EXECUTIVE REPORT Chris Friskey Allwas settled with the law suit againstSA;a new caseisbrewing up where the IRS says the SA needs to pay employment to S.A.V.A.C. They will be contacted to see if the SA owes them money. Problems with the PPB for the past 2 years the PPB has had the lack of leadership and direction although they are a vital roleoncampus. Right now they are workingona concert for this semester to playoncampus. The Senate finance committee failed their charterinNovember for the PPB Committee. Itissaid that the PPB needs some restructure sending more representation to Artswego. The PPB Cinevisions should have their own separate committee.

Senator Mirenda said that PPB should step aside chair people and work together and clear thingsup.Senator Kramer doesn't understand why reconstructuringisnecessary;itdoesn't need reconstructuring but perhaps the internal functions of PPB does. Norman Lee said that all the quality activities will still be around regardless of any reconstruction. Thereisanopportunity to growinthe future.

Kristin Clogg attended a meeting with Cynthia Donovan about the possibility of having a TicketMasteroncampus. There would be no service charge only a bill for the phone line.

EXECUTIVE REPORT Chris Friskey introduced Thomas Ryan, Assistant Director of Public Safety. Mr. Ryan talked about the use of the new Blue Lights and thereisa need for more on campus. The ones right now are 10 to15years out of date but are stillinworking order. The new GTE Blue Lights are less expensive ($4,000) and are cellular and portable. They run off of solar power. There would be a monthly service charge of $40 per unit; this is an excellent system for the price and they would be installed by the fall of '96. Ryan said that for the 7 years he has been here, the Blue Lights have been used about 10 times; the campus is very safe. He discussed about perception of safety which is important. The GTE company will always monitor the units daily. This product is cheap compared to others out there on the market. Itisdesigned for true emergencies. Thereisa new SUNY parking lot at the Chase Bank parking lot;itis also an info. center. At this time, the Senate went into Executive Session. Issue with the PPB Friskey said that he feels that they are not providing proper services to the campus; he urged the Senate to think about the issue concerning the PPB.

They get $100,000 in allocation which there are reasons forit.Thereisinsufficient leadership by the director and assistant but the chairperson should not be ridiculed. There had been past experiences where there were scheduledmeetings on how to use the ledger books and no one showed up. The restructure from PPB's point of view was that they are working hard on a new constitution. Their charters are handed in, inventories completed and an appointment of an SA liaison and a director of finance for PPB. There are hopeful solutions but if the PPBisomitted then there is no campus; there's a need for diversity on campus or it'll be biased.

Senator Strong said the lights are state-of-the-art, cellular, easy to work with. 1st Speakers Harmonie asked how effective are they. They have been used 6-7 times within 10 years which have been false alarms. Washo said that everyonewants to be safer but why not just buy 2 and have the rest of the money go towards the students; ask what they want done with it. Barley agreed with Washo; maybe someone should amend the bill. Pauldine sees it as "life insurance"; perhaps have more and students would use them yet other senators brought up a good point. Busschaert amended the bill from $17,200 to $8,600. McDermott opposed the amendment; there should be more than 4 blue lights purchased, just leave bill as is. Strong yielded to Clogg you should worry about the new students coming in for their perceptionofsafety. Strong said that parents look at safety first at colleges; you can't put a priceonsafety, use it now while it's there. Rowe said you have to look at the campus environment; Oswego is an open visible area. Washo said that Thomas Ryan knows of 2 spots where the lights are needed; consider the factors, you can save money on buying 2 lights. Gordon agrees with the amendment; the whole campus needs lighting in general, the campus is very dark, the money can go towards that. Strong said that Mr. Ryan should comeinonce a month to the meeting and give updates. Busschaert called to question to the amendment. 15:3 passes the amendment.

Some of the other topics that were brought up the senatorswere:poor plowing of snow in parking lots, and stairways, e mail accounts,theOswegonian article and Off-Campus Students being "ignored," and some computers not usable. Interim President Deborah Stanley first spoke about the budget cuts on the SUNY system. Sheisavailableinher office to discuss any problems that arise either about the budget or not. She encouraged students to write letters to the assembly people on how they feel about the SUNY cuts. More than 6% is being cut to SUNY whichisover $2.5 million. If this occurs there will have to be a cut backonservices. There will be, however, a restoration of TAP. Deborah made it clear to the Senate to get people out there to voice their opinion and address the legislation. Student voice is very important. Although there has been a dropinSUNY applications, Oswego won't be "down"instudents for this up-coming fall. The acceptance of bright and academic students is what Oswego looks for. This is a very highly competitive school. Also alumni can feel their degree still has a value to it even after a number of years. The graduate program at Oswegoisone of the bestinall of SUNY schools. The graduate students can assure themselves that the program will continue and hopefully will offer MBA degree .. ____ Deborah then answered a few questions about the Oswegonian issue. She said that it was misinformation and did not attack the paperinthe notice to students. There was no intention forit.It then lead onto the off-campus students and how they do not receive all mailings as on-campus students do. There is not enough money (for postage) to send to all off-campus students. Give her a strategy to inform students. A "Technology fee"wasbrought up. The administration has a decision upon that which will make students unhappy if this falls into place. Deborah stated that she would like to see the body ask questions and have request; tell her what you want and she'll lookinto it. If she has to, she will come to every Senate meeting to answer any questions The next incident was with the plowing of the snow, or lack thereof. The snow plowing this winter has been poor and nothing has been done about it. Deborah commented

During the transition of, and with the lackofcommunication between former and present leadership, the Asian Student Association has committed to the sponsoringofa $4,900.00 (food and traveling expenses inclusive) keynote speaker for the A.L.A.N .A. League Conference. As you've probably figured, after the A.L.A.N.A. Conference, and the upcoming "welcome to Oswego new and exchange Asian students" family picnic the Asian Student Association will have only $100.00. Upon discovering this, the present leadership had asked theWomen'sCenter in helping to co sponsor the speaker. The Women's Center agreed to contribute only $200.00 due to their limited budget. Furthermore, the present leadership had contacted the speaker's agent and explained Asian Student Association's changeofleadership and Asian Student Association's budget. A renegotiation was agreed upon. The keynote speaker and its agent will only compromise $500.00, thus the amountcameto $3,500.00 for. thespeaker'shonorarium plus $583.25 worthofexpenses*l,therefore deducting a grand totalof$4083.25*2 from the Asian Student Association's budgetof$5150.00. In lightofthe circumstances thatl.the speaker's contract and the Student Association's contract were already in the processofsignatures, and 2. especially that Asian Student Association (regardless1 any additional expensestothat amountof$583.25willbe billed later. 2. subjecttochange as additional expenses is received

Asian Student Association's budget, after the renegotiation with the speaker's agent and receiving a contributionof$200.00 from the Women's Center, will only be$1116.75*3.With future plannedevents such as thethe Women's Day Extravaganza, the Asian New Year Feast, Asian Awareness Week, and the Annual Asian Dinner$1116.75will not be sufficient.Itis a great disappointment that these expected events, as well as other small activities, may not happen this year.Itis also a disappointment because these events and activities will have contributed to Oswego's intellectual and cultural life. Asian Student Association does not ask thatStudentAssociationprovide funding forourspeaker. Asian Student Association thatStudentAssociationaward the needed funding to the Asian Student Association as anAssociation,in that Asian Student Association may use this valuable resource for ourWomen'sDay Extravaganza, our Asian Awareness Week, andourAnnual Asian Dinner, besides other smaller activities such as Asian April Movie Marathon, Asian New Year Feast, and "get together de-stressor nights" such as bowling night and etc ...

I am pleased to share with you the successofsomeofthe events we had last year (1994-1995 school year). For the Women's Day Extravaganza many students, both Asian and non-Asian, were given the chance to display their talents ranging from presentations to poetry and fiction reading, from cultural dancing to music making. Students' feedback were both positive and enriched. Let me also say that the Women's Day Extravaganza received attention from the Syracuse Post Standard. For Asian Awareness Week, Asian Student Association sponsored Mr. Manuel Valdehuesa, the U.N.E.S.C.O. (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) representative in Pakistan and sub-Regional Advisor for Communication in east and west Asia. Asian Student Association also co-sponsored with Immigrant Experience Mr. Qui Due Nguyen, a Vietnamese author and lecturer. He held a book signing in the College Store Furthermore, for Asian AwarenessWeekAsian Student Association promoted two cultural artsofAsia: meditation and martial arts. Sifu Daniel Hammond gave an extraordinary demonstration on meditation and martial arts in the Hewitt Union which attracted large groupsofstudents throughout the performance. Moreover, to end Asian Awareness Week, the Asian Student Association held its 6th Annual Asian Dinner. AsianStudent Association hosted a Philippine dancing troupe, and an Asian fashion show. The Asian Dinner attracted over 150 attendants. Although, the 6th Annual Asian Dinner had a slightly less numberofattendants than the year before, which held over 185,.

Andasalways Asian Student Association's events and activities were open to the public. Asian Student Association would like the 1995-1996 school year be as successful,ifnot more, than the previous year. With financial assistance from theStudentAssociation, it will be assured that Asian Student Association's goal for success in the 1995-1996 school year will be reached. This is a copyofAsian Student Association's budget proposal for the 1995 1996 school year: (see attachments) 2. All Asian students,aswell as non-Asian students (for we have non-Asian members as well), will benefit with the helpofStudentAssociation.Asian Student Association was established to acclimate new and exchange Asian students to Oswego by offering a comfortablea. .. familiar social environment for them to interact in. Also, Asian Student Association was established to promote cultural diversity and awarenessofthe many culturesofAsia. By granting funding to the Asian Student Association,StudentAssociation will further help contribute to the college communityofOswego. ? 3.IfStudentAssociation should grant the needed funding to Asian Student Association, the planned events and activities will remain as scheduled, and the

Asian Student Association programs will promote to, contribute to, and reflect upon, the cultural diversityofthe State UniversityofNew York College at Oswego. 4. With quality and quantity programming, through the financial assistance fromStudent Association,the Asian Student Association will contribute to the cultural diversityofOswego college, further promoting and reflectingourcollege community's cultural, and intellectual life. Significantly, without the Asian Student Association, oneofthe key minority groupsofthe A.L.A.N .A. League (African-American, Latino,Asians,and Native American), Asian'" ,on campus will not be represented. There might not be an A.L.A.N .A. League. Oswego College cannot truly admit to being a diversifying and cultural collegeifAsians students, who are fast becoming a major contributor to Oswego's student body, are not represented. Let me assureStudent Associationthat the Asian Student Association has learned from this mistake, and is now closely seeking leadership guidance from the Lead Center. The Asian Student Association has attended the Student Association's Leadership Conference on September 9, 1995tolearn and gain

Also, Asian Student Association is in the processofincorporating fund raisers into its programming to atone for this folly. Asian Student Association asksStudent Associationto help us reach our goals for the 1995-1996 school year. Thank-you for your time and assistance in this matter.
