Kelly Benkert
One of the things we are doing this year is trying to improve our assessment of our  programs. And one of the ways we need to do that is to have some groups of comparison.-
You all are the student government and you will respond in a certain way, but Iwould appreciate you filling out this survey (fall/spring survey).
SGSU members present filled out this service survey
Center for service: connecting learning to service through service learning,leadership development programs, organizing projects like Labor of Love, week longimmersions that are local and within the state of Washington
70 or 80 partner organizations and lots of students expanding that number and lots of students taking the initiatives to stay on with the organization
~ 25% of employees at our community organizations are SU grads, we aregraduating students that are ready to be plugged it
: We heard about the changes in boundaries this year. What is going on with that?
: There is a boundary change going on in the Seattle Public Schools without publiccomment and not following the guidelines and not just talking to the rich white families – wedon’t have all the information on this yet
: Also! We are asking students to commit to an organization for the whole year because it is better for the people in those organizations and for the students, you can print out a pledge formand you get a t-shirt that says “Serve Local”
: Where are you located?

Unveiling new logoQ&A
Are you filled up on the committee or are you still looking for people.
: At first I was thinking that it would be a good balance of people, but the committee isalready formed and we are already at work.
: What’s the difference between tobacco free and smoke free
Tobacco free means all tobacco including chewing tobacco has to be removed fromcampus but smoke free is only smoke.
: This is an exploration committee, but you are drafting a resolution. What does thismean?
We are only exploring the possibility and most importantly the concerns and issues likehow will this impact faculty? We are processing all of these before we make a decision
: I know that Father Steve had come up with several statements in support of thiscommittee. Are there any memos going to Father Steve on this?
The hope is that the committee will give this to SGSU and they will pass a resolution. Ihave heard that there is maybe a task force.
There is no task force.
When are we going to make a statement on it?
The hope is that SGSU will make a statement before the end of fall quarter.
