EPP, we have the house shirts made, going with Orange this year (Sober member of the house gets the shirt) and we are working on the tank top designs this year. Will want input on the design.

New discretionary funding requests, so will work on that and budget. CUIC: First off, the tailgate write up went out to all involved. Dan Coonan said we will be having more. larger ones.

Rob: It is very funny, but we need to accomplish something before we send this out. Really want this to catch on. Erin: made it funny so that people would be into watching it. Want to have a good impression on ASG, but we don't want to make it very serious and boring. We want to give news in a funny manner and want to have an example before it is shown. Have something finished in 2 weeks so we can see it. Consent Calendar
New Business ASG History Presentation by Briana Update on the Establishment date. We didn't know when we are established, but it is the class of 1892. Since 1912 they have been having Senate meetings at 7 on Thursday nights. University recognized them as a student organization, but had a presiding Jesuit. Check out what I looked through, super old documents in the archives. Kanishk: Jane Curry would be very interested. At the end of the year, all of our projects get put into the books and stored. Furnishing the SAC Rob: Students don't have a place to hang out on campus, no where for people to relax and hang out and put events there. From this, they either need to make this place for us exclusively or utilize the Bronco. There are just a few events here, such as by APB, but its not a location that is accessible to students. Its far and out of the way. Marisa: Decorations here...what happened to all of the stuff in the Bronco? There is supposedly a box upstairs that has the old Bronco gear. Winston: Benson was supposed to be a Student Union, but it has become full of offices. Do we want a place to have events or a place for students hang out? Rob: We were supposed to have this building as a student union space. Marisa: I'm confused that the original design of the Bronco was to have couches and places to hang out. I'll talk to Jane about that. There is a stage in the Bronco and they have not had ideas there. Stella: Put offices back in Benson and have upstairs the hangout. Rebecca: Central location means a lot, thats why we need the Bronco. Travis: Looking forward, they are building the townhouses across the street, so this might become the new central. Zach: people don't want to come here because there is nothing to do and there is no food, not because it is "far" Does CUIC want to take this on? 1 goal: events back in the Bronco. 2 goal: make this place more welcoming to students. Come to conclusion and pass a resolution, maybe in 2 weeks have that resolution made. Begin the school year two weeks earlier? then we have the 2 week tiem between Thanksgiving and Christmas to spend at home. it would be a 6 week vacation. Marisa: Have to look into the fact that many departments at school have events during those 2 weeks Julie: Good because it hard for far away students to go back and forth. Kanishk: Opportunities for abroad or service programs. Rebecca: A lot of schools have a "Jan Term" so we could propose that time as a internship, study abroad time. Zach: Want to get student feedback, not give our own opinions. Winston: Main opponent is going to come from the faculty...who have very structured summer plans. Rebecca: Most other schools are not on our schedule, look into those schedules. EVERYONE meet with their buddies this week and discuss it with them.
Stella: Can we make this into a forum? get student feedback? If we put together a proposal, that will help. Talk to buddies, get a better idea of it. Greek Life Talked about on the Student Affairs Committee. Discussion about the relationship. What do you think of the relationship now? Kanishk: A lot of colleges with the relationship have troubles. Eric: School doesn't recognize them now, but does put restrictions. Would be a plus for the philanthropy aspect. Fana: Hard to deal with philanthropy events and be not affiliated. No ability to even use school grounds, which makes it difficult. Rob: Lots of members of the admin are open to the idea and benefits it would provide. Marisa: If it is affiliated, would funding go to them? Don't like the idea of funding the Greek Life. Zach: Several levels to every organization, and there is a lot to gain on both sides. Greek: making sure all of the organizations go in right direction. School: bringing groups that will throw really great events and use resources well. Lindsay: 1. There would be a lot of issues with one or all being affiliated with campus. Sense of community is a huge part of the campus. Dynamic at large schools, identity defined by that. Winston: Organizations would be treated like any other organization. Sheer operation of Greek Life would have separate staff and resources. Monica: Awkwarrd when nobody can answer questions at Orientations and such when you cannot talk about it. Chris: Research and evaluate the policy. Look at the relationship and how we can work on that. Rebecca: While I enjoy the sorority life, I don't see how Greek life relates to the academic institution of the Greek organizations. Being affiliated would detract from what the University offers as a whole. Fana: You will pick a different battle with RLC offices, because that is supposed to promote the community. Would affiliation mean that the school has jurisdiction over how it is run? The hazing issue and certain freedoms they have. Sach: SCU doesn't have a lot of resources for students who want to be involved with organizations that don't "party." Used to have huge groups of students who would do activities on campus with each other. Campus culture is not like that anymore. If anyting should be brought to campus, there should be alternative events. Marisa: Need to do a lot of research on this issue. Locatelli came out with a document when the Greek Life got kicked off campus. Eric: Any hazing issues, it would be good if the school could stop it. The sense of a separate community is already here. Demand for fraternities that are focused on alternative activities. Lindsay: The way that the Greek system exists is good, its an optional thing that there is no pressure to do. We are a small institution that is focused on the community. Keep in mind what Santa Clara values in terms of community. We will forward you all the documentation. One-on-oneâ€™s Cancel meetings next week, catch up with Rob instead for 15 min.
Dinner next Wed at 6!! QoW and BeHeard! Moving school forward, not having a break. Open Discussion Lindsay: Business school classes are not in the school. Meeting next week?

Concern 2: Money for maintenance position, $900 per year for hourly wage job. Money wasn't necessary because the associate director does it so we want to reallocate that money to programming. New BLegit program and instead it was taken out, not reallocated. SAFC recommended 3,450 less. Minimum we ask is that those 2 positions are given back. We are going to keep the 2 positions. We will let you know by next week if we can do anything about this. Presentation by Melissa Reynen of Bon AppĂŠtit Melissa Reynen: The reason why I came today is to discuss Bon Apetit Fellow. Girl who just graduated from college. Outreach for topics on sustainability, food justice, farm workers rights. Vera Chang is our local BonApetit fellow who visits universities and colleges to present some of her research. Goes to actual farms, does some PR work, bring info back to universities. More in depth than marketing manager. She will be on campus on the 17th. Food and Agribusiness Institute and Dining Services will be hosting an event. Starting in the fall, worked with FAI to put on a series of talks. Gizdich Ranch, California Association of Family Farms, Carrots-ALBA (who trains up and coming farmers). Controversy surrounding food worker welfare, ties in with Vera's work. Next Tuesday the presentation is on Farm Worker's rights and how it applies to strawberries here. Asked me to share this information. Takeaway: student organizations want to address these topics so i can be a resource for that. Campus farms? We do actually have one, Bronco Urban Gardens, so we are leasing land down in Salinas, a graduate from the ALBA program . Working to get these products now on campus, now its being served at the Adobe Lodge. In the Fall we are going to have them produce for La Parrilla.

Just give me the reciept or have Robert fill out a petty cash form. Committee Reports motion for 2 minute recess: kanishk 2nd Matt SAC: Just hear from Maddie, so I want hear opinion on that. Kanishk: have a large number of paid positions, and they get quite a large budget anyways, so maybe they should give each position less. We don't want it changed so if there are any opposing opinions....Stella: They do a lot of work for their programs, United Hands does require a lot of manpower. If it is a volunteer organization, maybe they should be comfortable not having paid positions. Zach: But they did already have the position hired. If we do not allocate, they won't cut position still. Can't switch between stipends and programming. Look at what is best for student body. At the moment it seems that most want to keep SAFC as is. Other than that, we are approving the requests for money. Clubs we approved Spring Quarter are asking for money. Club registration due may 18th. All club heads should have gotten an email from Ted detailing everything. CUIC: First, Kurt Wagner is current editor in chief so we may write a commendation to him for being editor for 2 years.

Have not heard back more from Ed about post office. We will follow up on that. Zach and Moto met with Joe Sugg and made a recommendation for where to put it.
