Dr. Philip Burlingame, the Associate Vice President of Student Affairs at Penn State, has requested that each campus host a discussion to seek feedback about the self-study document that is being prepared for the upcoming Middle States accreditation visit.

He has requested that we consider providing food to encourage attendance, take photos, and also respond to him with student feedback.

Posters will be hung across campus, and SGA is cancelling their meeting so that this discussion can occur. As such, it is expected that students will spread news of this discussion to their friends.
# of Students Benefit
All, but specifically those who attend. I presume we will draw at least 20 students.
Enhance PSY
In addition to this being a request of all campuses by a well-respected member of the administration at University Park, this discussion is indeed the essence of student involvement; we want to share a university-wide process that represents the student experience, and get student feedback.
Desired Outcomes
Students will be able to articulate the process of accreditation for institutions of higher education.
Students will be able to identify main themes of the self-study document.
Students will be know more about how Penn State works.

Details
The Veteran's Day luncheon is an annual event that is open to all students, faculty and staff, both veteran and non-veteran. This year we would like to decorate the room in a patriotic fashion in remembrance of all those who gave a little, and especially for those who gave it all. The non-formal setting will give all who attend the chance to mingle, share experiences and stories.

As president of the SVA I want to send the message that the SVA is not exclusively for veterans, and our student veterans are students who have taken the path less traveled to arrive at the same place as traditional students. This event allows for that to happen.
Itemized Request
Catering- 70 guest @ $10 per person=$700
decorations- Approximately $300
Itemized Matching Funds

Enhance PSY
The event will increase the awareness of our diverse students and faulty, veteran and civilian. With the word of mouth generated by the way that we treat our veterans and special events that we hold for them will increase enrollment of veterans at Penn State York. By honoring veterans on Veterans Day we will be doing a community service as well showing our veterans that we care. A lunch in honor of those who sacrificed so much no way pays the debt to which they are owed, but it is a start.
Desired Outcomes
People that attend the event will learn a lot. Non-veterans will learn that our student veterans are normal people who have seen extraordinary things. Veterans will learn that they do have support here on campus and that it comes in both veteran and non-veteran form. This type of comradery strengthens the Penn State Community.
Comments
In past events I had the chance to meet my fellow veterans who had different majors, people that I would never had the chance to get to know. This is the spirit of the event.
