if the service is already in place. All positions must be on a wage basis, and student staff is preferable in areas other than where a professional is indicated. Some areas eligible for enhancement are:
Recreational athletics,Career services, Childcare services, Health services, Personal counseling, and Student activities."

SAF funds have been approved to pay a CAPS professional and this request is of similar nature.
Itemized Request
$18 per hour, wage payroll
Fall and Spring semesters - 20 hours per week for 36 weeks= $12,960
Summer semester - 15 hours per week for 12 weeks = 3,240

Total = $16,200
Itemized Matching Funds
Open to all Campus?
Career services for students will be advertised to all students starting at New Student Orientation - Advising Component and throughout the student's educational experience via the student listserv, Facebook, Twitter and print. This will also be included in the Advising and Career Development office's online Career Bulletin, which goes out to all students.
# of Students Benefit
the entire student population, 1200 +
Enhance PSY
*The number 1 reason chosen by new first year students at York campus, for attending Penn State is "A Penn State degree is highly regarded by employers." More than half of all entering first year students at York campus indicate that they are either slightly uncertain, 50-50 uncertain or completely uncertain about their major preference.
* Data compiled from the Fall 2012 Educational Planning Survey

Students attend college with the hope of becoming gainfully employed upon graduation and/or continuing onto graduate or professional school. Most are uncertain about what they want to major in and have little information or understanding of the 160 + Penn State majors or the thousands of occupations available. Adding a much needed career counselor/adviser to the ACD staff will enhance career services for students, helping them learn about their options and how to make good decisions in regard to major and career choices. This may be a recruitment tool since students state that they're attending college to prepare for a career and will need assistance doing this. They are looking for a college campus where career services are readily accessible. Students who learn how to be good decision makers and set realistic and reachable academic and career goals will have more reason to stay, so retention may also be positively impacted.
Desired Outcomes
Through interactions with a career counselor/adviser, students will be guided to make well-informed educational plans and create the most meaningful educations for themselves by using Penn State's many resources. Systematic decision-making tools, accurate and timely information, individual attention, and referrals when appropriate will be provided.
Students will be encouraged to meet their academic potentials through well-informed educational planning, as well as through meaningful experiences such as internships, job shadowing and information interviews. Workshops will be offered by the career counselor/adviser covering topics such as career planning, self assessment and job search, along with opportunities for mock interviews.
Comments
There is an on-going strain on the ADC office to provide career and advising services, due to increased demand by students and alum. New campus pilot internship programs, increased outreach to employers and faculty requests for classroom presentations and mock interviews, decrease the time that our current staff can devote to individual career planning activities for all students. The career counselor/adviser will be able to work one-on-one and in small groups with all students, introducing them to resources such as MyPlan and Nittany Lion Career Network, and helping students understand the connection between majors and careers.

This career counselor/adviser will be located in the Advising and Career Development office with supervision and support of the ACD staff - Jane Emery, Director, Andrew Caldwell, Career Services Coordinator and Cathy Sheaffer, Administrative Support Assistant.

The purpose of these funds is to cover the cost of food that would have been provided for the student that attend the 6th National Dominican Student Conference at Brown University is Providence Rhode Island. Sadly, with our late registration we were not allowed to participate in the meals provided, so we had to go off campus for our meals. I was not aware of this bump in the road, and therefore did not include this cost in my original SAF request. The conference was absolutely amazing and I know, I personally, took so much away from it. It is imperative that the students are refunded. They did not anticipate these costs and I would like for them to be refunded as much as possibly can.
Event Purpose
It gave the students the opportunity to network with politicians from Rhode Island, staff, students, and professor from Brown University, as well as professionals from across the nation. As well, their outlook and view on the Latino community was expanded and heightened.

Details
Five of the students in ENGL 221 will present a video of The Second Shepherds' Play, which is a late medieval nativity play. This project is for a grade for all of the students, and fulfills the Honors requirement for one of them. I wish to provide my 16 students and any attendees a sweet and holiday-oriented snack, which is what the sole use of the funding I'm requesting.
Event Purpose
This video will provide members of our community perhaps their first exposure to medieval literature. It will also be a break, but an academic one, from the otherwise grueling last week of classes. Most important, students will have the opportunity for students to demonstrate their learning outside of the classroom and to wider audience--the goal of learning should not always be the grade.
Itemized Request
I have a quote from the Lion's Den that I will submit to Cynthia Jones. It will cost $4.00/person to provide sugar cookies, chocolate chip cookies, peppermint brownies,and coffee, hot cider, and water. The room holds a maximum of 40 people; I have therefore budgeted for 35 people, or about twice the number of students in the class.
Itemized Matching Funds
None available.
Open to all Campus?
I have already sent an invitation to all faculty and staff and ask that they extend it to students. I'll ask to have it included in the Stall Seat Journal and whatever e-mails to students that seem appropriate.

Two sections of ENGL 15 will present their group video projects addressing specific topics related to How To Succeed in Your First Semester at Penn State York. I wish to provide my 35 students and any attendees breakfast, which is what the sole use of the funding I'm requesting.
Event Purpose
These videos will be addressed to next year's incoming students, both regular- and dual-enrolled, and in highlighting problems and solutions that students face, could help retain students who might otherwise fall through the cracks.
Itemized Request
I have a quote from the Lion's Den; I'm not sure how to submit it. It will cost $4.25/person to provide bagels with cream cheese and butter, bananas and clementines, yogurt, and coffee, tea, and water. Given the earliness of this event, I have budgeted for 45 people, or 10 people outside the members of my class.

Phi-lion-thropy
Donation of time, talent, and other resources, by the most awesome students in the world!

Support given to help Penn State York become even greater!

Phi-lion-thropy is philanthropy at its finest: students helping students. It spotlights that even small gifts from many can have a large impact for current students. The first initiative includes giving our students golden lion banks with a first preference for freshman and then opening it up to upper classman. By putting spare change in this bank throughout the year, it is our students chance to learn about the impact they can have at Penn State York. Besides the satisfaction of supporting Penn State, students who participate in the campaign at any level (yes, even a penny) will become eligible to receive the funds collected throughout the year. It doesn't matter how much you give, just that you participate at all! Phi-lion-thrapists will be helping to fund scholarships and book scholarships at the bookstore that will be awarded to Penn State York students.

Activities throughout the year will be orchestrated to collect donations. One event is our George Washington Birthday Bash (to be held on February 21 the day after President's Day and the day before George's real birthday) where students will bring a George Washington (a dollar bill) to the event, during the common lunch hour on campus, and after we collect all the George's, one or two of the student participants will receive a book scholarship based on the amounts collected at the bash - an immediate and direct result of their participation!

We all know that going to college is expensive, but the fact is that tuition only covers 34% of Penn State's annual budget. The rest comes from the state government, research grants, and generous donors who want to support the University. Nearly 80,000 alumni make gifts, big and small, to Penn State every year to support scholarships, campus facilities, student programs, and thousands of other areas that make our current students college experiences possible. Without this support, the University would be drastically different and would either have to cut programs and majors, or raise tuition even more. Our phi-lion-thropists don't have to give much, but giving at all shows that they care about Penn State and want to support the University and students like themselves.

There is a recognition group, the Golden Lion Society for Penn State alumni, who demonstrate extraordinary loyalty to Penn State by giving to the University for at least four years in a row or every year since graduation. Phi-lion-thropy is a new student initiative to encourage Penn State York students to start and continue to demonstrate a similar habit of supporting Penn State York during their tenure as students. Participation, and in future years - consistency, is what's important, not the size of the gift!

We ask the student activities committee to consider underwriting this new initiative at Penn State York,
Approximate costs for the sponsorship:
$2095: $770.00 for 325 banks, $500.00 for catering expenses for events, $325 for phi-lion-thropy pins for participants
