Christine: The Perspective of a Smoker on Campus
 Representative Kawano
: Can you update us because most of SGSU is new this year?
 I am not a fan of it, I do not think that it is the way to go about it; I would prefer the gradual steps (50 ft rule and taking ashtrays out of that zone which is confusing). I know
that a big issue is security. I don’t have any opinion on that. The biggest thing brought to
my attention last year,
students who are not smokers do not like smoke in their face. I’m
a very conscious smoker. I make an effort to be all the way to one side or by the ashtrays.
 Representative Ortiz 
: When you came last year, do you feel that your opinion was heard?
 Honestly no, it went from thinking about it to being completely tobacco free. I feel
that this was a really drastic jump. I respect what UW did going tobacco free in smaller steps.
 Representative Green
: Do you have any ideas on how to transition?
 Move the ashtrays into areas outside the line, draw the lines, and more clearly mark
the designated smoking areas and get people accustomed to the fact you can’t smoke
everywhere on campus. B.

, last year’s Multicultural R 
epresentative: CES, Memo on Transgender Housing and Gender Inclusive Restrooms, Tobacco Free v Smoke Free a.
Issues with CES -
Lack of prompt responses and follow-up regarding room requests -
Works at Office of Undergrad Admissions (given response within 24 hours) but when requesting as a student, response time is lacking (ranging from a day to a week)
Requests from rooms should be taken in order of reservation, but noticed that there is hesitation to give rooms to more important events (esp. STCN 110/160) -
Students should be given the priority, not organizations, for profit  b.
Memo on Transgender Housing and Gender Inclusive Restrooms -
Sense of urgency placed on certain initiatives (memo on transgender housing and gender inclusive restrooms) -
Quick changes should be addressed immediately, but there is no movement to act -
If SGSU has to front the bill, do whatever is necessary
There should be a sense of urgency
Tobacco free v smoke free -
There should be a distinction, smoke is what impacts other people, not just yourself, leaning towards supporting smoke free instead of tobacco free
 President Chalmers:
 Can you talk about your role in the diversity task force?
 I am the undergraduate representative for the diversity task force. The main purpose of the task force is to address the current campus climate regarding diversity. It is in the  planning process at the moment. The body is made up of faculty, staff, and students. The recommendations, due next quarter, will be taken seriously. This is because of a committee made several years ago was not taken seriously. It is important for us to have a clear communication channel with SGSU. Please share anything you want with me to take back to committee.
 Representative Bayuga Graff 
: I was on a committee that discussed a lack of multicultural
competency trainings. I’m wondering if that’s something that has been brought to
attention of the task force.
 The law school student representative in the first meeting brought that up. We are all equally responsible and our say is equal in this task force.
 Representative James
: You talked about preferring smoke free or tobacco free, but if you looked
at the things that tobacco free stand for would that change your mind at all?
 I know it alters the purpose and motivations of smoke free or tobacco free. I think tobacco free should be after smoke free. The direct effect on campus first is that smoke
free will create a good immediate effect, but that’s a secondary argument.
 Executive Vice President Barnes thanks Christine and Keenan for coming in
Guest Speakers
 Tim Marron, Director of Public Safety
Introduction and Comments -
Director of Public Safety since June, background in Puyallup Policy Department and at Evergreen College -
Evergreen wants to modernize their police department especially with the Cleary Act -
Seattle University is facing the same modernizing issues -
Last year they brought in consultants on public safety: emergency preparedness, title nine, clarity of mission, adequate training, and staffing -
The administration will and backing is there -
Margolis and Healy
 the consultants hired on to improve safety -
What are the goals? What is the context? -
Primary mission: protect lives and property of the Seattle University Community (lives first, property second) in the past that has been confused -
They have confused themselves as a junior police agency, but that is not true, safety is the focus, not enforcement -
To understand what it means to monitor safety, you have to look at the context of the neighborhood
 no different from any other urban area, we live in a busy neighborhood -
That’s why we have to look at staffing
 and what our staff are doing -
155 registered sex offenders in a mile radius -
We live in a busy area, the public safety department has to be focused on the area, not on enforcing policies on students -
Four main areas: emergency response (medically/criminally), crime deterrence and detection, emergency preparedness, community outreach (not public relations outreach v programming for sexual assault and defense) -
Training has been done to improve response (Seattle police department (20hr), report writing, interviewing for documentation (8hr)), UWPD security academy -
Equipment: Segways, trauma kits, automatic defibrillators, ballistic shields, uniform -
Segways: 5 cardiac problems on campus last year, cutting down response time and cover more ground, Evergreen used them for four years -
 practice shooter response every weekend, practice emergency medical response often over weekend, response time is timed and based on efficacy, daily  practice scenarios with use of force skills -
Hired four professional dispatchers, one who lead, dispatched for 15 years, was a trainer, supervisor -
Patrol focus: actively seek threats to life/property (segways help), greatly increased  patrol coverage
 1000 miles on each segway, reduced response time, automatic defibrillator/trauma kits immediately
 great investment
