2. Past year's In the past year, the Latino Student Union has had weekly programs, organized an annual banquet, recognized academic accomplishments and has had various events enlightening students about the Latin culture. Problems that this organization has faced have included the false knowledge of Latin culture and stereotypical idealizations of Latin people. Our past year's goal was to let our presence known on campus and to educate students on the different cultures around the world that make up a whole people. The Latino Student Union does not believe in segregation, rather the desegregation through proper knowledge of, plainly put, people that are different. -We hm awmplished -our goals with meetings such as "Make your Flag" where members construct their own flags whether it be from their country or a flag that represents who they are as individuals. In the end of the program, students talk about what their flag means to them sharing a part of them as well as educating those present. Keynote speakers have spoken to students at the Latino Studea Union Annual Dinner and at the ALANA conference educating students-oyhow toac-hie~~ty through understanding of other cultures. We also deem it necessary to recognize students for their academic accomplishments as well as their accomplishments outside of the classroom. We have these events and recognitions in efforts to educate students on different cultures and to promote unity on the SUNY Oiwego campus. __ _-The following is a tentative schedule of the pa2t year as well as the spri_ng 2004 semester: .i -.

The first step in the Impeachment Process involves any member of the Student Association going around campus to have a petition signed by thirty percent (30%) of the total number of voters from the previous all campus election (IE: if there were 1000 students who voted in the last all campus election, then you would need to get 300 students to sign the petition). There are certain rules that must be adhered to when it comes to the petition. If the petition does not appear exactly as seen in appendix 1 of the Impeachment Law, then those pages will not be allowed to be counted towards the 30% that is needed to go forward with the impeachment proceedings. If the Student Association Supreme Court Clerk deems a name illegible, then that name will be deemed ineligible to count towards the 30% necessary to continue with the impeachment proceedings. If you have any questions about the process and how it will be conducted after you turn in the petition, feel free to ask the Student Association Vice President for a copy of that law. Sincerely, The Student Association Executive Board, Senators and Supreme Court Justices

Good evening everyone! I want to start by saying how truly excited I am to work with you all for the remainder of the semester and also for those of you returning in the fall. To those of you leaving in May, well let's get that far first. According to the Financial Policy I have until the next Senate meeting to give you my line changes within my budget. By then I will have exactly what I plan on changing. I can tell you now that it is mainly a few word changes under the executive and I am also looking at the Ontarian and its breakup. According to the Student Association Constitution I am required to give my legislative program on the first meeting in office. The dilemma I see with doing just this is that I am not totally certain what the definition of the legislative program is. During the impeachment trial last week it was made clear to me that the impeachment committee interpreted it to be the writing and planning of laws. To me, this seems like an issue that we need to discuss. It is my belief that there should be a separation of powers, why would an executive have to have a legislative program? For the sake of trying to maintain a collaborative mindset with the Senate, this is what I wish to propose. There are !loany goals that I wish to accomplish as Student Association President, and some of them will require the support of the Senate and may require legislation to do so. My term consists of many executive ideas that at some point may require the passage of a bill. One of the very important pieces that face the Student Association is the deficit for the 2003-2004 fiscal year. One of my goals is to collaborate with the finance committee to reduce the deficit in way that looks at alternative solutions and work with senate to devise legislation to makes that happen. Going into next year I want to review the current financial policy. Currently I feel that organizations may require a little more guidance in their budget proposals and their year to year spending. I would also like to look at the set up of the tiered system To me xnany questions arise and I feel that there are improvements that could be made. The results of this review will more than likely result in my presentation of legislation that will implement change. I feel that because the Student Association and its clubs and organizations that it funds are made up of students, we should accept the fact that we do make mistakes and we are here to learn fiom those mistakes. Currently the financial policy states that organizations may be affected financially based on whether they meet their deadlines. I would like to exam the effectveness of the change in tier status and the decrease in financial fUnding The effectiveness of the incoming president and vice president can be hindered based on lack of assistance fiom the outgoing positions, I plan to propose legislation that requires the outgoing president and vice president to work with the incoming positions for a period of time Over the summer I plan to review the constitution to search for parts that need Clarification and in the fall submit changes to the constitution. Some areas include, the Legislative program Impeachment and election law

complaints by art students. They want oversized lockers that could fit a portfolio. Parking on campus is still bad. I sit on the Parking Committee and the biggest problem is that faculty see no students on the committee. I want to prove to them that parking is still a problem. I want to have a petition to have everyone sign it saying they are paying too much. The web-site is having technical difficulties. I want to get a reliable source. I want more information on it; off-campus housing, parking etc. At orientation I want to tell incoming freshmen about Senate and the campus.

Kristin Beck, Student Association Vice President: Suggests to keep the work that the Policy and Procedure Committees have done on the Constitution and wait until next semester to vote on it. Senator Hershkowitz: I do not agree. Greg Lawson: Think of how confusing it would be to have students voting twice on the same thing. The outcome might not be as great. It might be additional work for Senate. a Vice President Beck: I understand a lot of changes have been made. We can retain work that is done and wait until fall. It would make the most sense. Senator Brazee: Can you guarantee that the changes we drafted will be used? a Vice President Beck: I can't guarantee anything. a Greg Lawson: You can refer to bylaws and make a note of it for the referenda. a Vice President Beck: Be prepared for next week's budget meeting. Last year it took twenty-nine minutes but the year before it went until 1 :00 A.M. I encourage you all to be ready so it won't be long. We need to be out of here by 9:00 P.M. If not take recess and go to the Union. Senator Bacalles sent in his resignation. I would like to open the floor for nominations of Involvement Committee Chair. Senator Robinson: I nominate Senator McCabe. Senator Nolan second. Senator McCabe: I have some ideas and would be glad to have a meeting after Senate. Justin Barbur: Do you have any ideas for at large senators? Senator McCabe: Yes I do. Vote (1 4-0-0)Motion passes.

Dessima Niles, Director of Finance: The Social Justice Club speaker has changed. The accountant couldn't be here, so Dessima gave a presentation about the Fund Balance and our deficit. See attached. A discussion and answer followed. VII. Senator Issues Forum Senator Robinson: We respectfully disagree with the Vice President about waiting to approve changes to the Constitution. I've been asked if Sue Weber, the Associate Dean of Education, could come to the April 27th meeting. She would like to discuss academic goals and get our perspectives. It would be an hour presentation including discussion. Senator Hershkowitz: I agree with Senator Robinson. I think we should pass the Constitution bill so we can have more Senators at large. I know many people who want to take advantage of this new system. Senator McCabe: Just out of courtesy I will be late next week. Senator Brazee: For our new Director of Academic Affairs, I am putting together a binder. I am not returning next year. The first thing Vice President Beck should do is invite the Provost to Senate and talk to her about our concerns. Get to know who she is, take an active interest in her job. Mr. Westfall: Senator Robinson there is options for other companies for the online voting system. There's a lot of work to be done. We need to have enough time. Senator Hershkowitz: I think we'll have enough time. So what if they vote twice. They are six months apart. VIII. Committee Reports Policy: Senator Robinson: No meeting this week. Thanks everyone for responding to the GPA question. The President and Vice President need to maintain a 2.5 GPA. I'll be changing it to that. Procedure: Senator Brazee: I went over the removal of committee chairs next week I will be making a list for next semester. Vice President Beck: Open floor for nominations for procedure committee members. Senator Hershkowitz: I nominate Senator Nolan. Senator Robinson second. Motion passes. Finance: Senator Hershkowitz: Any senators come to the meeting Thursday if you have any concerns 5-6 P.M. Involvement: Senator McCabe: Talk after this meeting. Health and Safety: Senator Nichols: not present. Elections: Senator Robinson: I would like to have postings about openings before we leave for break. I do agree we should have the Constitution voted on in the fall. CCRT: Senator Lyon: Only a few RSVPs from organizations meeting at the Senate meeting. May 6~ for the softball is up in the air. Food thing for students at 4:OOP.M. and at 5:00 P.M. the game will start for employees who don't get out of work until then.

PAGE 11

IX. X. XI. Senator Robinson: Food at 4:00 P.M. and eat when you get there. Senator Lyon: There will no lights at the game. I will get a resolution up for the Mayor about annual softball for every Spring and annual bowling for Fall. Special Orders 1. SLE.39.53 Purchase Order Suspension Authorization Senator Brazee: She already has this ability. We are giving her senators support so we can fix the deficit problem. This is to make sure nobody spends money that we might decrease their budget. President Sutherland: This should be a resolution, not a bill. I could also write an executive order. a Dr. Scharfenberger: I suggest you take the executive order if it is easier. He will take the shots, if you'd rather do the bill because it's cleaner for you that's fine. Senator Hershkowitz: The intent is to cover our butts for a week for some options. I think it can go both ways. Senator Brazee: The bill is here, I think this is the easiest way to go. President Sutherland: I thought it would take a little heat off of you. Senator Robinson: It doesn't put heat on one side of government because she does have the authorization to sign it. It gives us the time we need. Senator McCabe: Motion to vote. Senator Nolan second. 121 1 Legislation passes. Roll Call: Crocker, McCabe, Stevens, Potak, Love, Brazee, Nolan, Lyon, E. Robinson, Steinkraus, Mapes, S.

Approval of the Minutes Senator Robinson: Motion to approve with changes. Senator Nolan second. IV. Approval of Agenda Senator Stevens: Motion to approve. Senator Crocker second. V. Public Comment Sarah Waffle, Rainbow Alliance: I would prefer you to not vote on the budget cut. I didn't receive a memo about this. It's not specified in the bill what will happen to our contracts. Please consider pushing this back to talk to organizations. KaeLyn Rich, Women's Center: I would like to second what Sarah just said. I came here to announce a speaker Katie Kostner who was featured on the cover of Time Magazine along with many others and a movie was made about her. She will be here Thursday 22nd at 7:00 P.M. in 2 13 Hewitt Union. Katy Stevenson, NYPIRG: Board of elections is continuing tomorrow and Thursday. I encourage you to vote who you want to represent you in NYPIRG. VI. Guests of the Senate John Gosek, Mayor of Oswego: This committee was created in the 80's to create better communication between the college and community. They also make sure that the positive things done at the college are recognized. Thank you. Missie Hoefer, CCRT President: We would like you to come to our CCRT meeting and we would like you to have fun. There will be an Exchange Day and Bowling Day in the fall. It is fun for us to participate in your Senate meetings. Senator Lyon, Vice President of CCRT: The softball game is May 8' at 10:OO A.M. It will be the City against the students. It will be more fun than competition. There will be a bowling tournament at the end of the fall semester. Our main goal is getting the City and College to work together. VII. New Legislation 1. RES.39.17 Annual Spring Event Senator Brazee: Motion to pass by acclimation. Senator Robinson second. VIII. Executive Report Kevin Sutherland, Student Association President: Thank you for showing up and participating. We appreciate you being here. Sunday I went to the SAVAC Open House. It was very educational. I met with Chuck Weeks about renovating or replacin the SAVAC garage. Kick-off with the Triends" display is from tomorrow until June 4! Regarding the Drinking and Driving booth they will need volunteers to sit at the booth. I wasn't aware that the Bill for the budget reduction was on Special Orders. I feel there are other options. It doesn't say how much money will be saved. It doesn't say when it will be taken into account. Student

Assembly was this weekend. The presenters and workshops were good. The only thing is that there was a room full of leaders and no listeners. Greg was elected as treasurer. Senator Hershkowitz: I know this bill is not making people happy we have amendments. President Sutherland: Have you thought about getting a loan? Every day the amount goes down. Partially I should take some of the blame. Senator Hershkowitz: We would save $42,56 1.93. President Sutherland: What about the organizations that have contracts signed? Kristin Beck, Student Association Vice President: I spent a lot of extra time in the office. Please use the templates for bills. I went with Kevin to Student Assembly. Two resolutions were passed, one which supports legislation within the NYS Legislature that gives the Student Assembly President a seat on the Higher Education Service Corporation, and another which endorses the proposed tuition plan. Please come see me if you would like to read these resolutions. Dessima Niles, Student Association Director of Finance: Hello and welcome everyone for coming here. We can't spend money we don't have. For the organizations we must adjust our budget next year. In terms of contracts you need to see me before you get into any contracts. You learner this at treasuring training. In terms of liability the longer we wait the less money we will have. Some organizations we can hurt more than others. Dr. Scharfenberger: I heard $42,000. What about the rest? Dessima: I am not sure right now. Dr. Scharfenberger: Are there other options on the table? What about raising the activity fee? Dessima: Yes that is an option. IX. Senator Issues Forum Senator Lyon: Motion for a five-minute recess. Senator Brazee second. 6:35 P.M. Vice President Beck: I call the meeting back to order it is 6:4 1 P.M. Senator Brazee: I read the Oswegonian and I was really glad to see someone took notice about the library problem. I appreciate it, I just wish there was a students perspective in the article. I attended the Student Assembly this tuition plan had 5-6 points that were good. I don't agree with this because the bottom says in case of a problem the tuition may be increased. SUNY has more people than all of the people who voted for Governor last year. Next year the problem is getting everyone to register and get them to the polls. The organization that gets the most people in their organization to vote can get a reward. Senator McCabe: Tomorrow is Quest Day and I've never been told in any of my classes when a presentation was at. Students should be made to go to these. Senator Lyon: About the bill and being on Finance Committee why can't they work with SAPB to put on events? Are there other avenues, I don't know? At the conference in Syracuse for Student Assembly I met so many people. I want to get a leadership program started. I was inspired. I want to get involved. I was impressed and I learned a lot from the workshops. Senator Hershkowitz: Nobody wants to see this. It's really crappy. We need to do something to try and fix it. X. Committee Reports Policy: Senator Robinson: There was no meeting this week. There will be a meeting this Friday at 3:00 P.M. Procedure: Senator Brazee: We went over ideas for next year and discussed two bills. Meeting at 9:20 P.M. in the Student Association Conference Room on Monday. Finance: Senator Hershkowitz: Thursday we met for two hours for appeals for the budget. We will be meeting at five again. Involvement: Senator McCabe: We had a meeting to help advertise for tonight's CCRT event. I don't think we should have a meeting next week. Health and Safety: Senator Nichols: We didn't meet last week. There is a resolution on the floor tonight with our name on it. Elections: Senator Robinson: Not present.

CCRT: Senator Lyon: The softball game is on Saturday May 8' at 10:OO A.M. I would like to get the involvement committee involved. I want it advertised to faculty. XI. Special Orders 1. SLE.39.54 Funding for Adopt-A-Grandparent Senior Ball Senator Hershkowitz: Motion to amend in the following ways: on lines 12, 16, and 17, change the amount from $700 to $500. Senator Robinson second. Senator Potak: I think this is a fair number. I think it will work, if need be they can findraise what they need. Senator Robinson: Request the chair to take a vote. 121 1 Amendment passes. Senator Hershkowitz: The committee split in half about this decision. We don't have the money now. They raised a tremendous amount of money. What example are we setting if we spend money we do not have? Vice President emeritus Lawson: They have not used the Senate as a crutch. They have put a huge amount of work into hd-raising. Everything in their budget has been fundraised. They have raised $2,400 out of $3,180 that is needed to put on this event. That's incredible. It would be a bad move to turn your back on an organization that has worked so hard. Senator Brazee: I concur with Vice President emeritus Lawson. It is an awesome event however we don't have the money. It would be wondefil if we could give them the money. Senator Lyon: I concur. Senator Nolan: I yield my time to Rob Bergan. If they need music we would be more than happy to help any organization. Vice President emeritus Lawson: We have known this for a long time. This is a worthwhile event. They are coming as a last resort to the Senate. Erin Halligan: We have been to many organizations and they said the music would be inappropriate. We found a band and they said they would give us a discount from $3,500 cut to $1,000. Senator Crocker: Being aware of the deficit we need to start somewhere. Senator Brazee: Motion the chair to take a vote. 7-3-4 Legislation passes. 2. SLE.39.57 Budget Reduction FY 2003-2004 Senator Brazee: Motion to amend in the following ways: on lines 8 and 9 strike "all unallocated hds in the Student Association 2003-2004 budget be reduced by 15%" and replace it with "all organizations with unallocated funds are to have their budgets reduced by 15%." Senator Robinson second. Dr. Scharfenberger: Point of information to Senator Brazee is it unallocated or unencumbered? Senator Brazee: Change unallocated on amendment to unencumbered Senator Robinson: Request the chair to take a vote. Senator Hershkowitz second. 14-0-0 Amendment passes. Senator Hershkowitz: I would ask for a ten minute recess so everyone can see exactly how much will be cut from each organization. Senator Lyon second. 7: 12 P.M. Vice President Beck: I call the meeting back to order it is 7:23 P.M. Senator McCabe: If we do this 15% cut it would substantially reduce the debt. Senator Steinkraus: We should at least give the organizations some warning. Senator Love: I don't understand why the Budget Council didn't do anything about this. President emeritus Randolph: Nothing about the Budget Council is for the current semester, they deal with next year's budget.

PAGE 33

Senator Robinson: Motion to amend in the following ways: On line 12, add "Money that was deposited through OCT or check cashing." Senator Hershkowitz second. Senator Robinson: This was an issue raised this cut will not touch fund-raised money. It wasn't ours in the first place. Senator Nolan: I yield my time to Bergan. A lot of organizations can't take a cut. Why don't you amend that we decide where the money comes from? Senator Hershkowitz: You asked how much money is not ours. $3,000 out of $42,000. Senator Nolan: Request the chair to take a vote. Senator Robinson second. 14-0-0 Amendment passes. Senator Robinson: To address concern, I understand it's a major hit to some organizations but we don't have any money. I'm sorry. This means a small hit now than a huge hit later. We are even taking money from the executive account. Vice President emeritus Lawson: I'm not going to give you an opinion. This is exactly what we are not supposed to do make a decision without talking to your constituency. They had no opinion. It is more their money than ours. This should be discussed over many weeks and with the backing of the entire student body. Don't do this in the future. Senator Brazee: I yield my time to Jackie. I totally agree with Greg. Four organizations are here. How can you take money and not tell the organizations. You won't have a working radio station if we get cut. Senator Robinson: I yield my time to Dessima. If we have a deficit we will have to cash in CD's and we'll have interest added onto our payments. WNYO you guys purchased a computer that cut will not affect your equipment. Louie Cavalini: A lot of organizations don't know about this. This will hurt many organizations that are planning closing ceremonies. It's too quick for an action. Senator McCabe: We take a small hit now or a huge hit next year. I understand there are end of the year things but that money is not there. It doesn't exist. Senator Nolan: I yield my time to Eve of SAVAC. There is a lack of communication. I understand why it was not brought up to us. It is frustrating that people are voting on something that they don't understand. Senator Stevens: Senator Hershkowitz what are your thoughts about referring for one week? Senator Hershkowitz: The good points: we can send out memos to organizations tonight about exactly what's going on. Bad: it gives us less money to cut and put towards the deficit. The stuff we are not touching is payroll, CD's and contracts. President emeritus Randolph: There are other alternatives: increasing the Student Activity fee or increasing the income lines of organizations. The 15% isn't going to fix the problem only reduce it. Senator Nichols: To Senator Hershkowitz what were the other options? Senator Hershkowitz: Increase the Student Activity fee, freeze accounts completely or get a loan. We do not agree with them at all. This seemed the best one but it's really crappy. This was not taken lightly. Senator Nichols: I yield my time for each club that is here. What would your feelings be if you take a hit this year or next year? Bergan: Next year because we would have time to prepare for it. Maybe 7.5% now and 7.5% later. Women's Center: I would rather it is cut next year to work together with Student Association. Most organizations would be able to fund-raise and work together. It's unfair. There needs to be communication. SAVAC: We have a different situation than the organizations, we have ordered our supplies for next year already. Secretary of Storytellers Guild: It would be much easier and we could prepare better if it was cut next year. You only gave us a week notice.

PAGE 34

Rainbow Alliance: Next year because we know what to expect. What about the 100 organizations that are not here tonight? Latino Student Union: We would appreciate the cut for next year because we can prepare for it. It's kind of hard to tell our members we can't have our programs. Senator Nichols: Hearing all of this I would like to call to question. Senator Brazee second: 4-1 0-0 Motion fails. Senator Love: I agree with Greg, we can't vote on this if we don't know what the organizations think. Taking money this year will screw them over more this year than next year. President Sutherland: The lack of communication needs to be fixed. If you guys vote yes I am going to veto it. Senator Potak: It would cause a lot of harm. We would get much less respect from the student body. If organizations get one week to understand what is going on. We must vote no and see what else we can to reduce the debt. Senator Crocker: Motion to refer to finance for one week. Senator Robinson: Object. 5-8-1 Motion fails. Proxy Metcalf: Since it's the organizations money it should be their decision if it is taken now, later or 7.5% and 7.5%. Use this one-week to your advantage. If it is seen in the Oswegonian people will be interested and let the majority decide what is more convenient for them. Vice President emeritus Lawson: You have known this for the month maybe longer. When have you sat down with the students who pay the Student Activity fee? Under assumption they can spend their money. You are taking a leap in the dark. We are unsure of what we are doing. So many questions, so many unanswered questions. We don't have the backing of our constituents. When you vote imagine every person you represent standing behind you. Good luck. Senator Brazee: Greg's right. When the vote comes up I am voting no. I call to question. Senator Robinson second. 121 1 Motion passes. 0-8-6 Legislation fails. XII. General Orders 1. SLE.39.5 1 2004-2005 Student Association Budget Senator Hershkowitz: Motion to amend in the following ways: Equestrian Team: add $150 to account 1360, Insurance. 13-0-1 Amendment passes. WNYO: change the name of account 1708 from Conventions to Concert Manager Salary 121-0 Amendment passes. Add $100 to account 17 1 1, Office Supplies. 12-01 Amendment passes. Concert Band: Add $2,000 to account 2 102, Equipment.. Senator Robinson: We didn't understand their inventory so we gave them no money. From my understanding they had no inventory, it was a paperwork problem. President emeritus Randolph: They had bought instruments that were under a certain amount, so no paperwork was filed for those purchases. 12-0-1 Amendment passes. Coll./Comm. Orchestra: Add $200 to account 2202, Equipment. Senator Nichols: We felt they were paying for personal items. Have these been purchased in the previous years? President emeritus Randolph: Yes. 12-2-0 Amendment passes.

XIII. Ne 1. Gospel Choir: Add $500 to account 2250, Tour Budget. Senator Robinson: They can better themselves and tour and represent Oswego in a better way. 12-0-2 Amendment passes. SAVAC: Add $750 to account 3200, Radio Maintenance. Senator Hershkowitz: The increase is given to buy new equipment to better their organization. I yield my time to SAVAC. Thank you very much. I am glad everyone understands. Senator Nolan: SAVAC saves lives yo! 14-0-0 Amendment passes. Women's Center: Add $700 to account 33 1 1, V-Day. Senator Nolan: I yield my time to Kaelyn Rich. $300 is nearly impossible to put on this show. An artist donated the backdrop and we bought our own costumes. We appreciate the increase. 14-0-0 Amendment passes. Organizational Contingency: Add $149.66 to account 6502. 14-0-0 amendment passes. WTOP: Senator Hershkowitz: The overall spending is staying the same. They are just moving it around. They can't wait 2-3 years to buy new equipment. Proxy Metcalf: I've seen it first hand. They will increase 150% if they get new equipment. 14-0-0 Amendment passes. (see attached) Changes to the Executive Accounts: 13-0-1 Amendment passes. (see attached) President emeritus Randolph: Increase the fee to $4.08. $57,000 to create a new account saying debt management. Wait one week and think about it. Senator Robinson: I have a major problem. I am not going to support raising the Student Activity fee we should find another way. President emeritus Randolph: The Student Activity fee hasn't even kept up with inflation. It might be bad PR but this might be the best thing. Senator Hershkowitz: I agree with Senator Robinson. I don't think we should increase the fee to fix the deficit. Senator Potak: I don't think we should raise the Student Activity fee. Maybe next year, raising it $5.00 won't break anyone's account. I wouldn't get too worked up about it. President emeritus Randolph is right about the Student Activity fee not keeping up with inflation. Senator Cmcker: I feel we are here for the students. Re-refer to finance for one week. Senator Nolan second. Joanna Besaw: No one looks at it anyway. Nobody is going to care. Senator Nichols: Objection. I don't think we should refer it. President emeritus Randolph: We can't raise the fee if we pass this. 9-4-1 Motion passes. :w Legislation SLE.39.55 Funding for Crew Club Ergs Senator Brazee: Motion to refer to Finance for one week.

Approval of the Minutes 0 Senator Crocker: Motion to approve. Senator Robinson second. Approval of Agenda 0 Senator Robinson: Motion to approve. Senator Nichols second. Public Comment 0 Katy Stevenson, and Board Representatives Mary and Andrea, NYPIRG: We have the off-campus landlord evaluations. They had questions that students interested in living off-campus ask. Guests of the Senate Susan Weber, Associate Dean, School of Education: She gathered information from the senators by asking them broad questions about their goals in education, what the purpose of the education at SUNY Oswego, what is a learning centered education and what is the relationship between out-ofclass experiences and in-class experiences. They ask these questions to faculty, staff and students and over the summer they will find common themes. The results will be brought to us in the Fall. Executive Report Kevin Sutherland, Student Association President: Went over the Student Association Budget as of April 22,2004. See attached. He will only allow people to spend money if it is an emergency or for a planned event. He met with Phil Rankin and answered questions about the budget. Thank You card from Arts Alive. We received a Community Service Certificate of Appreciation. The technology in the Student Association ofice will be better. They are moving out Macs and putting in PC's. The athletic fee will be increased $20.00 to stay out of the red for the next three years. The Student Health Advisory Committee increased $30.00. He discussed the many changes that Auxiliary Services will be making for next semester. Only twenty seniors had their pictures taken so they scrapped it. He wants to get the Alumni to help put the yearbook together for next year. They have the power to contact the parents and Campus Life. See attached for the budget. Saturday night the Black Student Union is having a party. The Policy Committee idea

PAGE 42

more seats doesn't mean more participation. Maybe off-campus forum is a way to increase involvement. The idea fiom the finance sub-committee needs to be decided by my e-board. They are paid to do that job. Senator Steinkraus: Where did you get the $1 SO increase? President Sutherland: The organizations felt strongly about this. May Day is Thursday hopefully people will buy tickets to the concert. Andy Drogo: Where is May Day going to happen? SAVAC: The rides and entertainment will be in the quad and food in the Union and outside of Culkin. Kristin Beck, Student Association Vice President: The Student Involvement Awards are tomorrow. Next Tuesday night is the Concert Band in Waterman Theater at 8:00 P.M. About the Constitution I am uncomfortable with the idea of a fall referendum, do you have a time line, plans? Kevin and I haven't been informed about anything. We are not sure what is going on and we are going to have to deal with this next year. Will there be enough time to promote it? In three weeks senators will be coming in and they won't have knowledge of this. The policy and procedure committee will be going over the constitution. We can't make changes halfway through the year. Why do they have to be made now? What difference is five months going to make anyway? Reconsider your thoughts now. I don't approve of it being passed tonight. Senator Hershkowitz: It was discussed in detail at the procedure committee with senators at large. Senator Robinson: We are pushing them because policy spent the whole year working on them. By-law amendments are going to be attached and it doesn't say when. About not being informed the meetings are open to anyone. Senator Hershkowitz: My intention was to attach it with Senator elections and have it at the beginning of the semester. Vice President Beck: Are the two elections going to happen at the same time? Senator Hershkowitz: We have e-board members and returning senators that will know what to do. VIII. Senator Issues Forum Senator Hershkowitz: We have this finance problem. Thanks President Sutherland you have done a great job so far. Senator Robinson: This has been an interesting two years in senate. It has been a wonderful experience, thank you. Senator Steinkraus: It was a great play this weekend awesome job. IX. Committee Reports Policy: Senator Robinson: I recommend to the finance committee to recommend the members read the income lines of the budget. Asking $250.00 fiom organizations is too much. Procedure: Senator Brazee: The committee structure bill is a pretty strong bill and I hope to pass it. Finance: Senator Hershkowitz: 1% and raise the Student Activity Fee to $1 SO. President Sutherland recommended putting money into the executive

X. XI. account but I don't agree with that or my committee. Put it into account 6501 and we can't touch it until we buy radios for SAVAC and pass it in legislation. Due to the freeze in the accounts the committee recommends failing most of the legislation. Thank you for a job well done Finance Committee. 0 Involvement: Senator McCabe: There was no meeting last week. a Health and Safety: Senator Nichols: It has been a good year. I am passing down a box with a letter explaining it. a Elections: Senator Robinson: We are preparing for the election in the fall. 0 CCRT: Senator Lyon: We are having a problem with City Council for softball. They don't want it to cut into their family time. The City will supply the food. Over the summer there will be a children's Summer Reading Hour and maybe a relay. This will help keep them out of trouble and get them involved on Churchill Road. Special Orders Senator Robinson: These are the best times we can do it. Senator Brazee second. 15-0-0 Legislation passes. General Orders 1. SLE.39.34 Constitution Referendum Language Senator Robinson: Motion to amend in the following ways. Senator Nichols second. Senator Hershkowitz: Do we want to have it in the fall? I think it's feasible. I don't think we should be afraid of changing. This is a way of us evolving. Senator McCabe: Is there any way to get at large senators trained? If not, we should save it for March. President Emeritus Randolph: I think it's a horrible thing. It appears there is no problem when there is. Maybe rework our strategies and get more off-campus students. Senator Nichols: I think this should take place so we can approve it. President Emeritus Randolph: This constitution has been approved. Vice President Emeritus Randolph: Yes the constitution should be brought to the students before approving it. President Emeritus Randolph: I thought the constitution has been brought to the referenda. Senator Nolan: Motion the chair to call a question.

Account 6501 gains the $1 1,000 from these cuts. We cut some slush funds and decided on SAPB. Dr. Scharfenberger: Any considerations for cash reserve. It is part of the amendments for this bill. Senator Hershkowitz: I don't think so. We are just moving them. Senator Nichols: Motion to take a vote. Senator Nolan second. 14-0-1 Amendment passes. Senator Robinson: Motion to amend in the following ways. (see attached Amendments to Budget) Senator Nolan second. Senator McCabe: I don't like the increased fee without asking them. President Sutherland: That's why I had the meeting with organizations and students' ands they were comfortable with it. I think this is a good move. Senator Steinkraus: My hall council voted 100% for the increase. Senator Nolan: I yield my time to SAVAC. We would much rather pay $1 SO than get our budget cut. Senator Love: I brought it up in hall council and they said raise it as much as we need. President Emeritus Randolph: Our job is to provide services to students. I think we need this increase to maintain this level of organization functions. Senator Lyon: I did speak with off-campus students and they don't do anything on campus and they don't want to pay the increase. They didn't want the College Hour either. I'm voting no because of them. Senator Nolan: Off-campus students I know are more involved and they want to continue their activities. There are off-campus students who agree with this.

We are trying to get the docks repaired. We have no money set aside for equipment. 7:30 to 10:OO P.M. is practice to serve crew members better. It is in our best interests to have these machines. Senator Hershkowitz: Unfortunately we have a freeze. The finance committee recommends failing this bill but passing the next bill coming up. Hopellly there will be enough money at the end to buy the ergs. President Sutherland: I concur. I would veto this if you passed it. They have more important things to take of. Senator Nolan: Request the chair to take a vote. Senator McCabe second. Senator Potak: I object. What fundraising have you done?

For not keeping an accurate attendance record of their given committee. c. For not fulfilling their responsibilities as outlined in Section I1 of this law as pertaining to the committee they chair. If you have a set number of meetings say five you have to go to four. Senator Nichols: The way I see it is you have to go to every scheduled meeting and only canceling once. I would suggest without it because the bi-weekly explains it well. Senator McCabe: There should be some kind of clause in there that says for documented emergency. Senator Hershkowitz: The committee is making the decision to cancel the meeting. Senator Nolan: There is no requirement. Dr. Scharfenberger: It might be wise to have the Vice President make a discretionary decision by adding an excused absence.

9. SLE.39.62 Ad-Hoc Academic Advisement Committee Senator Brazee: This is not an amendment to the committee structure. This is another root for getting involved in academic questions other than Faculty Assembly. Senator Robinson: Motion to amend in the following ways. Strike line 3 1 and delete the word "and" at the end of line 30. Add at line 23 the words "Student Association Committee Structure" after the bill number SLE.38.5 1. On line 23 change the word "three" to "four." I changed it to make the faculty and student numbers the same. Senator Nolan second. Senator McCabe: Motion the chair to take a vote. Senator Nolan second. 15-0-0 Amendment passes. Senator Robinson: I love this bill. Thanks Senator Brazee for your help. Please vote yes. Senator Hershkowitz: point of information to the authors when would this Ad-Hoc Committee take place. Vice resident Emeritus Lawson: There are some concerns I have. This committee may not know that the Faculty Assembly has many councils that students sit on. We will have a Director of Academic Affairs who will do this. My major concern is its goals are not defined. This might be premature. Its power and jurisdiction is not defined. The discussion in this committee can be held in other committees and we have a director to address these concerns. Senator Steinkraus: I concur with Vice President Emeritus Lawson. Who finds the faculty? Senator Brazee: I would hope the committee would do this themselves, I had a list of professors I would recommend them to ask. Senator Nichols: I am for this. Why can't we have two branches look at academics? Mr. Westfall: I am not sure it is complete. To create it at this point it's not necessary. President Sutherland: That is why I brought back this position. Vice President Emeritus Lawson: This committee has no authority. The committee members don't even have to go to the meetings. We need to currently work with what we are doing now. I think we need to keep this idea and maybe see where it goes in the future. It can be done under the Director of Academic Affairs. Senator Robinson: Motion for a ten-minute recess. Senator Hershkowitz second. 950 P.M. Vice President Beck: I call the meeting back to order at 10:OO P.M. Senator Nichols: More bodies can't help.

Executive Report 0 Kevin Sutherland, Student Association President: The Director of Finance of the Fiscal year starts July IS'. Lf we don't appoint her she doesn't get paid. Kevin read letter from Nancy Smith, regarding her appointment for the position of Director of Finance for 2004-2005. Senator McCabe: Motion for approval. Senator Nolan second. 11-0-2 Motion passes. General Orders 1. VETO: SLE.39.61 Amendment to SLE.39.51 Student Association Committee Structure See attached. President Sutherland: There are too many questions. We should add parts that allow room if emergencies occur. Senator Robinson: Does it interfere with the Committee Structure bill? Does it leave an out? This does seem legitimate besides going through the entire impeachment process. Senator Nichols: It did happen this year. It would have solved a problemwith impeachment. Senator Hershkowitz: I would hope the senate would use proper judgment. The hearing is before senate itself. We have to do what is right. Senator Stevens: The senate will decide if they are guilty or not. Senator Brazee: Are we allowed to amend. I don't disagree with your concerns. When it was written only the members of the committee could vote. Anybody can do it. Principles of reason don't always come through. So the senate needs to decide. President Sutherland: It isn't in my view strong. Senator Nichols: You are going through the checks and balance process. Granted if someone in his or her family died senate would know. Senator Brazee: My committee wrote this bill and the questions are valid. The original intent has changed. I agree with the Presidents veto.

PAGE 52

Senator Nichols: it still has to go through a senator and the senate. It is not a bad thing. This would give the committee chair removal within one week. They have time to create a defense. President Sutherland: Working on the image of Student Association if this issue comes up. This bill will go into the books. Is that what we want? Senator McCabe: In favor of reinforcing Kevin's veto and have someone work on it over the summer. Senator Hershkowitz: I don't have to worry about looking down the road if it's necessary. We have to be careful. Senator Nolan: Motion the chair to take a vote. Senator Nichols: I object. Senator Robinson: Motion to call a question. li-2-0 Motion passes, veto is overturned. V.

Public Comment Katy Stevenson, NYPIRG: There will be a voting van starting at three. Special thanks to Senator Lyon and all of the drivers. Today we will start off-campus surveys of landlords. SA Referenda is coming up next week, we will be promoting it by talking to classes. Guests of the Senate Shaun Cassidy Fan Club Improv Comedy Troupe The club is thirteen years old. They have broken a record for attendance in a comedy club in New York City. They have performed in Drama Fest and Opening Weekend. An organization can exist without the help of Student Association, and feel they demonstrate that organizations can exist with funding, if they work at it. They put on a 7' Grade Science Fair and have made $2,000 selling T-shirts and going to other colleges to perform. Executive Report Brian Randolph, Student Association President: Thank you for coming. Please sign up for phone banking. We have three full-page ads in the Oswegonian. The staff at WTOP did a good commercial for the referenda. The yearbook is settled. It may be free or $10.00. The price depends on how many are ordered. It will be a fully made yearbook that will have student artwork. There is a good amount of resistance on college hour at Faculty Assembly. I have had a lot of questions about our deficit but our fund balance will cover it. Senator Robinson: I talked to some of my friends and they liked the idea.

President Randolph: Joshua Grosvent worked on these flyers on his own time and we have $200.00 in an account for a graphic designer. 14-0-1 Passes Gregory Lawson, Student Association Vice President: Next week is Miss-AMeal, sign up as we always do. Ask them to sign up and hand them a flyer. Tell them its going to the Christopher Reeves Paralysis Foundation. Our goal is $10,000. Please, this is really important we have worked hard. College Hour: The Faculty Assembly was a blast. Concerns are boiled down to having class at 8:00 A.M. We are not losing a class. I have massive concerns that they will tell students that this is bad. We want to change our college culture. 50% of our students are left out because they don't live here. We have to be strong and active. Senator McClain: We told Hall Council and they wanted to help. What can they do? Vice President Lawson: They can sign a petition, write letters and talk to professors. Do whatever you can to get support Mr. Westfall: The professors don't want to teach five extra days but they don't understand that they don't have to. Vice President Lawson: I'm a little close to the subject to write a resolution. If you want to help please contact me. It takes a tremendous amount of time to make a change on campus. There is so much work involved. Please sign up for Miss-A-Meal, it's my last one I want it to work. VIII. Senator Issues Forum Senator Brazee: Does Auxiliary Services have a vegetarian menu? After the break I want to start a Vegetarian Student Union. I talked to Mary Beth Bell in the library she was wonderful. The last couple of years she has noticed that people have been taking out less books. The Library Council is meeting on March 3oth at 8:30 A.M. to talk about our concerns with the library. Some concerns are leaking, noise and it's uncomfortable. She does not want us to put up a resolution about the library. Senator Stevens: At 6:30 this morning a group of people was chanting and woke me up. Vice President Lawson: We will look into this. Senator Robinson: I went to vote at the Democratic Election and I was the bth person to vote and the election pole was broken. Senator McClain: I am very pleased with the new senators they have such enthusiasm. Senator Crocker: I was woke up at 7:30 A.M. on Saturday morning because someone pulled the fire alarm. Vice President Lawson: Talk to your constituencies and see if there's a problem. Senator Lyon: CCRT one day a month there may be a bowling with the mayor, community and college. Senator Nichols: Talked about Rice Creek Field Station. See attached. IX. Committee Reports

IV. v. Call to Order: 6:04 P.M. Roll Call: Crocker, Beck, McCabe, Stevens, Potak, Love, Brazee, Lyon, Nolan, Nichols, E. Robinson, Stienkraus, Mapes, S. Robinson, Hershkowitz, Westfall. Approval of the Minutes Senator Robinson: Motion to approve. Senator Nichols second. Approval of Agenda Senator Hershkowitz: Motion to approve. Senator Crocker second. Public Comment Katy Stevenson, NYPIRG: Started off-campus survey. Thirty were filled out in the Union. This week the Women's Center is cosponsor for an activist against sweatshops. Patrick Murphy: as a representative of the Faculty Assembly we find that there are serious problems: Adding five minutes to Monday/Wednesday/Friday classes and ten minutes to TuesdayIThursday. There will be one less class period every week for every M/W and TIT classes. What would happen is we would be increasing the total instructional days by five. We would be in violation of our contract. Mandel said three days would be removed. The union is saying if we increase by one there will be problems. They will not violate their contract. There are concerns with the custodial staff and clearing the parking lots. It is going to create pressure on department chairs to make classes earlier. Off-campus students might leave around noon and not stay for the College Hour. Senator Nichols: Why do most high schools start so early if the research says 16-21 years old aren't attentive for 8:00 classes. Professor Murphy: That has been brought up but nothing has been done yet. Professor Murphy: We support the College Hour. I am encouraging the makers to divide the proposal. Professor Murphy: We need the language that five days will be removed. If there are five added, five should be removed. This might put pressure on adding more 8:00 classes. Justin Barbour: I am a commuter student and I think one hour would be great. It takes too long to go home and come back.

PAGE 13

3 3 Professor Murphy: Theatre students stay up all night to give us a quality 34 entertainment and then take an 8:00 class. We need a zero sum and correct 35 language in proposal. Rhonda and the calendar committee must agree. You 36 can reach me at pmumhv@oswego.edu. 37 Annie Vasquez: I am a concerned member. An e-board member of the 3 8 Women's Center who raised $1,000 for charity. I will vote yes even though 39 Arts Alive didn't get one half of what they asked for. Nobody showed up for 40 the Annual Art Exhibition. The culture is minimal. You are required to listen 41 and help your damnedest to help them. 42 VI. Executive Report 43 Brian Randolph, Student Association President: Working on the referenda. 44 Gregory Lawson, Student Association Vice President: The Faculty Assembly 45 is caught up in the debate instead of finding a solution. How is Miss-A-Meal 46 going? 47 Senator Love: Lakeside is doing fairly well. 48 Senator Robinson: Littlepage is doing well too. 49 Senator Crocker: At lunch in Pathfinder it looked to be doing good. 50 Vice President Lawson: It is a perfect time to promote the referenda, ask them 5 1 to sign up and hand them a flyer. This poster was hung up in Hewitt Union. 52 Withdrawals, it is clear we have been abusing this. Have we been making 53 motions that are hasty or ill advised? If we are doing this then why? What 54 does that show to future senates? They will not know what we discussed and 55 why. We have to be careful about motions to withdrawal. It's a gray area we 56 don't want to go. Elections are coming up soon. 57 Senator Hershkowitz: How do you feel you have grown as an individual? 58 Vice President Lawson: I don't like talking to people. I'm not comfortable 59 talking to a group of people. From my position I can speak a little louder. I 60 understand your success is my success. The responsibility is a lot. There are 61 no excuses. You've been here two years how have you changed? You answer 62 that question to me, and I will answer your question the exact same way. 63 Dessima Niles, Student Association Director of Finance: 64 Senator Hershkowitz: So far has there been a lot of concerns about the 65 budget? 66 Dessima Niles: Yes five people have talked to me about their concerns. 67 Kevin Sutherland, Director of Student Affairs: This week Chris and I have 68 been to all Hall Councils besides Onondaga to promote the referenda. 162 69 people are going on the trip. We are leaving Sunday morning. I will bring 70 back pictures. 71 Dan Preston, Director of Disability Affairs: It's good to hear Miss-A-Meal is 72 going well. Challenge Perceptions week will be Monday, Tuesday, 73 Wednesday and Saturday. Monday the 22nd at 6:30 P.M. in 221 Hewitt Union: 74 Person to Person. Tuesday is Senate homework and Greg's last meeting. 75 Wednesday is Faculty Panel in Lanigan. Led by Assistant Provost. Saturday is 76 the basketball game 5 on 5 with the Men's basketball team in wheelchairs. 77 Starting at 2:00 P.M. and hopefully a half time show by The Shaun Cassidy 78 Fan Club.

PAGE 14

Justin Barbur, Director of Off Campus Affairs: There is a Parking Committee meeting tomorrow morning at 8. In the Oswegonian people have been attacking my position. They said I haven't had the housing list available and I'm not helping students. The Oswegonian published this and wouldn't publish my reply to what was said about me, even though it was probably made to make Brian look bad. VII. Senator Issues Forum Senator Brazee: a quick reminder on March 3oth at 8:00 A.M. is the Faculty Library Council. I did invite Professor Murphy to come and talk to us. I am concerned about college hour. What happens when we give college students this hour? I think that students should be students and not have to work. Education should be top priority. Mr. Westfall: I am abstaining from any vote on the College Hour. I've been communicating on both sides and answering questions. Students are in favor of this and faculty hasn't said anything, only about the extra five minutes being added. Greg has presented this well. Adam Obstein wrote a very nice email that was well received by faculty. The Geneseo model was brought up today. I don't think that it would fit our campus. The "extra days" need to be cleared up. 2,250 minutes are the minimum requirement for teaching. Senator Robinson: Today alone the Crew e-mailed it around to fifty people. I think so many people will vote yes. Senator Love: Shaun Cassidy Fan Club uses the Ozone on Saturday but there are people who want to open it. Senator Potak: Denying the article of defense of one of our directors is not right. We are giving money to this organization and they are getting the dirt and not letting people voice their minds. I think this needs to be addressed. Regarding the public comment if people have concerns they should have brought it up earlier. Senator Nichols: About College Hour the maintenance people work harder over night. They put more people to work at night. Senator Hershkowitz: I concur. VIII. Committee Reports Policy: Senator Robinson: No meeting this week. Procedure: Senator Beck: Worked on Removal of Committee Chair. Finance: Senator Hershkowitz: Meeting on Thursday. Involvement: Vice President Lawson: I want you all to write down your opinion what this committee is supposed to do. You can e-mail it to me. Health and Safety: Senator Nichols: Tonight we have a meeting. We will discuss the Security Escort Resolution. Elections: Senator Robinson: For the election your ID is your 800 number. Your password is your last name. Did everyone check to see if you got the email? If you could go door to door. Dr. Scharfenberger: If you go door to door be careful not to voice your opinion.

123 Senator Lyon, CCRT: Met with Missy, we are looking for a secretary for 124 CCRT. Beginning of April there tentatively will be a dinner and bowling. 125 Beginning of May we will try to do an annual softball game. 126 Senator Hershkowitz, Impeachment Committee: We have to have our stuff 127 handed in tomorrow. 128 Health and Safety: Senator Nichols: The Bus Shelters are paid for completely 129 and done. 130 IX. General Orders 131 1. SLE.39.31 Amendment to Student Association Budget 2003-2004 132 Senator Hershkowitz: President Randolph has assured me that there will 133 be enough money to get a CD. He is in favor of it. 134 SAVAC: We need at least an update of our garage, our door kept falling 135 off. The only thing to protect our $40,000 ambulance was a ladder we had 136 there. 137 15-0-1 Legislation passes. 138 2. SLE.39.44 Cheerleading Association Banquet 139 Senator Hershkowitz: They are not able to go to the competition now. 140 They asked me to withdrawal the bill. Senator Robinson second. 141 3. SLE.39.45 Biology Club Aquarium Trip 142 Senator Nichols: The members are paying some of this trip. We did not 143 have enough money to pay for transportation. 144 14-0-2 Legislation passes. 145 4. SLE.39.46 Money for JSU Conference 146 Senator Robinson: I yield my time to Adam Obstein. 147 Adam Obstein: I yield my time to a member of JSU. It is a weekend of 148 Chabot programming. We are trying to maintain connections we made this 149 year at the University of Buffalo Conference. 150 Senator Hershkowitz: I have simple amendments. Our committee felt it is 15 1 an extra-curricular activity and we have given them money already this 152 year. Senator Robinson second. 153 15-0-1 -Amendment passes. 154 Senator Hershkowitz: I request chair to take a vote. 155 15-0-1 Legislation passes. 156 Vice President Lawson stepped down. Senator Beck is heading the 157 meeting. 158 X. New Legislation 159 1. SLE.39.47 Cheerleading Association Funds Authorization 160 Senator Brazee: Motion to refer to Finance for one week. Senator 161 Hershkowitz second. 162 2. SLE.39.48 NARAL Washington D.C. Trip 163 Senator Robinson: Motion to refer to finance for one week. Senator Beck 164 second. 165 3. SLE.39.09 Support for the "College Hour and New Meeting Times" Proposal 166 Senator Potak. Senator Brazee second.

PAGE 16

Senator Potak: It is a great thing and it will benefit us so much. Some kinks but they will be worked out. Senator Robinson: I concur with Senator Potak. Senator Lyon: As a representative of off-campus student and a nontraditional student, I have talked to a lot of people and they think it is a good idea but they want more information. Senator Hershkowitz: When I brought it up to Hall Council they were pretty receptive to it. They were in favor and I like it. Senator Brazee: They all seem in support of this. We can negotiate this and it may pass. Senator Crocker: I love the resolution. I think the faculty is making a bigger deal than it is. Senator Nichols: I concur with Senator McCabe. Vice President Lawson: The faculty will be able to work out the kinks and make amendments themselves. Mr. Westfall: This group is supporting what is put forth so far. Senator Brazee: Motion chair to take a vote. 13-0-2 Resolution passes. XI. Roll Call: Crocker, Beck, McCabe, Stevens, Potak, Love, Brazee, Lyon, Nolan, Nichols, E. Robinson, Stienkraus, Mapes, S. Robinson, Hershkowitz, Westfall XII. Adjournment Senator Hershkowitz: Motion to adjourn. Senator Robinson second. Meeting adjourned 8:07 P.M.

Call to Order: 7:04 P.M. 11. Roll Call: Beck, McCabe, Potak, Brazee, Nolan, Lyon, Nichols, Robinson, Steinkraus, Mapes, Robinson, Hershkowitz, Westfall. 111. Executive Report Brian Randolph, Student Association President: Many off-campus students cannot vote and some can. We need to figure out how to deal with this. It is the election committees' responsibility to fix this problem. In Hewitt Union more people couldn't vote than could. We hope to deal with this in a fair manner. I will open the floor to general discussion. Senator Robinson: We could make it Friday to end voting. We can hold a special election when we get back from Spring Break or have a paper ballot in the Student Association office. Senator Lyon: Can we correct the database? Mr. Westfall: They could restart the database but they may loose what ballots were cast. At this point we are just not sure. President Randolph: Every time someone couldn't log in it sent an e-mail to them. There were thirty-six people by noon. It is still that same number. Senator Nichols: It seems the best option is the paper ballots. Senator Mapes: How long would it take to create a new web-site to have a special election? Senator McCabe: How long does it take to reboot the system? Senator Brazee: I think we should make a list of people who can't vote and have paper ballots on Friday. We can e-mail, call and knock on doors. We can get RSVP to do the staffing. I will not support another online voting this semester. President Randolph: The votes that are being cast are valid and we should keep them. Mr. Westfall: I tried to find out what was going on and they found me less helpful. They are looking at it. They have an incomplete list of students. Senator Hershkowitz: We should extend it until Friday and use paper ballots. I think it's a great idea. Mr. Westfall: We can send them an e-mail but a lot of people don't check their Oswego e-mail.

PAGE 19

President Randolph: Is it fair to tell off-campus students to come on campus to vote? Extend it after Spring Break. Adam Obstein: Get the right list and compare it to the wrong list and contact them. Mr. Westfall: That would have been my suggestion but I don't know if they can get the right list. President Randolph: It's much more reasonable to send e-mail to off-campus students. If that won't work go to paper ballot. Senator McCabe: I agree with Senator Brazee that we should scrap what we have and do a paper ballot. Senator Brazee: We scrap it if and only if electronic ballots don't work. Senator McCabe: We will have a paper ballot on Friday if it doesn't work. President Randolph: It is the best possible option. Senator Beck: How are we going to let them know? Vice President Lawson: We have one theme showing, if you can't vote, fill out a paper ballot, check the lists and extend the election to next week. Is that what we want to do? President Randolph: If we do that the amount of people who vote will decrease. Vice President Lawson: If you extend it we'll have time to get them to vote. Mr. Westfall: My concern is that every student should have the chance to vote. President Randolph: What deals with ambiguity the best? Maybe we should increase the manpower and do both paper and electronically. Mr. Westfall: Should we extend it until Friday? President Randolph: The campus population doesn't have the problem of not being able to vote. Senator Brazee: Dealing with ambiguity in the Union might not be the most effective way, but that is where we have always done it. Senator Nichols: It seems like we are going in different directions. We shouldn't make a decision until we know how bad the problem is. Vice President Lawson: I think we have enough research and we should go in one direction to solve this problem. We should extend it naturally. Senate has to make all decisions. Mr. Westfall: Is anyone against extending it one day after Spring Break. Senator Potak: There's no way for us to know. President Randolph: There are two proposals. If we cant fix the problem tomorrow morning we can do one of two things. If the problem is small we do a paper ballot the next day. A small problem will be less than 500 people who cannot vote. If more than 500 people are denied it's reasonable to extend it to after Spring Break to accommodate people. The Senate unanimously accepts these proposals. Senator Potak: Using paper ballot are we having them next to a computer? President Randolph: The Elections Committee will work to figure this out.

Senator Hershkowitz: Lets all learn from this and next year it's going to be better. Mr. Westfall: Common voice, only Scott and Brian talk. If you hear of someone who can't vote get his or her name and contact information. Roll Call: Beck, McCabe, Potak, Brazee, Nolan, Lyon, Nichols, Robinson, Steinkraus, Mapes, Robinson, Hershkowitz, Westfall Adjournment: Meeting adjourned 8:00 P.M.

We sent four girls to the stunt group competition. The banquet is March 26th at Bridie Manor in Oswego. Executive Report Brian Randolph, Student Association President: Happy to see the elections resolution. 1,850 votes seem to be the second highest total. Thanks for coming to the emergency meeting. He is working on the yearbook. There are some glitches. Seniors do not have to pay the ten-dollar sit down fee for photos. Senator Brazee: How is the provost search going? President Randolph: Going well, an offer has been extended. That's all I can say about that. Senator Robinson: How about the phone prices?

President Randolph: I am going to talk to Mike Flaherty and Dr. Scharfenberger. I am looking at many options. Good job everybody! Gregory Lawson, Student Association Vice President: I like the results of the election. Senator Potak: How was your break? Vice President Lawson: Fun but a lot of work. Senator Robinson: How was Miss-A-Meal? Vice President Lawson: It turned out well. Around $10,600. College Hour was passed but the bill was split. The second part was not passed. There was little objection from Faculty Assembly for College Hour. Dessima Niles, Student Association Director of Finance: The memo says it all. The budget will be here next week. Kevin Sutherland, Director of Student Afairs: The students who went on Spring Break had a lot of school spirit. I was proud. Daniel Preston, Director ifDisability Afairs: Vice President Lawson didn't take enough credit for Miss-A-Meal. I couldn't have done it without him. Challenge Perceptions Week is this week the program last night was poorly attended because of break and class conflicts. The reservation has been finalized. I told you guys you would have homework. It will be in your mailbox tomorrow. May 2005 will be my last year here. This is the last homework for the semester. What is the most important aspect of the work I have done? It will be this bodies decision to replace my position. What do you feel the requirements would be? If not who will do all the work I have done? There is a resolution coming up with my name on it. VII. Senator Issues Forum Senator Hershkowitz: For Crib Selection they use a lot of paper to get us to come back, maybe they could use less paper. Senator Brazee: Next Tuesday at 8:30 A.M. there's an administrative library meeting. Mr. Westfall: Faculty Assembly split our proposal. The principal of College Hour passed. It flew through with no problem. The devil is in the details. They have assigned it to a task force with an end date in September. Senator Nichols: How many students will be on the chair of the Task Force? Mr. Westfall: The Chair of Faculty Assembly, others and myself. I will recommend that a student be on the council. VIII. Committee Reports Policy: Senator Robinson: We went over the Constitution. We are discussing replacing the liaison. Procedure: Senator Beck: There was no meeting last week. Finance: Senator Hershkowitz: We started to discuss the budget problem, we are working with Dessima.

We could 110 put a comment in a suggestion box or something. 111 Senator Robinson: We have discussed it with Auxiliary Services. SUNY 112 Oswego was the test campus for it. I think it is necessary to change their 113 advertising because it isn't working. 114 President Randolph: Us passing a resolution would have a tremendous 115 affect on how they advertise. 116 Senator Nichols: I concur with President Randolph. 117 14-0-1 Resolution passes. 118 X.

President Randolph: I cannot discuss that yet. It's Greg and I last meeting. I like working with Student Association. I've really enjoyed my time here. The people you meet are great.

Dan Preston is the man, I couldn't be happier with him. Dessima Niles is great. Nancy Smith is great. Kevin oh boy, I live with him. Jen Pufky motivates me. Her emerging into Senate her first year. Liz McGrath I love Liz. She does a really good job in the office. I'm glad I got to know her. Dr. Scharfenberger I am very glad he is here. We would have made three big mistakes without him. Gregory Lawson, Student Association Vice President: Who went to the basketball game? We have footage we are going to play. It was definitely worth two years to do this. The game was so competitive. Tomorrow you have a task that I don't envy. I want you to treat Mr. Van Guilder with kindness and courtesy. Be quick on seconds. I feel confident in this group. (See attached.) Dessima Niles, Student Association Director of Finance: The budget will be presented today. We are working on a financial plan for the deficit. In terms of Brian and Greg thanks for making my time here easier. Today is Raquel's Birthday so Happy Birthday. Justin Barbur, Student Association Director of Off Campus Affairs: I want to say good luck to two people I admire. Thank you both. About Greg, I swear I have to be one person those he goes back to his room to complain about. If I need anything he is the person I go to. He has been hard on all of us and Senate because he strives for perfection. The best of luck to you two. Adam Obstein, Student Association Chief of StaE I wanted to thank this years Executive Board Members: Dan, Kevin most importantly Brian and Greg. They got me in and out of many things. Good luck to Kristin and Kevin. Kevin Sutherland, Student Association Director of Student Affairs: Open House is Saturday 1-3:00 P.M. and Monday 8:30-11:30 A.M. It was a very successful year. Greg has grown a lot since he has been in Senate. He is willing to step into every situation and speak his mind. Brian helped me last year when I didn't get the RM position. He joked about buying a house thanks to him I now own a house. He looks very professional but at home he is the biggest slob. Don't move in with him. Daniel Preston, Student Association Director of Disability Anairs: About Greg I have nice things to say about Greg in abundance. I am the only person to serve this position. I have always known what this job entails but not how to do it until Greg has helped me out. Until I saw the way he was doing his job I didn't know how to do mine. He taught me to be a bigger thinker. Our conversations have been the most intellectually stimulating in mine too. Greg passed Miss-A-Meal over to me. For him to have that much faith in me was phenomenal. The game was fun everyone was having a great time. Thanks everyone who helped and showed up for challenge perceptions week. What did you think about the homework.

PAGE 29

Senator Steinkraus: I couldn't think of one thing that was more important than others everything is important. Senator Brazee: I concur with Senator Steinkraus. You are always challenging our perceptions and questioning our culture. Senator Robinson: I concur with both senators. One of the things I was impressed with was the survey of accessibility of off-campus housing and restaurants in town. Director Preston: What if I am not here? What if things happen? Senator Nichols: It could be someone who is willing to do the position that would be in contact with disabled persons. Senator Potak: We should take the responsibility that you do and split them up between the Executive Board Members. Vice President Lawson: Why do we need a position like Dan's? Why do we have to target one person? What's the difference between his job and yours? It should be incorporated naturally. Senator Nolan : I don't have the same outlook. It's how we were raised because of ignorance. Vice President Lawson: but that realization is showing us that you have challenged your perceptions and you won. Director Preston: It has been a pleasure. VII. Senator Issues Forum Senator Brazee: The library meeting was this morning. Senator Robinson attended. Mary Beth Bell does a great job. Over the last ten years the budget has dropped $100,000. Money is being spent on technology. The library is here to support the curriculum. We are not getting the education that we need and want. The budget is bad. If Deborah Stanley is worried we should be too. The hose and bucket are still there. Give me ideas or suggestions. Senator Robinson: There was an armed robbery in Oneida Hall. I have a point of information for Dr. Scharfenberger. What is the campus doing about this? Dr. Scharfenberger: Evidence is hard to come by. Bulletins are a procedure to notify students that this has happened. This happened in the afternoon. The twenty-four hour lock down so far hasn't happened. We have a very safe campus it is very open. If you are concerned it is a wakeup call. This world is dangerous. Speak directly to residents, lock your doors when you are there. Senator Nichols: I live in Oneida. We are all scared and not sure what to do. VIII. Committee Reports Policy: Senator Robinson: Discussed the Constitution and laws around it. Submitting a bill next week. Procedure: Senator Beck: Finance: Senator Hershkowitz: Amendment to NARAL. It's crunch time. Health and Safety: Senator Nichols: Working on Security Escort.

IX. X. Elections: Senator Robinson: We are getting the person for next year ready. We are looking for another online voting site. CCRT: Senator Lyon: The CCRT event is tomorrow it would be great if you all could attend. There's a lot you can learn there. The Mayor is coming on April 201h Senate meeting. That is the budget meeting. We want interaction between the community and campus. Softball May 6th on Thursday. 0 Impeachment: Senator Hershkowitz: Tomorrow night it is important we all attend. 9:30 P.M. Formal Lounge in Hewitt Union. We are the jury please come. Special Orders 1. SLE.39.50 Impeachment Law Amendment Vice President Lawson is stepping down. Senator Beck is heading the meeting. Dr. Scharfenberger: Vice President Lawson and Senator Robinson wrote this. It is important for everyone to think about this before we proceed. We have a court proceeding. We need standards of evidence, does the punishment fit the crime. Try to picture the meeting. Can a sanction be presented? Vice President Lawson: If a sanction was poposed it would run like a traditional senate meeting, we have to remember this is the Senate deciding and it would make logical sense that the senate would run according to their traditional rules. I think it can run smoothly. Senator Robinson: We went by Robert's Rule of Order. 15-0-0 Legislation passes. General Orders 1. SLE.39.48 NARAL Washington D.C. Trip Senator Hershkowitz: Motion to amend in the following ways. On line 12 and 19 change 2,000 to 1,000.

Senator Nichols: What were the committees' thoughts. Senator Robinson: My hall had a huge problem with this. Six votes yes and six no. I am all for this, it seems like a political organization on campus. Senator Lyon: What was the lowest they went? President Randolph: We can fund things political. This is a group that does have a political view to voice their opinion. Senator Robinson: I agree $2,000 was too much. Senator McCabe: I concur $1,500 is more reasonable. Senator Brazee: I am in favor of this but there is not enough money in the account to give them more.

PAGE 31

Senator Nichols: We have given other tier I organizations $1,250 can't we do it again. Motion to amend Change on line 12 and 19 1000 to 1250. Second from Nolan. Senator Nolan: Can't they fund-raise that money? Senator Hershkowitz: Yes, I think so. 2-1 1-2 Amendment fails Senator Robinson: Concerns that Senator Robinson brought up. This is political. Senator McCabe: We support the fact that students want to voice their opinion at Washington D.C. and we should let them. Senator Potak: I concur with Senator McCabe. Dr. Scharfenberger: This is a public institution with a mandatory fee. Is this an educational or social event. Senator Hershkowitz: Page 16 Viewpoint neutral. Senator Brazee: That doesn't mean we can't support them. Senator Nichols: Motion to amend in the following ways. This will give them a better chance to attend this. Senator Hershkowitz second. Senator Robinson: each organization is a different situation. They have plans to fundraise. Senator Nolan: I concur with Senator Robinson. Senator Brzaee: I motion the chair to take a vote.

Gregory Lawson, SA Vice President Farewell Address Mr. Randolph, Mr. Sutherland, Ms. Niles Ms. Smith, Mr. Obstein and Barbur, thank you for a wonderful year, I cannot forget Mr. Seeley Mr. Bacallis and Ms. Blum for what was another amazing year. Liz Magrath Liz you have made these past two years so much fun. I am sure that her will get so much more simpler with my annoying antics gone, however I know Kevin can be equally as annoying so she may be in for another rough year. Beckyand Scott You rwo have always been there to support me and work with me to attempt to change this place. I tell you all now the only guarantee I have found is that success if found easiest when you surround yourself with those who are beyond your intellect, I have been lucky to have to great friends who are sharter than I will ever be. Mr. Eric Robinson, Ms. Kristin Beck, Ms. Jen Pufky and Ms. Brianne Cannon my first crew of Positive, active and determined Senators. Mr. Potak, Mr. Nichols Mr. Scotc Robinson, and last but not least my homie Mr. Hershkowiu you have all stepped up this year and amazed me with not just your hard work but the heart you put into the Senate. I greatly appreciate your dedication. You all have been the perfect friends and wonderful senators. I am not a person who makes friends, but because of this position i have made some of the best Mr. Daniel Preston. You my friend, have made the past two years of my undergraduate experience the most intellecrually stimulating period of my life. You are the most intellectual, the most well rounded and the most passionate person I have ever met. You are an example for everyone. I suggest to eveqone in this room, if you haven't, to take a few moments out of your life and just talk to dan. I was getting pizza when i had my first conversation with dan, and by time I got to eat the pizza it was very very cold, and I wanted to just work on a project. You are the best example of a leader I have ever experienced, and no mamr how much work you do you have a smile on your face and a lot of warmth in your hean. You have been an incredible example for me and a wonderful friend and I thank you for all your help. We joke that we can do whatever we want, but with out your motivation I feel I am not capable of accomplishing a damn thing. So my friend I thank you for challenging us all, and for teaching me so much. --Dr. S~harfenber~eryou challenged me to the point where i wanted to explode. The premise. One time Dr. Scharfenberger asked dats the premise of this work (something I was working on at the time ... ) well I have been reflecting a lot the past few months, something I hope you all do sometime during your college experience, and the premise of all of this [this .. point around and to yourself] is to get out of college stronger and smarter, an intellectually strong and well rounded individual. I was reading in a book you suggested, one that changed my life, and I came across a quote from Morrimer Adler and he said that "all genuine learning is active not passive. It involves the use of the mind, not just the memory." You Sir, have forced me to use my mind and have taught me how to me learn. Your commitment to the students at this institution is an example for all, one that I will never forget. Thank for helping, thanks for challenging me, and thank you for all the support you have given me the past few years. Josh and Jordanyou have been there all the long nights that everyone else was gone. You were there to see my French transformation and you even caught pictures of my long hair. to pounding on my desk in disappointment to blow up farmer outfits to the most dangerous things I have ever done. Trips to Lake Placid, Philly and to musicals 1 never wanted to see. From Phoenix to Oswego (and back so many times), from 201 to 226 from a Proxy, to A Senator, to Pro Temp and VP. Through rivo jobs as prr5ident and the stresses associated with both you have always been there, and i know you will always be there. You m-o are the crurches I have in life and for that support I can never thank you enough or reply you so I offer you a thank you from the bottom of my heart. My brothers ... I know you all don't really understand what I do, or why I do it but thank you for dealing

PAGE 34

with me during this wonderful college experience. A special thank you to Ku rt... Leroy, my littlest brother you are the greatest, you give me the energy to attempt anything and you make being a big brother so much fun. I have had the privileged of ~artici~ating in a huge number of activities because of this position, and I feel I have had the privileged of being involved in a few important decisions because of this position. We together we have worked to make Miss-A-Meal a tremendous success, one I hope you all continue to push forward. We have worked together to make this senate a respected and efficient body. We have worked to refine ourselves and our actions, to act professional and determined. We have worked together to open the doors to this student body tot he services we offer .However, we are not perfect at this, my last meeting I want to leave $u with a few points I wish I could have worked on more. One, we need to understand two simple questions .Questions I never let myself forget. Who are you responsible to? Who are you here to benefit? This senate runs smooth, yet do we really represent the students at this institution? Do we? How do we? I feel we have found ourselves in a state of complacency. We have, in my opinion, created an Institution and nothing more. An institution, a place of practice, a behavioral pattern ... now it is my opinion that in representation the last thing you want is this form of an institution. The last thing you want is a predetermined system of reporting perceived student voices. We need to change a few things. We need to get back to basics, look to the simple things. How are you representing your constituents? Are you? I stand here and will tell you that many of you are not representing anyone. If I had to put a number on it I would say that less than 500 students are being directly represented in this senate. Again I ask you... Who are you here to benefit? Who are you responsible to?? Another point I wish you to consider in years to come is what is the role of this senate? And why are we falling short of fulfilling this role, are we falling short but more importantly, why are we not attempting to ask this question. That is the role of the senate.? Also, We must start acting after considerable thought, thought that is investigative in nature, not thought that leads directly to someone feeling good. Sometimes the best answer is not the answer that makes you feel good. Sometimes you cannot please everyone, and sometimes you shouldn't. We need to spend some time in introspection, the Senate and SA as a whole. What is the role of the Student Association on this campus? What is our responsibility to the students of SUNY Oswego to our organizations, both in a representative nature and in a monetaryone. We cannot continue to spend money on organizations or services that we cannot justify a need for, or justify funding. We need to see where our money is going, and we must be able to answer a student when they ask where it goes. As it stands now I am not sure we can do this. We must go through our budget line by line and ask real questions. We my friends need to start doing real work. This is something I can not do alone, and its not something I expect Kristin or Kevin to do alone, it takes a united action of the entire student association to do. This group, the Student Senate must be the leaders on our campus. This group was organized for such a role, and this group should fulfill its constituted role. IT will take more than just one administration; more than one VP it takes a united effort, an effort that removes personal attachments and interests and effort that truly wants to help and represent the students that I have attempted to represent Saying goodbye is part of a process, a process I don't like. A process that began and seems to continue with an endless cycle of constitutional crisis, and little sleep. I began my involvements with SA as a senator who wanted nothing but this position to be the Vice President, and I end holding the position I wanted. I believe leaving it stronger due entirely to a stronger and more focused Senate. This position has changed my life, and you all have been a part of that. I have come to the realization that the Student Association is more than money its more than clubs and organizations. Its an opportunity for us all to

PAGE 35

learn a lot about ourselves, and as I have said before that these types of involvement opportunities and these types of learning experiences are what college is about. Higher education is no longer just about math and science, English and history. Its about development, it is about becoming the individual you want to be, not becoming the individual an institution was you to be. You see through my involvements here I understand who I am, I know who Greg Lawson is. And I know if you sit back you will see that all of your involvements through SA, clubs orgs, community service, employment, it was those activities are what help create you,. For myself, it was the Student Association that up until this point has help to solidify the person I thought I wanted to be. I hope that your involvements can only be as meaningful and as powerful as mine. I don't know what to say other than thank you all for being there. thank you all for challenging me, and thank you all for dealing with me. But from the bottom of my heart truly and passionately thank you and the students of this wonderful institution for allowing me to serve you. Now that Senator Beck will be running the meetings, this might be the last time i am able to publicly make fun of her. I wont out of respect and admiration to an amazing student, a great friend, a wonderful senator and I predict a perfeci Vice President I must now welcome you to this position and wish you only the best of luck. I thank you all, it has been my pleasure.

Approval of the Minutes Motion to Approve, McClain, 2"d Brazee IV. Approval of the Agenda 1. Motion to Approve, Stevens, 2"d McClain V. Public Comment 1. Vice President of the Boxing Club: Their organization is growing. They hosted underprivileged children and introduced them to the sport of boxing and the equipment used. They need $500.00 a month to rent a space for their equipment, which includes a ring. They need to use space off campus because of the need to put fixtures in the floor and ceiling. 2. Katy Stevenson, NYPIRG: Explained why NYPIRG is against an incremental tuition increase. There is no clause saying if there is a deficit, again they could raise tuition as much as they wanted. 3. Dr. Scharfenberger: Read aloud a letter that will be posted in the Union this Thursday and Friday. Asked individuals to sign it and promote respect and diversity. (See Attached) VI. Guests of the Senate 1. Dr. Richard Hughes, Director of Campus Life: Explained the Events Calendar that will be working on January 19,2004 VII. Executive Report 1. Brian Randolph, President. Thanks the boxing club for coming. Their proposal will take some collaboration. They are motivated and will fundraise to make money. The first meeting for the referendum is tomorrow. The budget is a maximum of $3,000. Plans will be brought up about promoting. He wants to integrate the senators into his presentation at each hall council. In February if every senator could go to two SA organizations to present and talk personally to promote the referendum it would be great. There will be pamphlets mailed in February to promote the referendum and online voting. Last week Direct Assembly went well. There were 25 organizations and about 50 students. The next two direct assembly meetings will promote the referendum. The next meeting is Feb 5 in 104 Lanigan. He participated in airport inte~ews for the provost position. He is working on creating a grouplorganization bulletin. Has a rough draft of the Greek Council Constitution. There will be a set standards for membership, and has been well received so far. When asked about the Ontarian Mr. Randolph replied, "I want to run it less like a club and more like a business. The Layout crew would get paid by the hour so things will get done faster." 2. Gregory Lawson, Student Association Vice President: Miss A Meal results are $5,429. This was the most successful program held on this campus. Senator Hershkowitz: Do you feel SA is stronger this year administratively? Lawson: In part yes, but only in part. The difference this year is we are fully aware of our shortcomings. This puts pressure on us to correct them. Now that we know where we need to prepare, and we must do that. If we don't then SA is in a weak state.

PAGE 3

Mr. Westfall: Do you have any advice for someone who is running for Vice President? Lawson: Study the Senate and the rules. Be prepared, run things over in your mind ahead of time. You have to love paperwork. Be organized and ready for everything. Read lots of things, read through the last 10 years of SA and have that committed to memory. Justin Barbur, Off Campus Services. I am sure the parking committee meeting is tomorrow. Good luck with finals, enjoy winter break. I. Senators Issues Forum Senator Brazee: We should have a table in the Union every week for the referendum, have a box for questions or comments and have a senator and answer questions. Senator Beck: The Senate Outing will be the Del Sarte performance on Saturday at 8:OOpm. We will go to Pizza Hut. Senator Bacalles. I want to watch the democratic debate.

He has three proposals for Rice Creek Field Station to renovate. One is with Daniel Preston to add an accessible walkway. Another is a complete renovation. There are concerns with the Involvement Committee it is inactive. Something needs to get started. Senator Brazee: The last two years the Vice President has run unopposed.

I don't think we should spend so much money on ourselves to get to know each 72 other. 73 Vice President Lawson: We can do this at training, if people showed up to the team 74 builders that were planned in the day. The underlying problem is not the event, its us not 75 going to the events we have now. 76 Senator Potak: The Senators dinner is a good example almost no one showed up. 77 Senator Hershkowitz; I agree another event could be pointless. 78 Senator Bacalles: I know the people I spent three days with better than I know anyone 79 here. 80 Barbur: I agree with President Randolph. I find it strange that hall councils agreed to you 8 1 spending $1,000 on yourselves of the students' money to have fun. Perception is 82 perception. 83 Vice President Lawson: Vice President Tim Barnhardt planned a rope course and no one 84 showed up. We can't attend the events that are mandatory so why create more that can be 85 skipped. 86 Senator Hershkowitz: If we spent the $1,000 the outcome would be much greater than if 87 we used it somewhere else. 88 President Randolph: If it's effective it's worth it. But is it worth it? 89 Senator Potak: It would only be effective if attendance was improved. 90 3-8-1 Legislation fails. 91 3.

XI. XII. XIII. Senator Hershkowitz: They are having a pageant with a DJ and then an after party with the DJ. Senator Bacalles: Do you think it is fiscally responsible to give them another $1,000? They should fund raise for this money. Senator Nichols: According to the members it is their constitution that they have to put this on. Senator Brazee: The pageant wasn't budgeted for and they weren't told and they didn't read their constitution. Senator Bacalles: They forgot and if you were in the real world and forgot you can't be given extra money. Senator Nichols: I concur. This is not a new event, they goofed up and they need to take responsibility for not reading their constitution. Senator Hershkowitz: Motion to amend "Line 14 and 23 change $1000 to $400" a Senator Bacalles: Motion to vote. 6-5-1 President Randolph: We should wait a week and they could transfer funds from The Backyard Jam and use the revenue from the pageant to give back the money.

Good evening Senators, Guests of the senate, members of the audience and faculty. I come before you tonight to reflect on where we stand as an organization, what direction we are going in, and what I think that the student association as a whole should focus on in the future. I have put four and a half years of experience of being involved in the student association into my thoughts on how we are doing as a student government and reflected on many of our successes and failures over the years. Hopefully many of you will share the same sentiments as I do, and if you do not, then I hope that this can begin a dialogue in order to form a direction for us to travel in the future. This year has gone very well so far, other than a number of critical incidents, that it would have been nearly impossible for us as a government to prevent, this year has not had anything significantly bad happen, and we have shown a great work ethic in implementing our government.

PAGE 22

We are one of the most well organized student associations in the state, and we work very hard to cut down on the amount of red tape that we must go through in order to do business. I am very proud of how over the past few years we have progressively made ourselves more efficient, and are striving to work more with our constituencies, therefore increasing our accountability to them. Our current Student Association budget features a diverse group of clubs and organizations, and I feel that for the most part, we are putting the students money in the right place, and contributing to the well rounded education that is a goal of this institution. Our regular operations are well defined and efficient, and we carry them out well. Most groups who work with us walk away happy, and we are very quick to accommodate unless there is something legitimate preventing us from doing so. When I look out to this room today, I see a room full of people who truly care about where we are going, and how good a job we are doing. This is what

PAGE 23

i keeps us doing a good job, and is an atmosphere that we must 0 work very hard to maintain, I have been here in years where this was less prevalent, and when you look through our legislative books, it really shows. This year we are doing a very good job not just to maintain, but also to improve. i + We are going into this referendum as a strong student "." r .I association, but I have many fears about some of the directions we have traveled in because of past actions. We are in a I precarious place, and I am not here to lay blame to why we are, but rather to reflect on it. What we do is not the problem; the problem is the common public perception of what goes on in the Student Association that is going to cause difficulties in this upcoming referendum. Because of this we must work very hard to win back the student body and convince them that we are worthy of their funding, and that what we do with their money makes a difference in their lives. I believe what that we need is to open more lines of communication with the students .n and show that although we do have public fights sometimes, we

PAGE 24

work together very well and efficiently and that we are providing a helpful and needed semce to the student. The Student Association would benefit a great amount if there were more visible community involvement by members of this government. I would like to see all of us step up and take a leadership role when it comes to community volunteer work and involvement, both on campus and in the local city community. Our office of community services is very successful and well run, but I feel that there is more that each "n one of us in this room today could do to bring more people into their doors to volunteer. In the coming year, on top of this, I can't emphasize enough, the leadership role that we can take in nurturing a sense of civic responsibility. I cannot stress enough how important it is that we get our constituents out to vote in this falls presidential election. In budget committee this spring this will be kept in mind and I want all of you who plan to be here next year to really take it seriously. Our involvement in the political system on this

PAGE 25

h campus has been criticized a great deal in the past few years, and I for one think its time to turn this around. I have worked very hard to strengthen the bonds we have with our organizations, and keep in close contact with them, and also made advances to reward the organizations that also wish to strengthen their ties with us. We are working towards increasing both the quality of the events we put on, while increasing the ensured safety and reaction time to critical incidents that may occur in the student association. C4\ Another goal of this administration that has been well met is to not let any club flounder because of simple inexperience in the e-board or disheartening circumstances that hinder a clubs ability to operate. We have brought back groups that were struggling in the past few years, such as the Jewish student union, and given them the guidance needed to garner more attention, and increase their numbers by gaining both upper classmen and freshmen interest through programs like the opening weekend involvement fair. We have gone out

PAGE 26

of our way to ensure that organizations such as the equestrian club are able to still practice and perform together. This fall we had to look high and low to find them insurance, and even harder to find them cheap insurance. A task put off by previous administrations. We have worked very hard to be up front and honest with groups, holding all to the same standard while asking and receiving mutual respect in return. As we expand in size because of the number of clubs and organizations that receive funding from us. I believe it becomes even more important for us to be very strict in enforcing fiscal responsibility across the board. We must prevent redundancies from occurring in the budget, along with frivolous expenditures from taking place for the purpose of emptying an account. Other than refining how the budgeting process works, a key way of doing this can be through increasing the guidance that we provide to our clubs and organizations in how they allocate resources for events and activities.

PAGE 27

We should take steps to go beyond what we normally do to encourage groups to work together. It is key that we consolidate our resources and efforts. Over the years we have begun to allow ourselves to spread out at a rate that is not realistically sustainable for much longer. Often one group will not know what another is doing, and two groups will wind up doing basically the same kind of event. I would like to see us integrate faculty more into what we do. We are in a position to facilitate an expanded relationship between faculty and the student body. This would improve upon our academic environment on campus, benefiting all students who choose to participate. We as student leaders have a responsibility to reinforce an environment focused on learning. Through all our activities we sponsor, from sports to diversity events, we must always keep educating in mind, there is something to be learned from everything, and often there is a faculty person that could work with groups towards their

PAGE 28

purpose while also enhancing their education, these faculty are just waiting to be tapped into. We have done a tremendous amount of work in my tenure here as both president and as a senator, to increase our effectiveness as a student government. We run very smoothly and we clearly define what we must do. I firmly believe that we need to shift our focus into new areas because we have defined how we operate so well, and defining it more at the rate we have, may not be the most beneficial thing that we can do for our student body. With the rest of my time in office, I am going to work on creating new programs for increasing social activities between student groups. Have events that cross boundaries and create a greater sense of community. I would like to see an environment at the direct assembly in the future where people are much more familiar with each other, where an introduction by group members is almost unnecessary, and everybody has a shared experience that links them together.

PAGE 29

We could save tremendous amounts of money for groups and increase the worth of our community by encouraging a consolidation of resources and skills to facilitate larger events. We could have groups that have dances and balls together. Banquets in which groups get together and celebrate not only what they have done for the year, but what each other has done for the year, and all in the process, increasing the total quality of the event. These forms of interaction increase not only our sense of community, but expedite the exchange of ideas on campus while increasing the quality of the experiences of the participating students, which harbors a greater academic environment on campus that will encourage cooperation and action. I do not suggest any radical changes in our government or how we operate, because our current model is a very good one. We have a real knack for tackling problems and fixing them quickly, and I would like to see us take that same ability

PAGE 30

and transfer it to the creation of programs that can encourage what I have suggested. I would like to take this moment to say something to all of you that was said to me a few years ago, that changed my vision of the student association. We are all a valuable component of the student association. All of us have our own special abilities, ideas and attitudes. Each one of us is a cog in this machine and keeps it running on a daily basis. Despite this, it is important that we always keep our minds on the big picture, and where everything fits, and how important each one of our assigned tasks is, and what happens if this breaks down. The same must be said about decision making in both my office, in the Supreme Court and in the senate. We must always focus on the campus wide affect of our actions, because it is often easy to lose focus of this, and get caught up in the moment. What is best for the students we represent is always the best course of action for the student association. Anything

PAGE 31

that caters to something that isn't pure to this idea should not have a place in our operations and we must always work to keep ourselves in check.

DRAFT STUDENT ASSOCIATION OF THE STATE UNIVERSITY COLLEGE AT OSWEGO MANAGEMENT SUGGESTIONS * JULY 2003

PAGE 6

DRAFT July 22,2003 To the Student Senate of the Student Association of the State University College at Oswego In connection with our audit of the financial statements of the Student Association of the State University College at Oswego (the "Association") for the year ended June 30,2003, we noted certain matters that we believe you should consider. Our observations were formed as a by-product of our audit procedures, which did not include a comprehensive review for the purpose of submitting detailed recommendations. The comments that follow summarize our comments and suggestions: 1. REQUIRE STUDENT ORGANIZATION REPRESENTATIVE TO SIGN INTEROFFICE DEPOSIT SLIP. As organizations raise or collect funds they are required to deposit the monies at the check cashing office. A pre-numbered three (3) part inter-office deposit slip is prepared by the Check Cashing Clerk who then initials the deposit slip. The student organization representative does not receive a copy of the deposit slip at the window. One (1) part goes into a safety deposit box with the deposit and the other two (2) are given to the Finance Manager. The Finance Manager retains one (1) copy and delivers the other copy to the respective organization via their mailboxes in the student associations office. We recommend that the student organization representative be required to sign the inter-office deposit slip prepared by the Check Cashing Clerk indicating their agreement with the amount deposited. 2. ENSURE PROPER APPROVAL OF EMPLOYEE TIMESHEETS. As part of the Association's internal controls, Co-Managers are required to approve and sign employee timesheets. During our audit procedures, we noted two (2) timesheets that did not have the appropriate Co-Manager approval. We discussed this with the Student Services Manager and noted the first timesheet was during the school year and the approval was inadvertently missed. The second timesheet was during the summer when Co-Managers may not have been available to approve the timesheet. The Student Services Manager informed us that she reviews the timesheet for reasonableness before processing.

PAGE 7

-2DRAFT In the absence of the Co-Manager's approval during the summer months, we recommend that the Student Services Manager review the timesheets and initial them indicating her review. Additionally, during the school year, the Student Services Manager should ensure the Co-Manager's approval of the timesheet before processing. 3. CONTINUE TO DEVELOP AN ACCOUNTING MANUAL FOR THE ASSOCIATION. During our audit, we found the Association does not have a comprehensive accounting manual. We recommend that the Association continue to develop a comprehensive accounting manual that would include the following areas: a) Job descriptions for all Association accounting staff, outlines of operational procedures, including those performed by the outside bookkeeper; b) Descriptions of the various programs, clubs and activities; c) Definitions and descriptions of all general ledger accounts, in addition to a chart of accounts for the Association; d) Description of the sources of entries to general ledger, including accounting journals prepared and maintained monthly and annually; e) Control functions, including required approvals on source documents and reconciliations; and f) Any information considered necessary for consistent accounting treatment of transactions made by the Association. The principal advantages and benefits to be derived from such a manual are as follows: a) Promote consistency and uniformity in the treatment of accounting transactions; b) Provide guidance and reference for all persons performing related functions, including coordination between fbnctions performed by Association staff and those provided by the outside bookkeeper; c) Decrease training costs by providing guidance during periods of employee absence or annual turnover of the Director of Finance; and d) Provide opportunities for constructive improvement of present procedures through periodic review of the accounting manual.

-3DRAFT In accordance with professional standards, our consideration of the internal control structure was solely for the purpose of determining our auditing procedures for the purpose of our report on the financial statements and not to provide assurance on the internal control structure and would not necessarily disclose all matters that might be reportable conditions. In addition, because of inherent limitations in any internal control structure, errors or irregularities may occur and not be detected by such control structure. This report is intended solely for the information and use of the Members of the Student Senate, Management and others within the Association and is not intended to be and should not be used by anyone other than these specified parties.

DRAFT STUDENT ASSOCIATION OF THE STATE UNIVERSITY COLLEGE AT OSWEGO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS *** JUNE 30,2003 AND 2002

PAGE 10

DRAFT Independent Auditor' s Report July 22,2003 To the Board of Directors and Student Senate of the State University College at Oswego We have audited the accompanying statements of financial position of the Student Association of the State University College at Oswego as of June 30,2003 and 2002, and the related statements of activities and cash flows for the years then ended. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Association's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits. We conducted our audits in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion. As more fully described in Note 1 to the financial statements, prior to the year ended June 30, 2002, the Association charged operations with expenditures for property and equipment that, in our opinion, should have been capitalized in order to conform to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. As it had always been the policy of the Association not to capitalize such expenditures, it is not practicable to determine the effects of the unrecorded assets on the financial statements. In our opinion, except for the effects of not capitalizing expenditures for property and equipment as discussed in the preceding paragraph, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Student Association of the State University College at Oswego as of June 30, 2003 and 2002, and the changes in its net assets and its cash flows for the years then ended in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. As discussed in Note 1 to the financial statements, the Association prospectively changed its accounting policy regarding property and equipment in 2002.

DRAFT STUDENT ASSOCIATION OF THE STATE UNIVERSlTY COLLEGE AT OSWEGO NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS Note 1 Summary of significant accounting; policies The Student Association of the State University College at Oswego (the "Association") is comprised of various organizations carrying on student and academic activities at the State University College at Oswego, New York (the "College"). These activities are financed in part from the proceeds of mandatory fees levied each semester on students in attendance at the College. Disbursement of the fees collected is made in accordance with an annual budget adopted by the student senate. Basis of accounting The financial statements of the Association have been prepared on the accrual basis of accounting and, accordingly, reflect all significant receivables, payables and other liabilities. The more significant accounting policies are as follows: Basis of presentation The accompanying financial statements have been prepared under guidelines set forth in the Financial Accounting Standards Board's Statement of Financial Accounting; Standards (SFAS) No. 117, "Financial Statements of Not-For-Profit Organizations." Under this pronouncement, the Association is required to report information regarding its financial position and activities according to three (3) classes of net assets: unrestricted net assets, temporarily restricted net assets and permanently restricted net assets. Unrestricted net assets Unrestricted net assets consist of the current operating activities of the Association's budgetary funds. The amounts are unrestricted and are available for the support of operations. The Association had no temporarily or permanently restricted net assets as of June 30,2003 and 2002. Reserve for encumbrances Encumbrances represent obligations, such as purchase orders or other commitments outstanding at year-end for materials or services not yet received and are recorded as a designation of unrestricted net assets. Designated net assets The Association is required to maintain ten percent (10%) or a minimum of $125,000 of the total predetermined revenues of the Association as designated net assets for reserve requirements at all times. Income taxes The Association is exempt from Federal income tax under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and under similar provisions of the New York State not-for-profit corporation law. Accordingly, no provision has been made for Federal or state income taxes. Cash and cash eauivalents For purposes of the statements of cash flows, the Association considers all highly liquid investments with a maturity of three (3) months or less when purchased to be cash equivalents. Investments Investments represent certificates of deposit having original maturities beyond three (3) months and are stated at cost plus accrued interest, which approximates market value.

PAGE 15

2 DRAFT Concentration of credit risk The Association maintains cash balances and investments in certificates of deposit at several financial institutions. Cash and certificates of deposit in excess of the amount insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation are subject to credit risk. During the fiscal year ended June 30, 2002, the Association executed a collateral agreement with one financial institution whereby the bank has pledged certain securities to collateralize any balance the Association has on deposit at that institution in excess of the Federal deposit insurance limit. The Association had no uninsured cash or certificates of deposit balances at June 30, 2003, and 2002. Accounts receivables Accounts receivable represents amounts due from the College associated with the mandatory fees levied each semester on students in attendance at the College. Accounts receivable are stated at the amount management expects to collect from outstanding balances. Management provides for probable uncollectible amounts through a provision for bad debt expense based on its assessment of the current status of indvidual accounts. Promrtv and eaui~ment During the fiscal year ended June 30,2002, in order to conform with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, the Association adopted an accounting policy that prospectively requires purchases of property and equipment of $500 or more be capitalized and depreciated. Depreciation expense is calculated using the straight-line method over an asset's useful life, which currently ranges from three (3) to seven (7) years. Prior to the fiscal year ended June 30, 2002, the Association charged operations with expenditures for property and equipment that, in our opinion, should have been capitalized in order to conform with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. As it had always been the policy of the Association not to capitalize such expenditures, it is not practicable to determine the effects of the unrecorded assets on the financial statements. The effect on the change in net assets of prospectively adopting the capitalization policy was to increase the change in net assets by $92,483 for the fiscal year ended June 30,2002. Property and equipment consisted of the following: Equipment Computers Less Accumulated depreciation June 30. 2003 2002 $ 150,313 $ 92,652 23,048 13,242 173,361 105,894 37,985 13,411 s222Au Depreciation expense reflected in the statements of activities for the years ended June 30,2003 and 2002, was $24,574 and $13,411, respectively.

PAGE 16

-3DRAFT Retirement plan -The Association maintains a qualified defined contribution plan (the "Plan"), which provides for employee contributions under Section 403(b) of the Internal Revenue Code. The Plan covers all full-time employees of the Association. The Association contributed approximately $6,900 and $5,800 to the Plan on behalf of the employees for the years ended June 30,2003 and 2002, respectively. Use of estimates The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of support, revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Note 2 Commitments and contingencies For the fiscal year ended June 30, 2002, the Association paid $15,500 for accounting services to Auxiliary Services of the State University College at Oswego, Inc. ("Auxiliary Services"). Additionally, the Association purchased approximately $37,000 and $45,000 in dining services from Auxiliary Services for the fiscal years ended June 30, 2003 and 2002, respectively. During the fiscal year ended June 30, 2002, the Association received a $20,000 donation from Auxiliary Services for the purchase of a campus ambulance. The Association entered into an agreement in July 2002 with Centro of Oswego, Inc. ("Centro") to provide regular route service to students for discounted rates. In consideration of this, the Association agreed to subsidize Centro for these services. The agreement required the Association to make five (5) payments of $14,000 in fiscal 2003. Additionally, the agreement requires the Association to make five (5) payments of $14,900 in fiscal 2004. The Association paid $24,108 and $51,632 to The New York Public Interest Research Group, Inc. (the "NYPIRG) for the fiscal years ended June 30,2003 and 2002, respectively. The Association had an annual agreement with NYPIRG to pay them $4 per student each fall and spring semester through May 31, 2002, for use in providing legitimate services and materials necessary to carry out the research, co-curricular programming and public interest goals of NYPIRG. The Association did not enter into an agreement with NYPIRG during the fall semester for the fiscal year ended June 30,2003. An agreement was entered into for the spring semester of 2003. The Association paid $71,400 and $61,876 to the College for various expenses associated with the campus intramural and recreation programs for the fiscal years ended June 30, 2003 and 2002, respectively. The Association has entered into a similar agreement for the fiscal year ending June 30,2004, requiring four (4) equal payments of $17,500.

Executive Report Brian Randolph, Student Association President: He is extremely busy with being president. Miss-A-Meal is on the 20~ the goal is $5,000, it starts the 17~. He is bringing another Supreme Court Justice next week. The provost search committee is going well. He might be looking at applications in Culkin so if you cannot reach him he should be there. The impeachment law seems good. Cap for carbon dioxide emissions looks OK. 1 hope that goes well. Where do we want to go with the hazing bill as a student organization? Gregory Lawson, Student Association Vice President: We started late tonight. Remember the meeting start at 6:00 P.M. Senate dinner is before the meeting and attendance is low. It is important to go. Make sure you are going to your committee meetings. Sign-up for Miss-A-Meal they are in half an hour slots. You just ask every person who walks in to sign up for it. Everyone has enough time to work one half an hour shift. Dan Preston has put a lot of work on this before you received this bill. They are promoting this to the campus community. Senator Issues Forum Senator McClain: The NYPIRG book exchange is a good idea. Senator Hershkowitz: I was walking down the street today when I saw three people in a black car swerving and splashed my white pants while shouting profanities at me. It is pretty sad.

PAGE 22

Senator Robinson: I am creating an interdisciplinary with Dr. Murphy. An ENG 395 course where senators and the executive board can get credit for doing work for student senate. It is an option not required. It is a way that we could get credit for doing senate work. Senator Brazee: His time is spread pretty thin working with many organizations. He agrees with the class. He managed to go to the 7Ih Grade Science Fair, he commends the Shawn Cassidy Fan Club for their creativity. He hopes to see more organizations doing things like that. Senator Nichols: Happy Veterans Day! Think of a Veteran who serviced for our country. Senator Robinson: How is everyone's hall council going? Mine is going well. If you need suggestions talk to me after the meeting. VIII. Committee Reports Policy: 39.14 we recommend passage with amendment. We are done reviewing the constitution. They have a lot of amendments. They are still working on the mission statement. If you have any ideas go to the next meeting. Procedure: I think we have a solid document right now. There are a few things we could contest that we have questions on. Finance: They are finishing up the charters. The bill will be ready next week. They are focusing on the report the Vice President gave us. Involvement: Next week we want to take pictures to put in the display. Meet on Thursday at 6:30 P.M. in Funnelle. Health and Safety: There are a few amendments to the carbon dioxide bill. They are starting to deal with the blue light and security escort systems.

Passes Senator Bacalles: the purpose of the bill is to say we agree with Pataki, it is unnecessary. Senator Hershkowitz: it tells him that it is what we want to happen Seantor Potak: it is something that would help us Resolution passes 14-0-2 5. RES.39.04 Student Associations Continued Support of Campus and Community Efforts against Hazing Senator Robinson: this is important; there have been problems in other SUNY schools. We are taking precautions that it doesn't happen. Also to show that the campus efforts are not going unnoticed. Senator Hershkowitz: I have problems with this, it is implied that we agree with the no hazing policy, it is in the rules. President Randolph: why do we need to say this? Maybe if we were Plattsburgh but its not relevant. The wording is unusual it's assertive for a resolution. I don't think this is necessary. Senator Nichols: I concur with Senator Hershkowitz. Senator Somerset: hazing is done on campus. It may be comforting to someone who has been a victim of hazing that we don't support it. Senator Brazee: It seems redundant unless we take action about hazing. I hope it's obvious we don't agree with hazing. Senator McClaine: I agree with Senator Brazee. Senator Bacalles: If we send a resolution we should define hazing. Vice President Lawson: it is in binding, the definition of hazing. Senator Hershkowitz: Re-refer this motion to amend. President Randolph: this is a hot topic. I think this should be re-referred. Motion to withdraw. New Legislation 1.

Ok, we are having the first meeting of the referenda promotion committee tomorrow at seven in the student association conference room, you are all welcome to attend this meeting. We have a number of things in place now to promote the referendum; I have set up a budget for us to spend on the referendum as well as items for us to be handing out. I have gone through my budget and decided that I will give a maximum of a three thousand dollar budget to our committee and feel that this should be more than enough to promote the referendum well. I will of course wait until we meet to make any solid decisions about how to split up the money, but I will be coming to the meeting with a number of plans that committee members will hopehlly want to buy into, and if not, we will formulate a new set of ideas. We need to have an approach that heavily includes our organizations and hall councils. Earlier in the semester I had said I would be visiting the hall councils to present on the student association. Soon after I realized this would be a great deal more affective if done in February rather than October because we will be fresh in the student's minds when the issue is at hand. I would like to do a presentation that integrates each senator from the building to show that we have a place in every part of campus. I suggest that we use both the direct assembly and the senate to do this. I would appreciate it if ever senator could find two organizations to meet with Now I know the

PAGE 31

senate liaison program has been repealed, and I in no way want this to seem like I'm trylng to get you to follow it anyways, I just would appreciate one meeting with two organizations each to help us out. We have over 80 organizations and there is no way my e-board could possibly meet with all of them individually. I also have fliers prepared for an all campus mailing that should be done in February or maybe even closer to the referendum; I will discuss this all this with the committee tomorrow. I would like to use this mailing to also promote the elections being online if this takes place and am prepared take any other steps necessary to inform the student body if a new elections process is implemented. I would like to take a straw poll of who would be willing to take the time out to meet with two organizations during the month of February, if you don't want to its ok since you are not legislated to do so and this is more of a buy in program. In lieu of what has been going on with our website I updated it to the best of my ability and the information on it should be up to date now. All pertinent financial documents such as purchase order request forms have been transferred to the website. After the meeting I would like to take every body's pictures so that I can try to put your pictures online some time during winter break. If you don't want your picture taken its no big deal.

Last week was the direct assembly and it was notably more successful than the last one. I do not believe we have a problem with the direct assembly as I have stated before, we simply had a bad meeting because of the vast amount of activities going on during the last meeting. We are keeping the meeting on Thursday nights because I have checked booking and meeting records and it is the night that the most organizations are able to attend. We have a new incentive program for attending the meetings that is working out very well and I believe that the possibility of being rewarded for attending the meetings will keep groups interested and engaged. From what I can tell we had about 25 organizations (roughly fifty students) represented at this meeting which I believe is a pretty good amount. In addition we had presidents and e-boards from a number of Greek organizations in attendance. We believe that next meeting we will get even more, but realistically I think about hrty organizations and about sixty students is a good number to shoot for regularly attending. Last week was a very bad week for me, I'm sorry if I was not very available and apologize for my absence at last week's senate meeting, I had a family member pass away unexpectedly. I did however participate in the airport interviews for the provost search committee because of its extreme importance to the future of the campus. Unfortunately our meeting with the

PAGE 33

president was bumped back to this Thursday so I cannot yet give you a list of the candidates who will be visiting the campus in February for our final decision. I can assure you that we were very rigorous in our interview process, spending ten hours a day for two days on interviewing potential candidates. I hope that when these candidates do come to campus in February and more information can be divulged that you will all take a personal interest in it. This committee took an extensive amount of time in selecting them and I have also spent a very large amount of time to the point where it has consumed me a great deal because the future reputation of the college hinges on the performance of the Provost.

December 8,2003 To Members of our Academic Community On October 31,2003, a member of our academic community was subjected to acts that targeted him during a class studying Native American heritage. This act adversely affected the instructor and the students in the class. We are an academ'~: community which values and respects the diversity that each of us brings to the campus. Our curriculum and various out-ofclass activitii intentionally provide us with ways to learn about people whose life experiences may be different than ours. These opportunities increase our ability to live and work in an everdanging national and global envlronment. Our academic community is focused, in part, on providing opportunities for its members to learn and develop intellectually and personally in an inclusive campus environment. The diversity of the ethnic heritage that exists among our members enriches the quality and breadth of our learning. Native Americans have a riih culture and sacred traditlons that several members of our academic community and natives in the surrounding area still practice in their daily lives. This culture, along with many other cultures present in our academic community, should be respected and celebrated here. Those among us who may suffer the hurt of hate or bias incidents or language, whether done intentionally or out of Ignorance, are affirmed in our community by the knowledge that others will stand publidy in soiidarity as allies and actively seek ways to make our community better. Because our coliege is a smaller part of our larger society, It is important that we understand that bias incidents may occur within our academic community. Therefore, it is imperative that we support of each other in our learning experiences, pledge to conduct oursehres in a manner that is respectful of each other, and affirm the values of our College, as expressed through the College Vision Statement: Oswego students will be the focus of an educational community enlivened by a passion for leamlng where the habit of intellectual inquiry Is insplred through teaching, schdatshp, and mentorlng; where integration and appfhtlon of knowledge are valued; where the ideals of high moral character, global understanding, resped for human divmity, and awareness of soclal m.sponsibiI@ are rooted in our acBclemIc culture. (Engagement 2000 Beyond Aspirations: A Learner-Centered Culture) We invite those who may wish to support the reflections in this Letter to the Acedemic Communify to come to the Hewitt Union on Thursday and Friday, December 11 and 12,2003, to sign a copy of thls letter. The signed copb of this letter will be posted in the Hewitt Union as a public display [as a display of allles] for the duration of this semester and may be used as a backdrop to the many ethnic celebrations that traditionally occur during the spring semester. Our signature affirms our commitment to a living, learning, and work environment where we treat each other with respect.

President Randolph: Tried to be in contact with him however he has not received a reply. Senator Brazee: Is there an organization mailing list? President Randolph: Yes, but we need better contact information. Senator Bacalles: There was a list created for this purpose last year. President Randolph: They do not have the passwords to get into it. Senator Robinson: Where is your legislative agenda? President Randolph: Does not have one yet. He will be bringing changes to the financial policy, financial processes and expenditures, as well as the Constitution. Believes there are some things in the financial policy that bind us, and tie our hands and we need to remain flexible. Senator Beck: What did you mean by the Constitution? President Randolph: Things are written a little too broad. Senator Beck: We would like your input as soon as possible. Senator Robinson: The Policy Committee has been open to all suggestions on the Constitution. Senator Hershkowitz: It's a very important year, specifically with the referendum, what do you have planned.. President Randolph: I have a graphic designer working on advertising. Senator Nichols: Have you looked up any prices for pens, mugs or key chains for the referendum? President Randolph: We do not have to start promoting it until February. Senator Beck: I think it is important to start telling the organizations so they could plan this before winter break, because I do not think we will have enough time to prepare when we get back in the spring. Senator Robinson: I agree. Senator Brazee: I suggest that everyone's concerns about the referendum are correct. I would like you to have a presentation and I would like to talk to you about some ideas I have for it that I have thought about since this summer. Senator Bacalles: We need to be proactive because if people see tuition increase and they are asked, Do you want a mandatory SA fee? They will not want to vote yes for the fee. President Randolph: Your concerns are noted. If you want me to I can make a presentation for senate on my plans. Senator Beck: In the computer lab at the Student Association Office the Internet is very slow.

Daniel Preston, Director of Disability Affairs: Miss A Meal is going on now please participate. He finally got dates for the basketball team. They know how to play basketball so they can't come crying to us when they lose. He is working on disabilities awareness week, and would like to rename it. Disabled student group working on getting a student activist group. Working with Justin from off campus affairs for handicap accessible. Brown Bag Forum on disability needs.

They have an internship in the education department where you can change the disability polices, for the better. The BCCC or Beyond Compliance Committee. He has a bowling story. Last week he went with a group to the new bowling alley. He used a bowling ramp to help him bowl, when he backed into a woman with his manual chair. She commented that the thing he was using to bowl is great. She has niece with Cerebral Palsy. He told her that every bowling alley should have a ramp and if they do not that she could bowl sitting in a chair. He gets an incredible high from an encounter like this. You come here and go to your meetings every week. But think what do you do as senators that you are not expected to do? My advocacy never stops. I find my constituents if I can and I talk to and help them. What do you do for them outside what you have to do? What could you do differently? What can they do for you? Come up with some ideas for next weeks meeting. Senator Issues Forum Senator Brazee: He supports the Turkey Drive, donate $1.00, he donated $3.00. He's going to start a newsletter. What is your opinion? Senator Hershkowitz: We all lived through the blackout. I enjoyed it. It forced us to socialize with the people around us. Senator Somerset: The issue of the parking garage? Senator Robinson: Because of our winter weather it would be beyond cost effective. Senator Bacalles: CCRT event, not bowling because she has no time. Maybe caroling or visit children in the hospital? Senator Hershkowitz: It's a good idea but December is so busy. Senator Beck: Is Mayor Gosek more available for bowling than caroling. Senator Robinson: Second the bowling idea. Senator Steinkraus: What about sledding? Senator Beck: We will do our own bowling thing after Thanksgiving Mr. Westfall: He missed Faculty Assembly this week. They voted down the short addldrop period. Miss A Meal was very well received, particularly because Cheryl was open with the students. Senator Brazee: Barb at Lakeside helped me. The students did not accept it well. We need to further show the importance of this. Senator Bacalles: We had eight pages. My brother and I regulated them. Committee Reports Policy: Robinson: discussed the Constitution, whether or not to change it to a missions statement. Please e-mail me with changes, or if you like it. Going over legislative branch and Procedure 39.15 & 39.17 past with amendments..

The bears will be sold from the 1" to the sth. All funding will go directly to the foundation. Vote to vote: fails. Motion for five-minute recess to make sure that this is what we want to do.

PAGE 39

Dr. Scharfenberger: Asks the senators to consider this legislation in light of its financial policy. President Randolph: You can spend money to make money for charity. Any money you don't spend you can't spend on charity. Senator Hershkowitz:, It is different because they are not selling the bears; they are donating money to them. Senator McClain: motion to call the question 9 5 1 Fails. Senator Robinson: Concur with Dr. Scharfenberger. $490.00 for the bears but they are asking for a donation. Dr. Scharfenberger: I suggest that you be careful. You can support an event that supports a charity. President Randolph: The only way I see this is that no check can be handed to CAAF from Student Association for $490.00. 14 0 1 Legislation Passes XI.

The first step in the Impeachment Process involves any member of the Student Association going around campus to have a petition signed by thirty percent (30%) of the total number of voters from the previous all campus election (IE: if there were 1000 students who voted in the last all campus election, then you would need to get 300 students to sign the petition). There are certain rules that must be adhered to when it comes to the petition. If the petition does not appear exactly as seen in appendix 1 of the Impeachment Law, then those pages will not be allowed to be counted towards the 30% that is needed to go forward with the impeachment proceedings. If the Student Association Supreme Court Clerk deems a name illegible, then that name will be deemed ineligible to count towards the 30% necessary to continue with the impeachment proceedings. If you have any questions about the process and how it will be conducted after you turn in the petition, feel free to ask the Student Association Vice President for a copy of that law. Sincerely, The Student Association Executive Board, Senators and Supreme Court Justices

Obstein we have gone through school for five years. Justin Barbour has done a great job looking out for students. Dan Preston is the man, I couldn't be happier with him. Dessima Niles is great. Nancy Smith is great. Kevin oh boy, I live with him. Jen Pufky motivates me. Her emerging into Senate her first year. Liz McGrath I love Liz. She does a really good job in the office. I'm glad I got to know her. Dr. Scharfenberger I am very glad he is here. We would have made three big mistakes without him. Gregory Lawson, Student Association Vice President: Who went to the basketball game? We have footage we are going to play. It was definitely worth two years to do this. The game was so competitive. Tomorrow you have a task that I don't envy. I want you to treat Mr. Van Guilder with kindness and courtesy. Be quick on seconds. I feel confident in this group. (See attached.) Dessima Niles, Student Association Director of Finance: The budget will be presented today. We are working on a financial plan for the deficit. In terms of Brian and Greg thanks for making my time here easier. Today is Raquel's Birthday so Happy Birthday. Justin Barbur, Student Association Director of Off Campus Affairs: I want to say good luck to two people I admire. Thank you both.

Greg has grown a lot since he has been in Senate. He is willing to step into every situation and speak his mind. Brian helped me last year when I didn't get the RM position. He joked about buying a house thanks to him I now own a house. He looks very professional but at home he is the biggest slob. Don't move in with him. Daniel Preston, Student Association Director of Disability Affairs: About Greg I have nice things to say about Greg in abundance. I am the only person to serve this position. I have always known what this job entails but not how to do it until Greg has helped me out. Until I saw the way he was doing his job I didn't know how to do mine. He taught me to be a bigger thinker. Our conversations have been the most intellectually stimulating in mine too. Greg passed Miss-A-Meal over to me. For him to have that much faith in me was phenomenal. The game was fun everyone was having a great time. Thanks everyone who helped and showed up for challenge perceptions week. What did you think about the homework.

PAGE 3

Senator Steinkraus: 1 couldn't think of one thing that was more important than others everything is important. Senator Brazee: I concur with Senator Steinkraus. You are always challenging our perceptions and questioning our culture. Senator Robinson: I concur with both senators. One of the things I was impressed with was the survey of accessibility of off-campus housing and restaurants in town. Director Preston: What if I am not here? What if things happen? Senator Nichols: It could be someone who is willing to do the position that would be in contact with disabled persons. Senator Potak: We should take the responsibility that you do and split them up between the Executive Board Members. Vice President Lawson: Why do we need a position like Dan's? Why do we have to target one person? What's the difference between his job and yours? It should be incorporated naturally. Senator Nolan : I don't have the same outlook. It's how we were raised because of ignorance. Vice President Lawson: but that realization is showing us that you have challenged your perceptions and you won. Director Preston: It has been a pleasure. VII. Senator Issues Forum Senator Brazee: The library meeting was this morning. Senator Robinson attended. Mary Beth Bell does a great job. Over the last ten years the budget has dropped $100,000. Money is being spent on technology. The library is here to support the curriculum. We are not getting the education that we need and want. The budget is bad. If Deborah Stanley is worried we should be too. The hose and bucket are still there. Give me ideas or suggestions. Senator Robinson: There was an armed robbery in Oneida Hall. I have a point of information for Dr. Scharfenberger. What is the campus doing about this? Dr. Scharfenberger: Evidence is hard to come by. Bulletins are a procedure to notify students that this has happened. This happened in the afternoon. The twenty-four hour lock down so far hasn't happened. We have a very safe campus it is very open. If you are concerned it is a wakeup call. This world is dangerous. Speak directly to residents, lock your doors when you are there. Senator Nichols: I live in Oneida. We are all scared and not sure what to do. VIII. Committee Reports Policy: Senator Robinson: Discussed the Constitution and laws around it. Submitting a bill next week. Procedure: Senator Beck: Finance: Senator Hershkowitz: Amendment to NARAL. It's crunch time. Health and Safety: Senator Nichols: Working on Security Escort.

Special Orders 1. SLE.39.50 Impeachment Law Amendment 0 Vice President Lawson is stepping down. Senator Beck is heading the meeting. 0 Dr. Scharfenberger: Vice President Lawson and Senator Robinson wrote this. It is important for everyone to think about this before we proceed. We have a court proceeding. We need standards of evidence, does the punishment fit the crime. Try to picture the meeting. Can a sanction be presented? Vice President Lawson: If a sanction was poposed it would run like a traditional senate meeting, we have to remember this is the Senate deciding and it would make logical sense that the senate would run according to their traditional rules. I think it can run smoothly. Senator Robinson: We went by Robert's Rule of Order. 15-0-0 Legislation passes. X. General Orders 1. SLE.39.48 NARAL Washington D.C. Trip Senator Hershkowitz: Motion to amend in the following ways. On line 12 and 19 change 2,000 to 1,000.

Senator Nichols: What were the committees' thoughts. Senator Robinson: My hall had a huge problem with this. Six votes yes and six no. I am all for this, it seems like a political organization on campus. Senator Lyon: What was the lowest they went? President Randolph: We can fund things political. This is a group that does have a political view to voice their opinion. Senator Robinson: I agree $2,000 was too much. Senator McCabe: I concur $1,500 is more reasonable. Senator Brazee: I am in favor of this but there is not enough money in the account to give them more.

This is political. Senator McCabe: We support the fact that students want to voice their opinion at Washington D.C. and we should let them. 0 Senator Potak; I concur with Senator McCabe. Dr. Scharfenberger: This is a public institution with a mandatory fee. Is this an educational or social event. Senator Hershkowitz: Page 16 Viewpoint neutral. Senator Brazee: That doesn't mean we can't support them. Senator Nichols: Motion to amend in the following ways. This will give them a better chance to attend this.

Gregory Lawson, SA Vice President Farewell Address Mr. Randolph, Mr. Sutherland, Ms. Niles Ms. Smith, Mr. Obstein and Barbur. thank you for a wonderful year, I cannot forget Mr. Seeley Mr. Bacallis and Ms. Blum for what was another amazing year. Liz Magrath Liz you have made these past two years so much fun. I am sure that her will get so much more simpler with my annoying antics gone, however I know Kevin can be equally as annoying so she may be in for another rough year. Becky and Scott You two have always been there to support me and work with me to attempt to change this place. I tell you all now the only guarantee I have found is that success if found easiest when you surround yourself with those who are beyond your intellect, I have been lucky to have to great friends who are smarter than I will ever be. Mr. Eric Robinson, Ms. Kristin Beck, Ms. Jen Pufky and Ms. Brianne Cannon my first crew of Positive, active and determined Senators. Mr. Potak, Mr. Nichols Mr. Scott Robinson, and last but not least my homie Mr. Hershkowitz you have all stepped up this year and amazed me with not just your hard work but the heart you put into the Senate. I greatly appreciate your dedication. You all have been the perfect friends and wonderful senators. I am not a person who makes friends, but because of this position i have made some of the best Mr. Daniel Preston. You my friend, have made the past two years of my undergraduate experience the most intellectually stimulating ~eriod of my life. You are the most intellectual, the most well rounded and the most ass ion ate person I have ever met. You are an example for evetyone. I suggest to everyone in this room, if you haven't, to take a few moments out of your life and just talk to dan. I was gettmg pizza when i had my first conversation with dan, and by time I got to eat the ~izza it was very very cold, and I wanted to just work on a project. You are the best example of a leader I have ever experienced, and no matter how much work you do you have a smile on your face and a lot of warmth in your heart. You have been an incredible example for me and a wonderful friend and 1 thank you for all your help. We joke that we can do whatever we want, but with out your motivation 1 feel I am not capable of accomplishing a damn thing. So my friend I thank you for challenging us all, and for teaching me so much. Dr. S~hadenber~eryou challenged me to the point where i wanted to explode. The premise. One time Dr. S~harfenber~er asked whats the premise of this work (something I was working on at the time ... ) well I have been reflecting a lot the past few months, something I hope you all do sometime during your college experience, and the premise of all of this [this .. point around and to yourself] is to get out of college stronger and smarter, an intellectually strong and well rounded individual. I was reading in a book you suggested, one that changed my life, and I came across a quote from Mortimer Adler and he said that "all genuine learning is active not passive. It involves the use of the mind, not just the memory." You Sir, have torced me to use my mind and have taught me how to me learn. Your commitment to the students at this institution is an example for all, one that I will never forget. Thanks for helping, thank for challenging me, and thank you for all the support you have given me the past few years. Josh and Jordanyou have been there all the long nights that everyone else was gone. You were there to see my French transformation and you even caught pictures of my long hair, to pounding on my desk in disappointment to blow up farmer outfits to the most dangerous things I have ever done. Trips to Lake Placid, Philly and to musicals I never wanted to see. From Phoenix to Oswego (and back so man): times), from 201 to 226 from a Proxy, to A Senator, to Pro Temp and VP. Through two jobs as president and the stresses associated with both you have always been there, and i know you will always be there. You two are the crutches I have in life and ior that support I can never thank you enough or repay you so I offer you a thank you irom the bottom oi my heart. brothers ... I know you all don't really understand what I do. or whvI do it but thank mu for dealinlr

PAGE 8

with me during this wonderful college experience. A special thank you to Ku rt... Leroy, my littlest brother you are the greatest, you give me the energy to attempt anything and you make being a big brother so much fun. I have had the privileged of in a huge number of activities because of this position, and I feel I have had the privileged of being involved in a few important decisions because of this position. We together we have worked to make Miss-A-Meal a tremendous success, one 1 hope you all continue to push forward. We have worked together to make this senate a respected and efficient body. We have worked to refine ourselves and our actions, to act professional and determined. We have worked together to open the doors to this student body tot he services we offer .However, we are not perfect at this, my last meeting I want to leave you with a few points I wish I could have worked on more. One, we need to understand two simple questions .Questions I never let myself forget. Who are you responsible to? Who are you here to benefit? This senate runs smooth, yet do we really represent the students at this institution? Do we? HOW do we? I feel we have found ourselves in a state of complacency. We have, in my opinion, created an Institution and nothing more. An institution, a place of practice, a behavioral pattern ... now it is my opinion that in representation the last thing you want is this form of an institution. The last thing you want is a predetermined system of reporting perceived student voices. We need to change a few things. We need to get back to basics, look to the simple things. How are you representing your constituents? Are you? I stand here and will tell you that many of you are not representing anyone. If I had to put a number on it I would say that less than 500 students are being directly represented in this senate. Again I ask you... Who are you here to benefit? Who are you responsible to?? Another point I wish you to consider in years ro come is what is the role of this senate? And why are we falling short of fulfilling this role, are we falling short but more importantly, why are we not attempting to ask this question. That is the role of the senate.? Also, We must start acting after considerable thought, thought that is investigative in nature, not thought that leads directly to someone feeling good. Sometimes the best answer is not the answer that makes you feel good. Sometimes you cannot lease everyone, and sometimes you shouldn't. We need to spend some time in introspection, the Senate and SA as a whole. What is the role of the Student Association on this campus? What is our responsibility to the students of SUNY Oswego to our organizations, both in a representative nature and in a monetary one. We cannot continue to spend money on organizations or services that we cannot justify a need for, or justify funding. We need to see where our money is going, and we must be able to answer a student when they ask where it goes. As it stands now I am not sure we can do this. We must go through our budget line by line and ask real questions. We my friends need to start doing real work. This is something I can not do alone, and its not something I expect Kristin or Kevin to do alone, it takes a united action of the entire student association to do. This group, the Student Senate must be the leaders on our campus. This group was organized for such a role, and this group should fulfill its constituted role. IT will take more than just one administration, more than one VP it takes a united effort, an effort that removes personal attachments and interests and effort that truly wants to help and represent the students that I have attempted to represent Saying goodbye is part of a process, a process I don't like. A process that began and seems to continue with an endless cycle of constitutional crisis, and little sleep. I began my involvements with SA as a senator who wanted nothing but this position to be the Vice President, and I end holding the position I wanted. I believe leaving it stronger due entirely to a stronger and more focused Senate. This position has changed my life, and you all have been a part of that. I have come to the realization that the Student Association is more than money its more than clubs and organizations. Its an opportunity tor us a11 to

PAGE 9

learn a lot about ourselves, and as I have said before that these types of involvement opportunities and these types of learning experiences are what college is about. Higher education is no longer just about math and science, English and history. Its about development, it is about becoming the individual you want to be, not becoming the individual an institution was you to be. You see through my involvements here I understand who I am, I know who Greg Lawson is. And I know if you sit back you will see that all of your involvements through SA, clubs orgs, community service, employment, it was those activities are what help create you,. For myself, it was the Student Association that up until this point has help to solidify the person I thought I wanted to be. I hope that your involvements can only be as meaningful and as powerful as mine. I don't know what to say other than thank you all for being there. thank you all for challenging me, and thank you all for dealing with me. But from the bottom of my heart truly and passionately thank you and the students of this wonderful institution for allowing me to serve you. Now that Senator Beck will be running the meetings, this might be the last time i am able to publicly make fun of her. I wont out of respect and admiration to an amazing student, a great friend, a wonderful senator and I predict a perfeci Vice President I must now welcome you to this position and wish you only the best of luck. I thank you all, it has been my pleasure.

The translation is 10 to 15 CD's per department. Account 171 1 is office supplies.

We directed Vagina Monologues and if we had more money we could do more for the community.

Good evening everyone! I want to start by saying how truly excited I am to work with you all for the remainder of the semester and also for those of you returning in the fall. To those of you leaving in May, well let's get that far first. According to the Financial Policy I have until the next Senate meeting to give you my line changes within my budget. By then I will have exactly what I plan on changing. I can tell you now that it is mainly a few word changes under the executive and I am also looking at the Ontarian and its breakup. According to the Student Association Constitution I am required to give my legislative program on the first meeting in office. The dilemma I see with doing just this is that I am not totally certain what the definition of the legislative program is. During the impeachment trial last week it was made clear to me that the impeachment committee interpreted it to be the writing and planning of laws. To me, this seems like an issue that we need to discuss. It is my belief that there should be a separation of powers, why would an executive have to have a legislative program? For the sake of trying to maintain a collaborative mindset with the Senate, this is what I wish to propose. There are many goals that I wish to accomplish as Student Association President, and some of them will require the support of the Senate and may require legislation to do so. My term consists of many executive ideas that at some point may require the passage of a bill. One of the very important pieces that face the Student Association is the deficit for the 2003-2004 fiscal year. One of my goals is to collaborate with the finance committee to reduce the deficit in way that looks at X. alternative solutions and work with senate to devise legislation to makes that happen. Going into next year I want to review the current financial policy. Currently I feel that organizations may require a little more guidance in their budget proposals and their year to year spending. I would also like to look at the set up of the tiered system. To me many questions arise and I feel that there are improvements that could be made. The results of this review will more than likely result in my presentation of legislation that will implement change. I feel that because the Student Association and its clubs and organizations that it funds are made up of students, we should accept the fact that we do make mistakes and we are here to learn from those mistakes. Currently the financial policy states that organizations may be affected financially based on whether they meet their deadlines. I would like to exam the effectiveness of the change in tier status and the decrease in financial funding The effectiveness of the incoming president and vice president can be hindered based on lack of assistance from the outgoing positions, I plan to propose legislation that requires the outgoing president and vice president to work with the incoming positions for a period of time Over the summer I plan to review the constitution to search for parts that need Clarification and in the fall submit changes to the constitution. Some areas include, the Legislative program. Impeachment and election law

PAGE 19

complaints by art students. They want oversized lockers that could fit a portfolio. Parking on campus is still bad. I sit on the Parking Committee and the biggest problem is that faculty see no students on the committee. I want to prove to them that parking is still a problem. I want to have a petition to have everyone sign it saying they are paying too much. The web-site is having technical difficulties. I want to get a reliable source. I want more information on it; off-campus housing, parking etc. At orientation I want to tell incoming freshmen about Senate and the campus.

Billy Nichols-Director of Student Affairs, vote (1 1-2-2) Motion passes. Kristin Beck, Student Association Vice President: Suggests to keep the work that the Policy and Procedure Committees have done on the Constitution and wait until next semester to vote on it. Senator Hershkowitz: I do not agree. Greg Lawson: Think of how confixing it would be to have students voting twice on the same thing. The outcome might not be as great. It might be additional work for Senate. Vice President Beck: I understand a lot of changes have been made. We can retain work that is done and wait until fall. It would make the most sense. Senator Brazee: Can you guarantee that the changes we drafted will be used? Vice President Beck: I can't guarantee anything. Greg Lawson: You can refer to bylaws and make a note of it for the referenda. Vice President Beck: Be prepared for next week's budget meeting. Last year it took twenty-nine minutes but the year before it went until 1 :00 A.M. I encourage you all to be ready so it won't be long. We need to be out of here by 9:00 P.M. If not take recess and go to the Union. Senator Bacalles sent in his resignation. I would like to open the floor for nominations of Involvement Committee Chair.

A discussion and answer followed. VII. Senator Issues Forum Senator Robinson: We respectfully disagree with the Vice President about waiting to approve changes to the Constitution. I've been asked if Sue Weber, the Associate Dean of Education, could come to the April 27th meeting. She would like to discuss academic goals and get our perspectives. It would be an hour presentation including discussion. Senator Hershkowitz: I agree with Senator Robinson. I think we should pass the Constitution bill so we can have more Senators at large. I know many people who want to take advantage of this new system. Senator McCabe: Just out of courtesy I will be late next week. Senator Brazee: For our new Director of Academic Affairs, I am putting together a binder. I am not returning next year. The first thing Vice President Beck should do is invite the Provost to Senate and talk to her about our concerns. Get to know who she is, take an active interest in her job. Mr. Westfall: Senator Robinson there is options for other companies for the online voting system. There's a lot of work to be done. We need to have enough time. Senator Hershkowitz: I think we'll have enough time. So what if they vote twice. They are six months apart. VIII. Committee Reports Policy: Senator Robinson: No meeting this week. Thanks everyone for responding to the GPA question. The President and Vice President need to maintain a 2.5 GPA. I'll be changing it to that. Procedure: Senator Brazee: I went over the removal of committee chairs next week I will be making a list for next semester. Vice President Beck: Open floor for nominations for procedure committee members. Senator Hershkowitz: I nominate Senator Nolan. Senator Robinson second. Motion passes.

Food thing for students at 4:OOP.M. and at 5:00 P.M. the game will start for employees who don't get out of work until then.

PAGE 21

Senator Robinson: Food at 4:00 P.M. and eat when you get there. Senator Lyon: There will no lights at the game. I will get a resolution up for the Mayor about annual softball for every Spring and annual bowling for Fall. IX. Special Orders 1. SLE.39.53 Purchase Order Suspension Authorization Senator Brazee: She already has this ability. We are giving her senators support so we can fix the deficit problem. This is to make sure nobody spends money that we might decrease their budget. President Sutherland: This should be a resolution, not a bill. I could also write an executive order. Dr. Scharfenberger: I suggest you take the executive order if it is easier. He will take the shots, if you'd rather do the bill because it's cleaner for you that's fine. Senator Hershkowitz: The intent is to cover our butts for a week for some options. I think it can go both ways. Senator Brazee: The bill is here, I think this is the easiest way to go. President Sutherland: I thought it would take a little heat off of you. Senator Robinson: It doesn't put heat on one side of government because she does have the authorization to sign it. It gives us the time we need. Senator McCabe: Motion to vote. Senator Nolan second. 12-1 -1 Legislation passes. X. Roll Call: Crocker, McCabe, Stevens, Potak, Love, Brazee, Nolan, Lyon, E.

IV. v. VI. VI1. Call to Order: 6:06 P.M. Roll Call: Crocker, Stevens, Potak, Love, Brazee, Nolan, Lyon, Nichols, Robinson, Steinkraus, Mapes, Metcalf and Hershkowitz. Approval of the Minutes a Senator Robinson: Motion to approve with changes. Senator Nolan second. Approval of Agenda a Senator Stevens: Motion to approve. Senator Crocker second. Public Comment a Sarah Waffle, Rainbow Alliance: I would prefer you to not vote on the budget cut. I didn't receive a memo about this. It's not specified in the bill what will happen to our contracts. Please consider pushing this back to talk to organizations. KaeLyn Rich, Women's Center: I would like to second what Sarah just said. I came here to announce a speaker Katie Kostner who was featured on the cover of Time Magazine along with many others and a movie was made about her. She will be here Thursday 22nd at 7:00 P.M. in 2 13 Hewitt Union. Katy Stevenson, NYPIRG: Board of elections is continuing tomorrow and Thursday. I encourage you to vote who you want to represent you in NYPIRG. Guests of the Senate John Gosek, Mayor of Oswego: This committee was created in the 80's to create better communication between the college and community. They also make sure that the positive things done at the college are recognized. Thank you. Missie Hoefer, CCRT President: We would like you to come to our CCRT meeting and we would like you to have fun. There will be an Exchange Day and Bowling Day in the fall. It is fun for us to participate in your Senate meetings. Senator Lyon, Vice President of CCRT: The softball game is May at 10:OO A.M. It will be the City against the students. It will be more fun than competition. There will be a bowling tournament at the end of the fall semester. Our main goal is getting the City and College to work together. New Legislation 1. RES.39.17 Annual Spring Event Senator Brazee: Motion to pass by acclimation. Senator Robinson second. VIII. Executive Report Kevin Sutherland, Student Association President: Thank you for showing up and participating. We appreciate you being here. Sunday I went to the SAVAC Open House. It was very educational. I met with Chuck Weeks about renovating or replacin the SAVAC garage. Kick-off with the "Friends" display is from tomorrow until June 44 Regarding the Drinking and Driving booth they will need volunteers to sit at the booth. I wasn't aware that the Bill for the budget reduction was on Special Orders. I feel there are other options. It doesn't say how much money will be saved. It doesn't say when it will be taken into account. Student

Assembly was this weekend. The presenters and workshops were good. The only thing is that there was a room full of leaders and no listeners. Greg was elected as treasurer. Senator Hershkowitz: I know this bill is not making people happy we have amendments. President Sutherland: Have you thought about getting a loan? Every day the amount goes down. Partially I should take some of the blame. Senator Hershkowitz: We would save $42,561.93. President Sutherland: What about the organizations that have contracts signed? Kristin Beck, Student Association Vice President: I spent a lot of extra time in the office. Please use the templates for bills. I went with Kevin to Student Assembly. Two resolutions were passed, one which supports legislation within the NYS Legislature that gives the Student Assembly President a seat on the Higher Education Service Corporation, and another which endorses the proposed tuition plan. Please come see me if you would like to read these resolutions. Dessima Niles, Student Association Director of Finance: Hello and welcome everyone for coming here. We can't spend money we don't have. For the organizations we must adjust our budget next year. In terms of contracts you need to see me before you get into any contracts. You learner this at treasuring training. In terms of liability the longer we wait the less money we will have. Some organizations we can hurt more than others. Dr. Scharfenberger: I heard $42,000. What about the rest? Dessima: I am not sure right now. Dr. Scharfenberger: Are there other options on the table? What about raising the activity fee? Dessima: Yes that is an option. IX. Senator Issues Forum Senator Lyon: Motion for a five-minute recess. Senator Brazee second. 6:35 P.M. Vice President Beck: I call the meeting back to order it is 6:4 1 P.M. Senator Brazee: I read the Oswegonian and I was really glad to see someone took notice about the library problem. I appreciate it, I just wish there was a students perspective in the article. I attended the Student Assembly this tuition plan had 5-6 points that were good. I don't agree with this because the bottom says in case of a problem the tuition may be increased. SUNY has more people than all of the people who voted for Governor last year. Next year the problem is getting everyone to register and get them to the polls. The organization that gets the most people in their organization to vote can get a reward. Senator McCabe: Tomorrow is Quest Day and I've never been told in any of my classes when a presentation was at. Students should be made to go to these. Senator Lyon: About the bill and being on Finance Committee why can't they work with SAPB to put on events? Are there other avenues, I don't know? At the conference in Syracuse for Student Assembly I met so many people. I want to get a leadership program started. I was inspired. I want to get involved. I was impressed and I learned a lot from the workshops. Senator Hershkowitz: Nobody wants to see this. It's really crappy. We need to do something to try and fix it. X. Committee Reports Policy: Senator Robinson: There was no meeting this week. There will be a meeting this Friday at 3:00 P.M. Procedure: Senator Brazee: We went over ideas for next year and discussed two bills. Meeting at 9:20 P.M. in the Student Association Conference Room on Monday. Finance: Senator Hershkowitz: Thursday we met for two hours for appeals for the budget. We will be meeting at five again. Involvement: Senator McCabe: We had a meeting to help advertise for tonight's CCRT event. I don't think we should have a meeting next week. Health and Safety: Senator Nichols: We didn't meet last week. There is a resolution on the floor tonight with our name on it. Elections: Senator Robinson: Not present.

PAGE 42

CCRT: Senator Lyon: The softball game is on Saturday May 8th at 10:OO A.M. I would like to get the involvement committee involved. I want it advertised to faculty. XI. Special Orders 1. SLE.39.54 Funding for Adopt-A-Grandparent Senior Ball Senator Hershkowitz: Motion to amend in the following ways: on lines 12, 16, and 17, change the amount from $700 to $500. Senator Robinson second. Senator Potak: I think this is a fair number. I think it will work, if need be they can fundraise what they need. Senator Robinson: Request the chair to take a vote. 12-1 1 Amendment passes. Senator Hershkowitz: The committee split in half about this decision. We don't have the money now. They raised a tremendous amount of money. What example are we setting if we spend money we do not have? Vice President emeritus Lawson: They have not used the Senate as a crutch. They have put a huge amount of work into fund-raising. Everything in their budget has been fundraised. They have raised $2,400 out of $3,180 that is needed to put on this event. That's incredible. It would be a bad move to turn your back on an organization that has worked so hard. Senator Brazee: I concur with Vice President emeritus Lawson. It is an awesome event however we don't have the money. It would be wonderful if we could give them the money. Senator Lyon: I concur. Senator Nolan: I yield my time to Rob Bergan. If they need music we would be more than happy to help any organization. Vice President emeritus Lawson: We have known this for a long time. This is a worthwhile event. They are coming as a last resort to the Senate. Erin Halligan: We have been to many organizations and they said the music would be inappropriate. We found a band and they said they would give us a discount from $3,500 cut to $1,000. Senator Crocker: Being aware of the deficit we need to start somewhere. Senator Brazee: Motion the chair to take a vote. 7-3-4 Legislation passes. 2. SLE.39.57 Budget Reduction FY 2003-2004 Senator Brazee: Motion to amend in the following ways: on lines 8 and 9 strike "all unallocated funds in the Student Association 2003-2004 budget be reduced by 15% and replace it with "all organizations with unallocated funds are to have their budgets reduced by 15%." Senator Robinson second. Dr. Scharfenberger: Point of information to Senator Brazee is it unallocated or unencumbered? Senator Brazee: Change unallocated on amendment to unencumbered Senator Robinson: Request the chair to take a vote. Senator Hershkowitz second. 14-0-0 Amendment passes. Senator Hershkowitz: I would ask for a ten minute recess so everyone can see exactly how much will be cut from each organization. Senator Lyon second. 7: 12 P.M. Vice President Beck: I call the meeting back to order it is 7:23 P.M. Senator McCabe: If we do this 15% cut it would substantially reduce the debt. Senator Steinkraus: We should at least give the organizations some warning. Senator Love: I don't understand why the Budget Council didn't do anything about this. President emeritus Randolph: Nothing about the Budget Council is for the current semester, they deal with next year's budget.

PAGE 43

Senator Robinson: Motion to amend in the following ways: On line 12, add "Money that was deposited through OCT or check cashing." Senator Hershkowitz second. Senator Robinson: This was an issue raised this cut will not touch fund-raised money. It wasn't ours in the first place. Senator Nolan: I yield my time to Bergan. A lot of organizations can't take a cut. Why don't you amend that we decide where the money comes from? Senator Hershkowitz: You asked how much money is not ours. $3,000 out of $42,000. Senator Nolan: Request the chair to take a vote. Senator Robinson second. 14-0-0 Amendment passes. Senator Robinson: To address concern, I understand it's a major hit to some organizations but we don't have any money. I'm sorry. This means a small hit now than a huge hit later. We are even taking money from the executive account. Vice President emeritus Lawson: I'm not going to give you an opinion. This is exactly what we are not supposed to do make a decision without talking to your constituency. They had no opinion. It is more their money than ours. This should be discussed over many weeks and with the backing of the entire student body. Don't do this in the future. Senator Brazee: I yield my time to Jackie. I totally agree with Greg. Four organizations are here. How can you take money and not tell the organizations. You won't have a working radio station if we get cut. Senator Robinson: I yield my time to Dessima. If we have a deficit we will have to cash in CD's and we'll have interest added onto our payments. WNYO you guys purchased a computer that cut will not affect your equipment. Louie Cavalini: A lot of organizations don't know about this. This will hurt many organizations that are planning closing ceremonies. It's too quick for an action. Senator McCabe: We take a small hit now or a huge hit next year. I understand there are end of the year things but that money is not there. It doesn't exist. Senator Nolan: I yield my time to Eve of SAVAC. There is a lack of communication. I understand why it was not brought up to us. It is frustrating that people are voting on something that they don't understand. Senator Stevens: Senator Hershkowitz what are your thoughts about referring for one week? Senator Hershkowitz: The good points: we can send out memos to organizations tonight about exactly what's going on. Bad: it gives us less money to cut and put towards the deficit. The stuff we are not touching is payroll, CD's and contracts. President emeritus Randolph: There are other alternatives: increasing the Student Activity fee or increasing the income lines of organizations. The 15% isn't going to fix the problem only reduce it. Senator Nichols: To Senator Hershkowitz what were the other options? Senator Hershkowitz: Increase the Student Activity fee, freeze accounts completely or get a loan. We do not agree with them at all. This seemed the best one but it's really crappy. This was not taken lightly. Senator Nichols: I yield my time for each club that is here. What would your feelings be if you take a hit this year or next year? Bergan: Next year because we would have time to prepare for it. Maybe 7.5% now and 7.5% later. Women's Center: I would rather it is cut next year to work together with Student Association. Most organizations would be able to fund-raise and work together. It's unfair. There needs to be communication. SAVAC: We have a different situation than the organizations, we have ordered our supplies for next year already. Secretary of Storytellers Guild: It would be much easier and we could prepare better if it was cut next year. You only gave us a week notice.

PAGE 44

Rainbow Alliance: Next year because we know what to expect. What about the 100 organizations that are not here tonight? Latino Student Union: We would appreciate the cut for next year because we can prepare for it. It's kind of hard to tell our members we can't have our programs. Senator Nichols: Hearing all of this I would like to call to question. Senator Brazee second: 4-10-0 Motion fails. Senator Love: I agree with Greg, we can't vote on this if we don't know what the organizations think. Taking money this year will screw them over more this year than next year. President Sutherland: The lack of communication needs to be fixed. If you guys vote yes I am going to veto it. Senator Potak: It would cause a lot of harm. We would get much less respect from the student body. If organizations get one week to understand what is going on. We must vote no and see what else we can to reduce the debt. Senator Crocker: Motion to refer to finance for one week. Senator Robinson: Object. 5-8-1 Motion fails. Proxy Metcalf: Since it's the organizations money it should be their decision if it is taken now, later or 7.5% and 7.5%. Use this one-week to your advantage. If it is seen in the Oswegonian people will be interested and let the majority decide what is more convenient for them. Vice President emeritus Lawson: You have known this for the month maybe longer. When have you sat down with the students who pay the Student Activity fee? Under assumption they can spend their money. You are taking a leap in the dark. We are unsure of what we are doing. So many questions, so many unanswered questions. We don't have the backing of our constituents. When you vote imagine every person you represent standing behind you. Good luck. Senator Brazee: Greg's right. When the vote comes up I am voting no. I call to question. Senator Robinson second. 12-1-1 Motion passes. 0-8-6 Legislation fails. XII. General Orders 1. SLE.39.5 1 2004-2005 Student Association Budget Senator Hershkowitz: Motion to amend in the following ways: Equestrian Team: add $1 50 to account 1360, Insurance. 13-0-1 Amendment passes. WNYO: change the name of account 1708 from Conventions to Concert Manager Salary 12-1 -0 Amendment passes. Add $100 to account 17 1 1, Office Supplies. 12-01 Amendment passes. Concert Band: Add $2,000 to account 2102, Equipment.. Senator Robinson: We didn't understand their inventory so we gave them no money. From my understanding they had no inventory, it was a paperwork problem. President emeritus Randolph: They had bought instruments that were under a certain amount, so no paperwork was filed for those purchases. 12-01 Amendment passes. Coll./Comm. Orchestra: Add $200 to account 2202, Equipment. Senator Nichols: We felt they were paying for personal items. Have these been purchased in the previous years? President emeritus Randolph: Yes. 12-2-0 Amendment passes.

SAVAC: Add $750 to account 3200, Radio Maintenance. Senator Hershkowitz: The increase is given to buy new equipment to better their organization. I yield my time to SAVAC. Thank you very much. I am glad everyone understands. Senator Nolan: SAVAC saves lives yo! 14-0-0 Amendment passes. Women's Center: Add $700 to account 33 1 1, V-Day.

(see attached) President emeritus Randolph: Increase the fee to $4.08. $57,000 to create a new account saying debt management. Wait one week and think about it. Senator Robinson: I have a major problem. I am not going to support raising the Student Activity fee we should find another way. President emeritus Randolph: The Student Activity fee hasn't even kept up with inflation. It might be bad PR but this might be the best thing. Senator Hershkowitz: I agree with Senator Robinson. I don't think we should increase the fee to fix the deficit. Senator Potak: I don't think we should raise the Student Activity fee. Maybe next year, raising it $5.00 won't break anyone's account. I wouldn't get too worked up about it. President emeritus Randolph is right about the Student Activity fee not keeping up with inflation. Senator Crocker: I feel we are here for the students. Re-refer to finance for one week. Senator Nolan second. Joanna Besaw: No one looks at it anyway. Nobody is going to care. Senator Nichols: Objection. I don't think we should refer it.

IV. v. VI. VII. Call to Order: 6:05 P.M. Roll Call: McCabe, Stevens, Potak, Love, Brazee, Nolan, Lyon, Nichols, Robinson, Steinkraus, Mapes, Robinson, Hershkowitz and Westfall. Approval of the Minutes Senator Crocker: Motion to approve. Senator Robinson second. Approval of Agenda Senator Robinson: Motion to approve. Senator Nichols second. Public Comment Katy Stevenson, and Board Representatives Mary and Andrea, NYPIRG: We have the off-campus landlord evaluations. They had questions that students interested in living off-campus ask. Guests of the Senate Susan Weber, Associate Dean, School of Education: She gathered information from the senators by asking them broad questions about their goals in education, what the purpose of the education at SUNY Oswego, what is a learning centered education and what is the relationship between out-ofclass experiences and in-class experiences. They ask these questions to faculty, staff and students and over the summer they will find common themes. The results will be brought to us in the Fall. Executive Report Kevin Sutherland, Student Association President: Went over the Student Association Budget as of April 22,2004. See attached. He will only allow people to spend money if it is an emergency or for a planned event. He met with Phil Rankin and answered questions about the budget. Thank You card from Arts Alive. We received a Community Service Certificate of Appreciation. The technology in the Student Association office will be better. They are moving out Macs and putting in PC's. The athletic fee will be increased $20.00 to stay out of the red for the next three years. The Student Health Advisory Committee increased $30.00. He discussed the many changes that Auxiliary Services will be making for next semester. Only twenty seniors had their pictures taken so they scrapped it. He wants to get the Alumni to help put the yearbook together for next year. They have the power to contact the parents and Campus Life. See attached for the budget. Saturday night the Black Student Union is having a party. The Policy Committee idea

PAGE 52

more seats doesn't mean more participation. Maybe off-campus forum is a way to increase involvement. The idea from the finance sub-committee needs to be decided by my e-board. They are paid to do that job. Senator Steinkraus: Where did you get the $1.50 increase? President Sutherland: The organizations felt strongly about this. May Day is Thursday hopefully people will buy tickets to the concert. Andy Drogo: Where is May Day going to happen? SAVAC: The rides and entertainment will be in the quad and food in the Union and outside of Culkin. Kristin Beck, Student Association Vice President: The Student Involvement Awards are tomorrow. Next Tuesday night is the Concert Band in Waterman Theater at 8:00 P.M. About the Constitution I am uncomfortable with the idea of a fall referendum, do you have a time line, plans? Kevin and I haven't been informed about anything. We are not sure what is going on and we are going to have to deal with this next year. Will there be enough time to promote it? In three weeks senators will be coming in and they won't have knowledge of this. The policy and procedure committee will be going over the constitution. We can't make changes halfway through the year. Why do they have to be made now? What difference is five months going to make anyway? Reconsider your thoughts now. I don't approve of it being passed tonight. Senator Hershkowitz: It was discussed in detail at the procedure committee with senators at large. Senator Robinson: We are pushing them because policy spent the whole year working on them. By-law amendments are going to be attached and it doesn't say when. About not being informed the meetings are open to anyone. Senator Hershkowitz: My intention was to attach it with Senator elections and have it at the beginning of the semester. Vice President Beck: Are the two elections going to happen at the same time? Senator Hershkowitz: We have e-board members and returning senators that will know what to do. VIII. Senator Issues Forum Senator Hershkowitz: We have this finance problem. Thanks President Sutherland you have done a great job so far. Senator Robinson: This has been an interesting two years in senate. It has been a wonderful experience, thank you. Senator Steinkraus: It was a great play this weekend awesome job. IX. Committee Reports Policy: Senator Robinson: I recommend to the finance committee to recommend the members read the income lines of the budget. Asking $250.00 from organizations is too much. Procedure: Senator Brazee: The committee structure bill is a pretty strong bill and I hope to pass it. Finance: Senator Hershkowitz: 1% and raise the Student Activity Fee to $1 SO. President Sutherland recommended putting money into the executive

PAGE 53

X. XI. account but I don't agree with that or my committee. Put it into account 6501 and we can't touch it until we buy radios for SAVAC and pass it in legislation. Due to the freeze in the accounts the committee recommends failing most of the legislation. Thank you for a job well done Finance Committee. Involvement: Senator McCabe: There was no meeting last week. Health and Safety: Senator Nichols: It has been a good year. I am passing down a box with a letter explaining it. Elections: Senator Robinson: We are preparing for the election in the fall. CCRT: Senator Lyon: We are having a problem with City Council for softball. They don't want it to cut into their family time. The City will supply the food. Over the summer there will be a children's Summer Reading Hour and maybe a relay. This will help keep them out of trouble and get them involved on Churchill Road. Special Orders Senator Robinson: These are the best times we can do it. Senator Brazee second. 15-0-0 Legislation passes. General Orders 1. SLE.39.34 Constitution Referendum Language Senator Robinson: Motion to amend in the following ways. Senator Nichols second. Senator Hershkowitz: Do we want to have it in the fall? I think it's feasible. I don't think we should be afraid of changing. This is a way of us evolving. Senator McCabe: Is there any way to get at large senators trained? If not, we should save it for March. President Emeritus Randolph: I think it's a horrible thing. It appears there is no problem when there is. Maybe rework our strategies and get more off-campus students. Senator Nichols: I think this should take place so we can approve it. President Emeritus Randolph: This constitution has been approved. Vice President Emeritus Randolph: Yes the constitution should be brought to the students before approving it. President Emeritus Randolph: I thought the constitution has been brought to the referenda. Senator Nolan: Motion the chair to call a question. Senator Robinson second. 141-0 Motion passes. 9-41 Amendment passes. Senator Nolan: Motion to suspend the rules and change the agenda and move to end of General Orders after SLE.39.63. Senator Hershkowitz second. 2. SLE.39.5 1 2004-2005 Student Association Budget

PAGE 54

Senator Hershkowitz: Motion to amend in the following ways. New totals for the following accounts 3503 $3,600,3600 $24,000,4 100 $17,000, 4200 $28,000,6507 $3,000. Account 6501 gains the $1 1,000 from these cuts. We cut some slush funds and decided on SAPB. Dr. Scharfenberger: Any considerations for cash reserve. It is part of the amendments for this bill. Senator Hershkowitz: I don't think so. We are just moving them. Senator Nichols: Motion to take a vote. Senator Nolan second. 1 4-01 Amendment passes. Senator Robinson: Motion to amend in the following ways. (see attached Amendments to Budget) Senator Nolan second. Senator McCabe: I don't like the increased fee without asking them. President Sutherland: That's why I had the meeting with organizations and students' ands they were comfortable with it. I think this is a good move. Senator Steinkraus: My hall council voted 100% for the increase. Senator Nolan: I yield my time to SAVAC. We would much rather pay $1 SO than get our budget cut. Senator Love: I brought it up in hall council and they said raise it as much as we need. President Emeritus Randolph: Our job is to provide services to students. I think we need this increase to maintain this level of organization functions. Senator Lyon: I did speak with off-campus students and they don't do anything on campus and they don't want to pay the increase. They didn't want the College Hour either. I'm voting no because of them. Senator Nolan: Off-campus students I know are more involved and they want to continue their activities. There are off-campus students who agree with this. Senator Brazee: Motion the chair to take a vote. Senator Robinson second. 121-1 Amendment passes. Senator Robinson: Motion the chair to take a vote. Senator Nolan second. 13-01 Legislation passes. 3. SLE.39.55 ~uidin~ for-crew Club Ergs Senator McCabe: I yield my time to Jay McCaffiey. It's training equipment for the winter months. We are trying to get the docks repaired. We have no money set aside for equipment. 7:30 to 10:OO P.M. is practice to serve crew members better. It is in our best interests to have these machines. Senator Hershkowitz: Unfortunately we have a freeze. The finance committee recommends failing this bill but passing the next bill coming up. Hopefidly there will be enough money at the end to buy the ergs. President Sutherland: I concur. I would veto this if you passed it. They have more important things to take of. Senator Nolan: Request the chair to take a vote. Senator McCabe second. Senator Potak: I object. What fundraising have you done?

PAGE 55

Jay McCaffrey: A car wash that was rained out and a 50150 raffle that half went to Camp Hollis. Senator Robinson: Motion to call a question. Senator Brazee second. 012-3 Legislation fails. 4. SLE.39.56 Oswego State Crew Club Transfer Authorization Senator McCabe: It does have to go to emergency funding towards a motor that we need by law. Senator Hershkowitz: It's only a funds transfer. I would approve it. Senator Nichols: Request the chair to take a vote. Senator Nolan second. 13-0-2 Legislation passes. 5. SLE.39.58 Geology Club Picnic Senator Hershkowitz: We can't really pay for it. The committee recommends fail it. Senator Robinson: Request the chair to take a vote. Senator Nolan second. 0141 Legislation fails. 6. SLE.39.59 Paintball Club Target Range Senator Hershkowitz: They might put their own money towards this for May Day. Same thing please fail. Request the chair to take a vote. Senator Nolan second. 013-2 Legislation fails. 7. SLE.39.60 Women's Center Funds Authorization Senator Hershkowitz: They do need a computer but they are going to have to wait. Please fail. Motion the chair to take a vote. Senator Crocker second. 01 1-4 Legislation fails. 8. SLE.39.6 1 Amendment to SLE.38.5 1 Student Association Committee Structure Senator Brazee: Motion to amend in the following ways. Strike lines 9-1 3 and 16-19. At line 14, #5 becomes #4. At line 16, change to: a.. For missing or canceling more than one (1) meeting of their given committee a semester. b. For not keeping an accurate attendance record of their given committee. c. For not fulfilling their responsibilities as outlined in Section 11 of this law as pertaining to the committee they chair. If you have a set number of meetings say five you have to go to four. Senator Nichols: The way I see it is you have to go to every scheduled meeting and only canceling once. I would suggest without it because the bi-weekly explains it well. Senator McCabe: There should be some kind of clause in there that says for documented emergency. Senator Hershkowitz: The committee is making the decision to cancel the meeting. Senator Nolan: There is no requirement. Dr. Scharfenberger: It might be wise to have the Vice President make a discretionary decision by adding an excused absence.

PAGE 56

Senator Robinson: Request the chair to take a vote. Senator Nolan second. 141-0 Amendment passes. Senator Brazee: I appreciate Dr. Scharfenberger's concerns. I think it is all right as it stands. Vice President Emeritus Lawson: Part A needs to be shortened up. Senator Hershkowitz: I concur with Vice President Emeritus Lawson. He talked about my exact concerns. Motion for a five-minute recess. 9:08 P.M. President Beck: I call the meeting back to order at 9: 16 P.M. Senator Nolan: Motion to amend in the following ways. Strike lines 22, 23,24 & 25,26 & 27,28-31. Senator Hershkowitz: We should vote on those separately, starting with 22 and 23. Senator Robinson: Request the chair to take a vote. 15-0-0 Amendment passes. (to strike lines 22 and 23. Senator Nolan: I feel the committee members should be the only members to remove chairs. Senator Robinson: I concur because they would be most educated about the chair. Senator Crocker: Request the chair to take a vote. Senator Hershkowitz: I object. Senator Nichols: I think we should strike it since it goes against our constitution. Senator Hershkowitz: Let it come to the floor and fail. I think we should strike this part. Senator Brazee: I concur with Senator Hershkowitz. Rationality will prevail. Love will conquer. Senator Steinkraus: I concur with Senator Brazee. Senator McCabe: Request the chair to take a vote. Senator Nolan second. 14-0-1 Amendment passes. (to strike lines 24 and 25) Senator Hershkowitz: 26 and 27.

PAGE 57

9. SLE.39.62 Ad-Hoc Academic Advisement Committee Senator Brazee: This is not an amendment to the committee structure. This is another root for getting involved in academic questions other than Faculty Assembly. Senator Robinson: Motion to amend in the following ways. Strike line 3 1 and delete the word "and" at the end of line 30. Add at line 23 the words "Student Association Committee Structure" after the bill number SLE.38.51. On line 23 change the word "three" to "four." I changed it to make the faculty and student numbers the same. Senator Nolan second. Senator McCabe: Motion the chair to take a vote. Senator Nolan second. 15-0-0 Amendment passes. Senator Robinson: I love this bill. Thanks Senator Brazee for your help. Please vote yes. Senator Hershkowitz: point of information to the authors when would this Ad-Hoc Committee take place. Vice resident Emeritus Lawson: There are some concerns I have. This committee may not know that the Faculty Assembly has many councils that students sit on. We will have a Director of Academic Affairs who will do this. My major concern is its goals are not defined. This might be premature. Its power and jurisdiction is not defined. The discussion in this committee can be held in other committees and we have a director to address these concerns. Senator Steinkraus: I concur with Vice President Emeritus Lawson. Who finds the faculty? Senator Brazee: I would hope the committee would do this themselves. I had a list of professors I would recommend them to ask. Senator Nichols: I am for this. Why can't we have two branches look at academics? Mr. Westfall: I am not sure it is complete. To create it at this point it's not necessary. President Sutherland: That is why I brought back this position. Vice President Emeritus Lawson: This committee has no authority. The committee members don't even have to go to the meetings. We need to currently work with what we are doing now. I think we need to keep this idea and maybe see where it goes in the future. It can be done under the Director of Academic Affairs. Senator Robinson: Motion for a ten-minute recess. Senator Hershkowitz second. 950 P.M. Vice President Beck: I call the meeting back to order at 10:OO P.M. Senator Nichols: More bodies can't help. Senator Brazee: The bill has been written a little hastily. Request the chair to take a vote. Senator Robinson second. 4-7-3 Legislation fails.

10. SLE.39.63 Phi Beta Lambda National Competition Senator Hershkowitz: Same situation as last year. They did not put in money at that time. Right now we don't have the money. Senator Robinson: Request the chair to take a vote. Senator Potak second. 0131 Legislation fails. 1 SLE. 39.34 Constitution Referendum Language Senator Brazee: Motion to withdraw the amendment. Vice President Beck: When you table a bill at the end of a legislative session it is unable to be brought back to the floor for the next session. Senator Robinson: Request the chair to take a vote. Senator Brazee second. 0-1 2-2 Legislation fails. XII. New Legislation 1. RES.39.18 Thank You Joshua Brazee Senator Crocker: I love this resolution. I think I would like to take over his position. We are going to miss Senator Robinson. He has done so much and he has only been here for about a year. Senator Potak: Motion to pass by acclimation. Senator Crocker second. 2. RES.39.19 Thank You Eric Robinson Senator Hershkowitz: Eric has been awesome. It is his second year here and he has done an awesome job. He has been a role model and leader. Senator Crocker: Working on Policy Committee you did a good job and it's sad to see you go. Vice President Emeritus Lawson: He deserves this and a little bit more. Senator Potak: You were so incredibly active. You're an amazing chair. You did everything to your best. You have submitted so much legislation and are so involved. Thank you. Senator Nichols: It's kind of sad to see him go. He took me in and showed me the ropes. He was not only a mentor but also a friend. Motion to ass by acclimation. Senator Potak second. XII.

Call to Order: 6:03 P.M. Roll Call: McCabe, Stevens, Love, Nolan, Lyon, Brazee, Nichols, E. Robinson, Steinkraus, Mapes, S. Robinson, Hershkowitz, and Westfall. Executive Report Kevin Sutherland, Student Association President: The Director of Finance of the Fiscal year starts July 1''. If we don't appoint her she doesn't get paid. Kevin read letter from Nancy Smith, regarding her appointment for the position of Director of Finance for 2004-2005. Senator McCabe: Motion for approval. Senator Nolan second. 11-0-2 Motion passes. General Orders 1. VETO: SLE.39.61 Amendment to SLE.39.51 Student Association Committee Structure See attached. President Sutherland: There are too many questions. We should add parts that allow room if emergencies occur. Senator Robinson: Does it interfere with the Committee Structure bill? Does it leave an out? This does seem legitimate besides going through the entire impeachment process. Senator Nichols: It did happen this year. It would have solved a problemwith impeachment. Senator Hershkowitz: I would hope the senate would use proper judgment. The hearing is before senate itself. We have to do what is right. Senator Stevens: The senate will decide if they are guilty or not. Senator Brazee: Are we allowed to amend. I don't disagree with your concerns. When it was written only the members of the committee could vote. Anybody can do it. Principles of reason don't always come through. So the senate needs to decide. President Sutherland: It isn't in my view strong. Senator Nichols: You are going through the checks and balance process. Granted if someone in his or her family died senate would know. Senator Brazee: My committee wrote this bill and the questions are valid. The original intent has changed. I agree with the Presidents veto.

PAGE 62

Senator Nichols: it still has to go through a senator and the senate. It is not a bad thing. This would give the committee chair removal within one week. They have time to create a defense. President Sutherland: Working on the image of Student Association if this issue comes up. This bill will go into the books. Is that what we want? Senator McCabe: In favor of reinforcing Kevin's veto and have someone work on it over the summer. Senator Hershkowitz: I don't have to worry about looking down the road if it's necessary. We have to be careful. Senator Nolan: Motion the chair to take a vote. Senator Nichols: I object. Senator Robinson: Motion to call a question. 11 -2-0 Motion passes, veto is overturned. V. Roll Call: McCabe, Stevens, Love, Nolan, Lyon, Brazee, Nichols, E. Robinson, Steinkraus, Mapes, S. Robinson, Hershkowitz, and Westfall. VI. Adjournment Senator Nolan: Motion to adjourn.

DRAFT STUDENT ASSOCIATION OF THE STATE UNIVERSITY COLLEGE AT OS WEGO MANAGEMENT SUGGESTIONS * JULY 2003

PAGE 63

DRAFT July 22,2003 To the Student Senate of the Student Association of the State University College at Oswego In connection with our audit of the financial statements of the Student Association of the State University College at Oswego (the "Association") for the year ended June 30,2003, we noted certain matters that we believe you should consider. Our observations were formed as a by-product of our audit procedures, which did not include a comprehensive review for the purpose of submitting detailed recommendations. The comments that follow summarize our comments and suggestions: 1. REQUIRE STUDENT ORGANIZATION REPRESENTATIVE TO SIGN INTERn OFFICE DEPOSIT SLIP. As organizations raise or collect funds they are required to deposit the monies at the check cashing office. A pre-numbered three (3) part inter-office deposit slip is prepared by the Check Cashing Clerk who then initials the deposit slip. The student organization representative does not receive a copy of the deposit slip at the window. One (1) part goes into a safety deposit box with the deposit and the other two (2) are given to the Finance Manager. The Finance Manager retains one (1) copy and delivers the other copy to the respective organization via their mailboxes in the student associations office. We recommend that the student organization representative be required to sign the inter-office deposit slip prepared by the Check Cashing Clerk indicating their agreement with the amount deposited. 2. ENSURE PROPER APPROVAL OF EMPLOYEE TIMESHEETS. As part of the Association's internal controls, Co-Managers are required to approve and sign employee timesheets. During our audit procedures, we noted two (2) timesheets that did not have the appropriate Co-Manager approval. We discussed this with the Student Services Manager and noted the first timesheet was during the school year and the A approval was inadvertently missed. The second timesheet was during the summer when Co-Managers may not have been available to approve the timesheet. The Student Services Manager informed us that she reviews the timesheet for reasonableness before processing.

PAGE 64

2DRAFT In the absence of the Co-Manager's approval during the summer months, we recommend that the Student Services Manager review the timesheets and initial them indicating her review. Additionally, during the school year, the Student Services Manager should ensure the Co-Manager's approval of the timesheet before processing. 3. CONTINUE TO DEVELOP AN ACCOUNTING MANUAL FOR THE ASSOCIATION. During our audit, we found the Association does not have a comprehensive accounting manual. We recommend that the Association continue to develop a comprehensive accounting manual that would include the following areas: a) Job descriptions for all Association accounting staff, outlines of operational procedures, including those performed by the outside bookkeeper; b) Descriptions of the various programs, clubs and activities; c) Definitions and descriptions of all general ledger accounts, in addition to a chart of accounts for the Association; d) Description of the sources of entries to general ledger, including accounting journals prepared and maintained monthly and annually; e) Control functions, including required approvals on source documents and reconciliations; and f) Any information considered necessary for consistent accounting treatment of transactions made by the Association. The principal advantages and benefits to be derived from such a manual are as follows: a) Promote consistency and uniformity in the treatment of accounting transactions; b) Provide guidance and reference for all persons performing related functions, including coordination between fimctions performed by Association staff and those provided by the outside bookkeeper; c) Decrease training costs by providing guidance during periods of employee absence or annual turnover of the Director of Finance; and d) Provide opportunities for constructive improvement of present procedures through periodic review of the accounting manual.

-3DRAFT In accordance with professional standards, our consideration of the internal control structure was solely for the purpose of determining our auditing procedures for the purpose of our report on the financial statements and not to provide assurance on the internal control structure and would not necessarily disclose all matters that might be reportable conditions. In addition, because of inherent limitations in any internal control structure, errors or irregularities may occur and not be detected by such control structure. This report is intended solely for the information and use of the Members of the Student Senate, Management and others within the Association and is not intended to be and should not be used by anyone other than these specified parties.

DRAFT STUDENT ASSOCIATION OF THE STATE UNIVERSITY COLLEGE AT OSWEGO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS * JUNE 30,2003 AND 2002

PAGE 67

DRAFT Independent Auditor' s Report July 22,2003 To the Board of Directors and Student Senate of the State University College at Oswego We have audited the accompanying statements of financial position of the Student Association of the State University College at Oswego as of June 30, 2003 and 2002, and the related statements of activities and cash flows for the years then ended. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Association's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits. We conducted our audits in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America. Those standards require that we plan and perform the CA audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion. As more fully described in Note 1 to the financial statements, prior to the year ended June 30, 2002, the Association charged operations with expenditures for property and equipment that, in our opinion, should have been capitalized in order to conform to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. As it had always been the policy of the Association not to capitalize such expenditures, it is not practicable to determine the effects of the unrecorded assets on the financial statements. In our opinion, except for the effects of not capitalizing expenditures for property and equipment as discussed in the preceding paragraph, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Student Association of the State University College at Oswego as of June 30, 2003 and 2002, and the changes in its net assets and its cash flows for the years then ended in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. #'As discussed in Note 1 to the financial statements, the Association prospectively changed its accounting policy regarding property and equipment in 2002.

DRAFT STUDENT ASSOCIATION OF THE STATE UNIVERSITY COLLEGE AT OSWEGO NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS Note 1 Summarv of significant accounting policies The Student Association of the State University College at Oswego (the "Association") is comprised of various organizations carrying on student and academic activities at the State University College at Oswego, New York (the "College"). These activities are financed in part from the proceeds of mandatory fees levied each semester on students in attendance at the College. Disbursement of the fees collected is made in accordance with an annual budget adopted by the student senate. Basis of accounting The financial statements of the Association have been prepared on the accrual basis of accounting and, accordingly, reflect all significant receivables, payables and other liabilities. The more significant accounting policies are as follows: Basis of presentation The accompanying financial statements have been prepared under guidelines set forth in the Financial Accounting Standards Board's Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (SFAS) No. 117, "Financial Statements of Not-For-Profit Organizations." Under this pronouncement, the Association is required to report information regarding its financial position and activities according to three (3) classes of net assets: unrestricted net assets, temporarily restricted net assets and permanently restricted net assets. *r, Unrestricted net assets Unrestricted net assets consist of the current operating activities of the Association's budgetary funds. The amounts are unrestricted and are available for the support of operations. The Association had no temporarily or permanently restricted net assets as of June 30,2003 and 2002. Reserve for encumbrances Encumbrances represent obligations, such as purchase orders or other commitments outstanding at year-end for materials or services not yet received and are recorded as a designation of unrestricted net assets. Designated net assets The Association is required to maintain ten percent (10%) or a minimum of $125,000 of the total predetermined revenues of the Association as designated net assets for reserve requirements at all times. Income taxes The Association is exempt from Federal income tax under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and under similar provisions of the New York State not-for-profit corporation law. Accordingly, no provision has been made for Federal or state income taxes. Cash and cash equivalents For purposes of the statements of cash flows, the Association considers all highly liquid investments with a maturity of three (3) months or less when purchased to be cash equivalents. Investments Investments represent certificates of deposit having original maturities p4 beyond three (3) months and are stated at cost plus accrued interest, which approximates market value.

PAGE 72

-2DRAFT Concentration of credit risk The Association maintains cash balances and investments in certificates of deposit at several financial institutions. Cash and certificates of deposit in excess of m the amount insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation are subject to credit risk. During the fiscal year ended June 30, 2002, the Association executed a collateral agreement with one financial institution whereby the bank has pledged certain securities to collateralize any balance the Association has on deposit at that institution in excess of the Federal deposit insurance limit. The Association had no uninsured cash or certificates of deposit balances at June 30, 2003, and 2002. Accounts receivables Accounts receivable represents amounts due from the College associated with the mandatory fees levied each semester on students in attendance at the College. Accounts receivable are stated at the amount management expects to collect from outstanding balances. Management provides for probable uncollectible amounts through a provision for bad debt expense based on its assessment of the current status of individual accounts. Property and equipment During the fiscal year ended June 30, 2002, in order to conform with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, the Association adopted an accounting policy that prospectively requires purchases of property and equipment of $500 or more be capitalized and depreciated. Depreciation expense is calculated using the straight-line method over an asset's useful life, which currently ranges from three (3) to seven (7) years. Prior to the fiscal year ended June 30, 2002, the Association charged operations with A expenditures for property and equipment that, in our opinion, should have been capitalized in order to conform with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. As it had always been the policy of the Association not to capitalize such expenditures, it is not practicable to determine the effects of the unrecorded assets on the financial statements. The effect on the change in net assets of prospectively adopting the capitalization policy was to increase the change in net assets by $92,483 for the fiscal year ended June 30,2002. Property and equipment consisted of the following: Equipment Computers Less Accumulated depreciation June 30, Depreciation expense reflected in the statements of activities for the years ended June 30,2003 and 2002, was $24,574 and $13,411, respectively.

PAGE 73

-3DRAFT Retirement plan -The Association maintains a qualified defined contribution plan (the "Plan"), which provides for employee contributions under Section 403(b) of the Internal Revenue e Code. The Plan covers all full-time employees of the Association. The Association contributed approximately $6,900 and $5,800 to the Plan on behalf of the employees for the years ended June 30,2003 and 2002, respectively. Use of estimates The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of support, revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Note 2 Commitments and contingencies For the fiscal year ended June 30, 2002, the Association paid $15,500 for accounting services to Auxiliary Services of the State University College at Oswego, Inc. ("Auxiliary Services"). Additionally, the Association purchased approximately $37,000 and $45,000 in dining services from Auxiliary Services for the fiscal years ended June 30, 2003 and 2002, respectively. During the fiscal year ended June 30, 2002, the Association received a $20,000 donation from Auxiliary Services for the purchase of a campus ambulance. The Association entered into an agreement in July 2002 with Centro of Oswego, Inc. ("Centro") to provide regular route service to students for discounted rates. In consideration of bP this, the Association agreed to subsidize Centro for these services. The agreement required the Association to make five (5) payments of $14,000 in fiscal 2003. Additionally, the agreement requires the Association to make five (5) payments of $14,900 in fiscal 2004. The Association paid $24,108 and $51,632 to The New York Public Interest Research Group, Inc. (the "NYPIRG) for the fiscal years ended June 30,2003 and 2002, respectively. The Association had an annual agreement with NYPIRG to pay them $4 per student each fall and spring semester through May 31, 2002, for use in providing legitimate services and materials necessary to carry out the research, co-curricular programming and public interest goals of NYPIRG. The Association did not enter into an agreement with NYPIRG during the fall semester for the fiscal year ended June 30,2003. An agreement was entered into for the spring semester of 2003. The Association paid $71,400 and $61,876 to the College for various expenses associated with the campus intramural and recreation programs for the fiscal years ended June 30, 2003 and 2002, respectively. The Association has entered into a similar agreement for the fiscal year ending June 30,2004, requiring four (4) equal payments of $17,500.

Executive Report Brian Randolph, Student Association President: He is extremely busy with being president. Miss-A-Meal is on the 2oth the goal is $5,000, it starts the 17'~. He is bringing another Supreme Court Justice next week. The provost search committee is going well. He might be looking at applications in Culkin so if you cannot reach him he should be there. The impeachment law seems good. Cap for carbon dioxide emissions looks OK. I hope that goes well. Where do we want to go with the hazing bill as a student organization? Gregory Lawson, Student Association Vice President: We started late tonight. Remember the meeting start at 6:00 P.M. Senate dinner is before the meeting and attendance is low. It is important to go. Make sure you are going to your committee meetings. Sign-up for Miss-A-Meal they are in half an hour slots. You just ask every person who walks in to sign up for it. Everyone has enough time to work one half an hour shift. Dan Preston has put a lot of work on this before you received this bill. They are promoting this to the campus community. Senator Issues Forum Senator McClain: The NYPIRG book exchange is a good idea. Senator Hershkowitz: I was walking down the street today when I saw three people in a black car swerving and splashed my white pants while shouting profanities at me. It is pretty sad.

VIII. IX. Senator Robinson: I am creating an interdisciplinary with Dr. Murphy. An ENG 395 course where senators and the executive board can get credit for doing work for student senate. It is an option not required. It is a way that we could get credit for doing senate work. Senator Brazee: His time is spread pretty thin working with many organizations. He agrees with the class. He managed to go to the 7th Grade Science Fair, he commends the Shawn Cassidy Fan Club for their creativity. He hopes to see more organizations doing things like that. Senator Nichols: Happy Veterans Day! Think of a Veteran who serviced for our country. Senator Robinson: How is everyone's hall council going? Mine is going well. If you need suggestions talk to me after the meeting. Committee Reports Policy: 39.14 we recommend passage with amendment. We are done reviewing the constitution. They have a lot of amendments. They are still working on the mission statement. If you have any ideas go to the next meeting. Procedure: I think we have a solid document right now. There are a few things we could contest that we have questions on. Finance: They are finishing up the charters. The bill will be ready next week. They are focusing on the report the Vice President gave us. Involvement: Next week we want to take pictures to put in the display. Meet on Thursday at 6:30 P.M. in Funnelle.

Passes Senator Bacalles: the purpose of the bill is to say we agree with Pataki, it is unnecessary. Senator Hershkowitz: it tells him that it is what we want to happen Seantor Potak: it is something that would help us Resolution passes 14-0-2 5. RES.39.04 Student Associations Continued Support of Campus and Community Efforts against Hazing Senator Robinson: this is important; there have been problems in other SUNY schools. We are taking precautions that it doesn't happen. Also to show that the campus efforts are not going unnoticed. Senator Hershkowitz: I have problems with this, it is implied that we agree with the no hazing policy, it is in the rules. President Randolph: why do we need to say this? Maybe if we were Plattsburgh but its not relevant. The wording is unusual it's assertive for a resolution. I don't think this is necessary. Senator Nichols: I concur with Senator Hershkowitz. Senator Somerset: hazing is done on campus. It may be comforting to someone who has been a victim of hazing that we don't support it. Senator Brazee: It seems redundant unless we take action about hazing. I hope it's obvious we don't agree with hazing. Senator McClaine: I agree with Senator Brazee. Senator Bacalles: If we send a resolution we should define hazing. Vice President Lawson: it is in binding, the definition of hazing. Senator Hershkowitz: Re-refer this motion to amend.

Ok, we are having the first meeting of the referenda promotion committee tomorrow at seven in the student association conference room, you are all welcome to attend this meeting. We have a number of things in place now to promote the referendum; I have set up a budget for us to spend on the referendum as well as items for us to be handing out. I have gone through my budget and decided that I will give a maximum of a three thousand dollar budget to our committee and feel that ths should be more than enough to promote the referendum well. I will of course wait until we meet to make any solid decisions about how to split up the money, but I will be coming to the meeting with a number of plans that committee members will hopefblly want to buy into, and if not, we will formulate a new set of ideas. We need to have an approach that heavily includes our organizations and hall councils. Earlier in the semester I had said I would be visiting the hall councils to present on the student association. Soon after I realized this would be a great deal more affective if done in February rather than October because we will be fi-esh in the student's minds when the issue is at hand. I would like to do a presentation that integrates each senator fi-om the building to show that we have a place in every part of campus. I suggest that we use both the direct assembly and the senate to do this. I would appreciate it if ever senator could find two organizations to meet with Now I know the

PAGE 88

A senate liaison program has been repealed, and I in no way want this to seem like I'm trying to get you to follow it anyways, I just would appreciate one meeting with two organizations each to help us out. We have over 80 organizations and there is no way my e-board could possibly meet with all of them individually. I also have fliers prepared for an all campus mailing that should be done in February or maybe even closer to the referendum; I will discuss this all this with the committee tomorrow. I would like to use this mailing to also promote the elections being online if this takes place and am prepared take any other steps necessary to inform the student body if a new elections process is implemented. I would like to take a straw poll of who would be willing to take the time out to meet with two organizations during the month of February, if you don't want to its ok since you are not legislated to do so and this is more of a buy in program. In lieu of what has been going on with our website I updated it to the best of my ability and the information on it should be up to date now. All pertinent financial documents such as purchase order request forms have been transferred to the website. After the meeting I would like to take every body's pictures so that I can try to put your pictures online some time during winter break. If you don't want your picture taken its no big deal.

Last week was the direct assembly and it was notably more successful than the last one. I do not believe we have a problem with the direct assembly as I have stated before, we simply had a bad meeting because of the vast amount of activities going on during the last meeting. We are keeping the meeting on Thursday nights because I have checked booking and meeting records and it is the night that the most organizations are able to attend. We have a new incentive program for attending the meetings that is working out very well and I believe that the possibility of being rewarded for attending the meetings will keep groups interested and engaged. From what I can tell we had about 25 organizations (roughly fifty students) represented at this meeting which I believe is a pretty good amount. In addition we had presidents and e-boards from a number of Greek organizations in attendance. We believe that next meeting we will get even more, but realistically I think about thirty organizations and about sixty students is a good number to shoot for regularly attending. Last week was a very bad week for me, I'm sorry if I was not very available and apologize for my absence at last week's senate meeting, I had a family member pass away unexpectedly. I did however participate in the airport interviews for the provost search committee because of its extreme importance to the future of the campus. Unfortunately our meeting with the

PAGE 90

president was bumped back to this Thursday so I cannot yet give you a list of the candidates who will be visiting the campus in February for our final decision. I can assure you that we were very rigorous in our interview process, spending ten hours a day for two days on interviewing potential candidates. I hope that when these candidates do come to campus in February and more infomation can be divulged that you will all take a personal interest in it. This committee took an extensive amount of time in selecting them and I have also spent a very large amount of time to the point where it has consumed me a great deal because the future reputation of the college hinges 6 on the perfomance of the Provost.

December 8,2003 To Members of our Academic Community: On October 31,2003, a member of our academic community was subjected to acts that targeted him during a class studying Native American heritage. This act adversely affected the instructor and the students in the class. We are an academic community which values and respects the diversity that each of us brings to the campus. Our curriculum and various out-of-class activities intentionally provide us with ways to learn about people whose life experiences may be different than ours. These opportunities increase our ability to live and work in an ever-changing national and global environment. Our academic community is focused, in part, on providing opportunities for its members to learn and develop intellectually and personally in an inclusive campus environment. The diversity of the ethnic heritage that exists among our members enriches the quality and breadth of our learning. Native Americans have a rich culture and sacred traditions that several members of our academic community and natives in the surrounding area still practice in their daily lives. This culture, along with many other cultures present in our academic community, should be respected and celebrated here. Those among us who may suffer the hurt of hate or bias incidents or language, whether done intentionally or out of ignorance, are affirmed in our community by the knowledge that others will stand publicly in solidarity as allies and actively seek ways to make our community better. Because our college is a smaller part of our larger society, it is important that we understand that bias incidents may occur within our academic community. Therefore, it is imperative that we support of each other in our learning experiences, pledge to conduct ourselves in a manner that is respectful of each other, and affirm the values of our College, as expressed through the College Vision Statement: Oswego students will be the focus of an educational community enlivened by a passion for leaming where the habit of intellectual inquiry is inspired through teaching, scholarship, and mentoring; where integration and application of knowledge are valued; where the ideals of high moral character, global understanding, respect for human diversity, and awareness of social responsibility are rooted in our academic culture. (Engagement 2000 Beyond Aspirations: A Learner-Centered Culture) We invite those who may wish to support the reflections in this Letter to the Academic Community to come to the Hewitt Union on Thursday and Friday, December 11 and 12,2003, to sign a copy of this letter. The signed copies of this letter will be posted in the Hewitt Union as a public display [as a display of allies] for the duration of this semester and may be used as a backdrop to the many ethnic celebrations that traditionally occur during the spring semester. Our signature affirms our commitment to a living, learning, and work environment where we treat each other with respect.

1. Purpose of Organization: The dissemination of information concerning Latino people. To encourage studies concerning the fundamental problems of the Latin world and the means for their solutions. The promotion of better mutual understanding and strong ties between Latino Americans and American people.

2. Past year's In the past year, the Latino Student Union has had weekly programs, organized an annual banquet, recognized academic accomplishments and has had various events enlightening students about the Latin culture. Problems that this organization has faced have included the false knowledge of Latin culture and stereotypical idealizations of Latin people. Our past year's goal was to let our presence known on campus and to educate students on the different cultures around the world that make up a whole people. The Latino Student Union does not believe in segregation, rather the desegregation through proper knowledge of, plainly put, people that are different. We have~plished our goals with meetings such as "Make your Flag" where members construct their own flags whether it be from their country or a flag that represents who they are as individuals. In the end of the program, students talk about what their flag means to them sharing a part of them as well as educating those present. Keynote speakers have spoken to students at the Latino Student Union Annual Dinner and at the ALANA conference educating 3udFnGbn how toachieveunity through understanding of other cultures. We also deem it necessary to recognize students for their academic accomplishments as well as their accomplishments outside of the classroom. We have these events and recognitions in efforts to educate students on different cultures and to promote unity on the SUNY Oiwego campus. .--. The following is a tentative schedule of the pa2t year as well as the spring 2004 semester: .

Questions At-Large Senators regarding Off CampusICommuter Forum. Senator Bacalles: It was decided by the off campus senators that we would not organize the meetings to elect a chair because no one would take the responsibility. Vice President Lawson: It is the senates' responsibility. Justin: I will be happy to help and attend any meetings that you set up.

Senator Bacalles: I participate in the Boy Scouts in my community. Vice President Lawson: You're a senator all the time. You are always doing your job. You are a leader even when you leave Senate you will find some way to get involved. Senator Issues Forum Senator Hershkowitz: It was brought to my attention that Scott Robinson's Birthday is today. Senator Brazee: I went to Albany today, and tuition is an important issue for students. The SUNY System needs money and Senator Brazee is opposed to the proposal that was voted on today. We do have to compensate for inflation. If they are not going to do anything about it, we should. The student's voice was not heard on the Tuition hike.

Senator Nichols: Asked the senators to think of why a student would say that their student government doesn't now work for them. Was concerned it if had to do with issues in past years. Senator Bacallis: The Off Campus Forum is not working well because of the limited number of Off Campus Senators. There are currently only 3 Off Campus senators, and it's a lot for only 3 to do.

They hosted underprivileged children and introduced them to the sport of boxing and the equipment used. They need $500.00 a month to rent a space for their equipment, which includes a ring. They need to use space off campus because of the need to put fixtures in the floor and ceiling. 2. Katy Stevenson, NYPIRG: Explained why NYPIRG is against an incremental tuition increase. There is no clause saying if there is a deficit, again they could raise tuition as much as they wanted. 3. Dr. Scharfenberger: Read aloud a letter that will be posted in the Union this Thursday and Friday. Asked individuals to sign it and promote respect and diversity. (See Attached) Guests of the Senate 1. Dr. Richard Hughes, Director of Campus Life: Explained the Events Calendar that will be working on January 19,2004 Executive Report 1. Brian Randolph, President. Thanks the boxing club for coming. Their proposal will take some collaboration. They are motivated and will fundraise to make money. The first meeting for the referendum is tomorrow. The budget is a maximum of $3,000. Plans will be brought up about promoting. He wants to integrate the senators into his presentation at each hall council. In February if every senator could go to two SA organizations to present and talk personally to promote the referendum it would be great. There will be pamphlets mailed in February to promote the referendum and online voting. Last week Direct Assembly went well. There were 25 organizations and about 50 students. The next two direct assembly meetings will promote the referendum. The next meeting is Feb 5 in 104 Lanigan. He participated in airport interviews for the provost position. He is working on creating a grouplorganization bulletin. Has a rough draft of the Greek Council Constitution. There will be a set standards for membership, and has been well received so far. When asked about the Ontarian Mr. Randolph replied, "I want to run it less like a club and more like a business. The Layout crew would get paid by the hour so things will get done faster." 2. Gregory Lawson, Student Association Vice President: Miss A Meal results are $5,429. This was the most successful program held on this campus. Senator Hershkowitz: Do you feel SA is stronger this year administratively? Lawson: In part yes, but only in part. The difference this year is we are fully aware of our shortcomings. This puts pressure on us to correct them. Now that we know where we need to prepare, and we must do that. If we don't then SA is in a weak state.

PAGE 12

Mr. Westfall: Do you have any advice for someone who is running for Vice President? Lawson: Study the Senate and the rules. Be prepared, run things over in your mind ahead of time. You have to love paperwork. Be organized and ready for everything. Read lots of things, read through the last 10 years of SA and have that committed to memory. Justin Barbur, Off Campus Services. I am sure the parking committee meeting is tomorrow. Good luck with finals, enjoy winter break. VIII. Senators Issues Forum Senator Brazee: We should have a table in the Union every week for the referendum, have a box for questions or comments and have a senator and answer questions. Senator Beck: The Senate Outing will be the Del Sarte performance on Saturday at 8:OOpm. We will go to Pizza Hut. Senator Bacalles. I want to watch the democratic debate.

Executive Report Brian Randolph, Student Association President: The first Provost visit was held this week. The Student Association Address is next week. There is also a Committee meeting next week. Next Thursday is Direct Assembly. He has concerns with SLE 39.25. Where does the money come from and should we spend it on a retreat? Gregory Lawson, Student Association Vice President: He is working on a Library project with Senator Brazee to possibly get more journals and renovate the library. He has three proposals for Rice Creek Field Station to renovate. One is with Daniel Preston to add an accessible walkway. Another is a complete renovation. There are concerns with the Involvement Committee it is inactive. Something needs to get started. Senator Brazee: The last two years the Vice President has run unopposed. What can you do to encourage people to run? Vice President Lawson: Didn't believe it was his responsibility to get people to run for the position, that is the job of the involvement committee.

SLE.39.24 Referendum Language Passes 11-0-1 2. SLE.39.25 New Program for Student Association Oswego Senator Robinson: motion to amend in the following way. "Be it further enacted that Budget Council should allocate $1000 for the 2004-2005 budget year. Be it further enacted that a detailed outline must be documented for further reference in a binder to be held by the SA Vice President and the Finance Manager. Be it finally enacted that it is the responsibility of the SA Vice President and the President Pro Tempore to plan for this retreat to occur immediately after fall elections. This retret should include events that allow everyone to get to know each other. Strike lines 2633" Senator Bacalles second. Senator Bacalles: motion to vote. 11-0-1 amendment passes. Senator Hershkowitz: the wording is confusing. President Randolph: There are a few who are really interested in Senate and they fall back. I don't think we should spend so much money on ourselves to get to know each other. Vice President Lawson: We can do this at training, if people showed up to the team builders that were planned in the day. The underlying problem is not the event, its us not going to the events we have now. Senator Potak: The Senators dinner is a good example almost no one showed up. Senator Hershkowitz; I agree another event could be pointless. Senator Bacalles: I know the people I spent three days with better than I know anyone here. Barbur: I agree with President Randolph. I find it strange that hall councils agreed to you spending $1,000 on yourselves of the students' money to have fun. Perception is perception. Vice President Lawson: Vice President Tim Barnhardt planned a rope course and no one showed up. We can't attend the events that are mandatory so why create more that can be skipped. Senator Hershkowitz: If we spent the $1,000 the outcome would be much greater than if we used it somewhere else. President Randolph: If it's effective it's worth it. But is it worth it? Senator Potak: It would only be effective if attendance was improved. 3-8-1 Legislation fails. 3. SLE.39.27 Mr. and Ms. Caribbean Pageant Senator Hershkowitz: Motion to amend in the following ways, "Lines 14 and 23 change $1700 to $1000 Robinson second.

Senator Bacalles: Do you think it is fiscally responsible to give them another $1,000? They should fund raise for this money. Senator Nichols: According to the members it is their constitution that they have to put this on. Senator Brazee: The pageant wasn't budgeted for and they weren't told and they didn't read their constitution. Senator Bacalles: They forgot and if you were in the real world and forgot you can't be given extra money. Senator Nichols: I concur. This is not a new event, they goofed up and they need to take responsibility for not reading their constitution. Senator Hershkowitz: Motion to amend "Line 14 and 23 change $1000 to $400" Senator Bacalles: Motion to vote. 6-5-1 President Randolph: We should wait a week and they could transfer funds from The Backyard Jam and use the revenue from the pageant to give back the money.

n Good evening Senators, Guests of the senate, members of the audience and faculty. I come before you tonight to reflect on where we stand as an organization, what direction we are going in, and what I think that the student association as a whole should focus on in the future. I have put four and a half years of experience of being involved in the student association into my thoughts on how we are doing as a student government and reflected on many of our successes and failures over the years. Hopefully many of you will share the same sentiments h as I do, and if you do not, then I hope that this can begin a dialogue in order to form a direction for us to travel in the future. This year has gone very well so far, other than a number of critical incidents, that it would have been nearly impossible for us as a government to prevent, this year has not had anything significantly bad happen, and we have shown a great work ethic in implementing our government. .114

PAGE 31

We are one of the most well organized student associations in the state, and we work very hard to cut down on the amount of red tape that we must go through in order to do business. I am very proud of how over the past few years we have progressively made ourselves more efficient, and are striving to work more with our constituencies, therefore increasing our accountability to them. Our current Student Association budget features a diverse group of clubs and organizations, and I feel that for the n most part, we are putting the students money in the right place, and contributing to the well rounded education that is a goal of this institution. Our regular operations are well defined and efficient, and we carry them out well. Most groups who work with us walk away happy, and we are very quick to accommodate unless there is something legitimate preventing us from doing so. When I look out to this room today, I see a room full of people who truly care about where we are going, and how good a job we are doing. This is what

PAGE 32

keeps us doing a good job, and is an atmosphere that we must m work very hard to maintain, I have been here in years where this was less prevalent, and when you look through our legislative books, it really shows. This year we are doing a very good job not just to maintain, but also to improve. We are going into this referendum as a strong student association, but I have many fears about some of the directions we have traveled in because of past actions. We are in a precarious place, and I am not here to lay blame to why we A are, but rather to reflect on it. What we do is not the problem; the problem is the common public perception of what goes on in the Student Association that is going to cause difficulties in this upcoming referendum. Because of this we must work very hard to win back the student body and convince them that we are worthy of their funding, and that what we do with their money makes a difference in their lives. I believe what that we need is to open more lines of communication with the students and show that although we do have public fights sometimes, we

PAGE 33

work together very well and efficiently and that we are providing a helpful and needed service to the student. The Student Association would benefit a great amount if there were more visible community involvement by members of this government. I would like to see all of us step up and take a leadership role when it comes to community volunteer work and involvement, both on campus and in the local city community. Our office of community services is very successful and well run, but I feel that there is more that each one of us in this room today could do to bring more people into their doors to volunteer. In the coming year, on top of this, I can't emphasize enough, the leadership role that we can take in nurturing a sense of civic responsibility. I cannot stress enough how important it is that we get our constituents out to vote in this falls presidential election. In budget committee this spring this will be kept in mind and I want all of you who plan to be here next year to really take it seriously. Our involvement in the political system on this

PAGE 34

campus has been criticized a great deal in the past few years, and I for one think its time to turn this around. I have worked very hard to strengthen the bonds we have with our organizations, and keep in close contact with them, and also made advances to reward the organizations that also wish to strengthen their ties with us. We are working towards increasing both the quality of the events we put on, while increasing the ensured safety and reaction time to critical incidents that may occur in the student association. Another goal of this administration that has been well met is to not let any club flounder because of simple inexperience in the e-board or disheartening circumstances that hinder a clubs ability to operate. We have brought back groups that were struggling in the past few years, such as the Jewish student union, and given them the guidance needed to garner more attention, and increase their numbers by gaining both upper classmen and freshmen interest through programs r"4 like the opening weekend involvement fair. We have gone out

PAGE 35

of our way to ensure that organizations such as the equestrian club are able to still practice and perform together. This fall we had to look high and low to find them insurance, and even harder to find them cheap insurance. A task put off by previous administrations. We have worked very hard to be up front and honest with groups, holding all to the same standard while asking and receiving mutual respect in return. As we expand in size because of the number of clubs and organizations that receive funding from us. I believe it becomes even more important for us to be very strict in enforcing fiscal responsibility across the board. We must prevent redundancies from occurring in the budget, along with frivolous expenditures from taking place for the purpose of emptying an account. Other than refining how the budgeting process works, a key way of doing this can be through increasing the guidance that we provide to our clubs and organizations in how they allocate resources for events and activities.

PAGE 36

We should take steps to go beyond what we normally do F to encourage groups to work together. It is key that we consolidate our resources and efforts. Over the years we have begun to allow ourselves to spread out at a rate that is not realistically sustainable for much longer. Often one group will not know what another is doing, and two groups will wind up doing basically the same kind of event. I would like to see us integrate faculty more into what we do. We are in a position to facilitate an expanded relationship h between faculty and the student body. This would improve upon our academic environment on campus, benefiting all students who choose to participate. We as student leaders have a responsibility to reinforce an environment focused on learning. Through all our activities we sponsor, from sports to diversity events, we must always keep educating in mind, there is something to be learned from everything, and often there is a faculty person that could work with groups towards their

PAGE 37

purpose while also enhancing their education, these faculty are just waiting to be tapped into. We have done a tremendous amount of work in my tenure here as both president and as a senator, to increase our effectiveness as a student government. We run very smoothly and we clearly define what we must do. I firmly believe that we need to shift our focus into new areas because we have defined how we operate so well, and defining it more at the rate we have, may not be the most aA beneficial thing that we can do for our student body. With the rest of my time in office, I am going to work on creating new programs for increasing social activities betwee
