Agenda topics

Presidents Update


Mario V and Dean W.

Discussion:  Dean Whittakers update included letting us know that President Upham is writing w a letter to us for all of our work on Career Services.  There was a brief discussion on the move of the career services office, but ultimately it cannot be stopped even though it is inconvenient for students.  However, it does give CSís more space, and it is important so CGU will demonstrate that.  Concerning IT Ė There is a new email server on the way that should help alleviate the bottleneck effect currently.


Mario reminds everyone that the social is tomorrow, elections are next Wednesday, and we have dinner with President Upham on Thursday. 

Conclusions:  None

Action items:  None

Discussion:  There were only 4 students who commented on the constitution, along with Dean Whitaker.  Those changes are some sentence restructuring, and some issues with representation, but we had already discussed that. 


The by-laws are then discussed, line by line and changes made on the document. 

It is ultimately decided that the constitution and by-laws will be posted online for all to see and comment on.  And we have a chance to all review the documents again before ratifying them at the Elections meeting.

New Clubs


CASE and E-Club

Discussion:  Marcie K.  Art club funding proposal.  Art dept CASE organization.  Purpose is to encourage students to produce and curate shows for their art.  It brings a lot of attention to the student and the school.  And creates community.  Today we were just establishing a club, not the sponsorship of exhibitions. 

Q:  Are non art student eligible?  A:  yes, but not eligible to show in specific exhibitions.  Q:  Are there Officers?  Regular meetings?  A:  At the start of academic year officers will be appointed/elected.  10 core members Ė 5 first years, 5 second years.  Itís a curatorial committee.  Meetings will be as needed.  More questions followed.  Itís brought up that it doesnít sound much different than a departmental organization, clarified that itís a direct benefit to art students, but brings community.  Non-departmental students arenít able to show their work in the Art dept because itís departmental policy and the dept owns gallery, but the department wonít fund these shows or this club.  Mario P motions to move $200 club events to new club funding.  Jen seconds.  Aye Ė 12; motion passed.  Mario V motioned, Mario P seconds to recognize them as a club and give them $200.  11 aye, 1 abstain; motion passed. 


Jeffrey B Ė E-Club funding proposal.  Jeff explains that this club is open to all students but itís called the ďDruckerĒ E-club b/c E-clubs have a requirement of 1 MBA student, and because of branding of the Drucker name.   Were looking for approval as a recognized club on campus.  Purpose is to bring students from all depts. Together to develop business plans.  Alumni as well to generate club funding.  Q:  how many students outside of Drucker are now members.  A:  2 out of 5.  Weíre looking for the $200, the biggest costs involved are going to be the speaker series and the club website.  Professional website b/c itís a knowledge bank, message board to generate ideas.  They have an alumnus who is a lawyer to help with legal issues.  Q: how much interest?  A: Iíve talked to probably 75 interested people, not just Drucker. 

Q:  What other depts. are interested?  A:  SBOS and SPE.  Linda B motions, Mario P seconds to reallocate funds club events to club funding $200  12 aye; motion passed.  Mario V motions to give $200, Linda B seconds, to give official status, and funding.  12 aye; motion passed.
