Padilla, Alberto Villegas, Officer Michael Guzman, Principal
Dianne Jones
Alma has stake signs that were

contacted before putting up these
stake signs.
Guests Present: Crystal Bustillos, TM Adjunct Senator;
Vincent Vielma, TM Student Senator and SGA representative

Paracourse – presentation from SGA
representative Vincent Vielma
It will cost an estimated $22,000 to refurbish
the trail and equipment. SGA has been asked
to contribute $3,000 to $5,000 for this
project. SGA would like others to donate
supplies and labor as well. Several
instructors are willing to help with this
project or have their students work on the
paracourse. The Military Club is interested
in doing labor for the trail. Deans mentioned
that no labor can be done on the paracourse
from outside of the college. The idea of
having local businesses sponsor stations and
recognizing them at the station somehow was
suggested. The Rotary Club has adopted this
project along with Jobe Materials. They have
asked the National Rotary for funding.
B.
Signage – report by Blayne Primozich
A list of signage needs was already made for
TM in 2008. A walk through of the campus
will be scheduled in order to update this list.
The signage subcommittee will work further
on this.

will be handed out to students who

word and invite students!

Adjunct offices and other issues – by
Crystal Bustillos, Adjunct Senator
1.
Adjunct instructors would like to
improve the security in their shared
office, especially because the
placement of the computers means
that their backs are always to the door.
The computers cannot be moved
because of the wiring. A swipe card
reader cannot be put on the door
because of the window next to it and
it would be too difficult to keep track
of keys for that office. A mirror could
possibly be put up so instructors can
see who enters/exits the room. Gabe

Crystal wanted clarification on which
division they could contact for certain
issues. Deans explained that while
certain things had to be separate, some
events are joint efforts by both deans.

committee should renew the subcommittees
that were in place last year.
Blayne Primozich made a motion to do away

Subcommittee. Motion passed.
Blayne Primozich made a motion to keep the

Subcommittees. Motion passed.

Hospitality Subcommittee. Motion passed.
B.
Smoke Free Areas
SGA representative inquired about the
designation of smoke-free areas at TM.
Nothing other than signs indicating not to
smoke within 15 feet from doors have been
posted. It was suggested that we get
feedback from the TM community about
their thoughts and ideas on the smoke-free
areas. Committee will ask Campus Police
how they plan to enforce compliance with
any smoke-free areas. Signage committee
can begin by mapping out the 15 feet from
the door.
Motion to adjourn made by Blayne Primozich at 4:35 p.m.
Motion passed.
Next meeting will be held on Tuesday, November 26, 2013
@ 3 p.m., TM Room 1124.
Submitted by Melinda Camarillo, Secretary.
It was suggested that each subcommittee
write an end of the year report so that the
new members can more easily pick up where
the last group left off.

Possible Relocation of Designated Smoking
Areas – report by Officer Perez
There have been some complaints that
students are too loud when they gather
outside of Room 1700 and Room 1801 to
smoke. Some instructors want to move this
smoking area, but it was brought up that the
noise is more of an issue than their smoking.
Officer Perez informed the committee that
anyone can ask these individuals to keep it
down or to move if they are smoking too
close to the building. If instructors do not
want to tell these students to keep it down or
move, they can ask the campus police to do
so. The students can be referred to the dean’s
office or to student support services, but they
cannot be sited for this yet. Also, e-smoking
is allowed in the building for now, but
instructors can tell students not to do this in
their classes because it is a distraction or put
a policy against it in their syllabi.

Sustainability Project
A water fountain made for filling up water
bottles was donated to the Valle Verde

deal. These fountains help eliminate the use
of plastic bottles and plastic bottle waste. It
is hoped that each campus will soon have one
of these fountains.
Tree Planting
Gertrud mentioned that a good time to
plant trees is in April, so once again
the trees may be planted before the
celebration takes place. She will ask
grounds keeping if the side of campus
near the Early College High School
(by bus stop) is a good place to plant
the trees. It will depend on the
irrigation lines.

English Student Essays on Campus Security
– report by David Henry
Students had to write about the security on
campus and a large number of them
mentioned that this campus needs more
security cameras. Many students wrote about
their fears of being on campus at times and
how security cameras would help ease their
fears a bit.

District IE Report – by Gabe, Christy, and
Blayne
1.
President Serrata and his
administration are aware of the
security issues at the various
campuses and they are looking into
solutions, including possibly receiving
grant money to fix these issues. The
SGA president has also voiced his
concern about these issues. The more
that people discuss these issues, the
more likely that we will see results.
Members not in attendance: Jeffrey Coles, Zaira Crisafulli,
Debra Farrelly, Lisa Miller, Alma Valadez, Principal Dianne

News regarding discussion with VP
Candelas – report by Jeff Coles
Mr. Candelas would like an update from Jeff
on signage and landscaping done or needing
to be done here at TM. He would like a
prioritized list of the tasks that still need to be
completed on our campus. The committee
should always keep an updated record of the
tasks that need to be completed on our
campus so that each new committee can carry
on where the last one left off.
Tree Planting
Vote for New EOM
Construction / Architecture Update –
Report by Deans Eveler and Webb
Architects have come by to see the campus
and make plans to re-do certain areas that
will accommodate the disciplines of Art and
Science, and construct a new writing center.
Once a preliminary plan is in place, they will
bring them to an IE meeting for discussion
and review. The number one priority here at
TM, however, is to repair the roof.
Because of a smaller budget, shrubs
may have to be planted this semester
instead of trees. The type of shrubs
purchased will depend on price. The
estimated date to buy the shrubs is
April 14, and they should be planted
soon after they are purchased.
3.
New Business
A.
Celebration Planning
EOM plaques were ordered and the
money came from the IE account, so
there are less funds than previously
anticipated. Because of this, the
committee has less money to spend on
the celebration. Christy suggested
having a lunch celebration this
semester and serving nachos. IE
members can donate other dips and
chips as well. The tentative date for
the celebration was set for Friday,
May 9th from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
2.
Smoking on Campus
Some college groups would like to
ban smoking on all EPCC campuses.
Dr. Serrata is in favor of first
administering a survey to determine
how students and faculty feel about
this issue.

Call to Order by Alma Valadez: 3:04 p.m.
Secretary’s Report: Minutes were approved with minor
corrections/additions.
Old Business:
-Lisa Miller on re-arrangement of trash cans/recycling bins:
Lisa has received “ok” from Mayra Cordero to repaint trash
cans inside and around campus. This will be done via a
student project for Lisa’s painting class. Materials for this
would be under $100. Paint needs to be oil-based at
$15/quart. Also, being looked into, is getting rid of some
trashcans or redistributing them to other campuses in need.
-Mayra Cordero on Recycling Program: Mayra suggested it
would be a good idea to have the recycling bins next to the
trash cans. Mayra is in agreement on removing some of the
trash cans from campus and redistributing them to other
campuses. She also suggested Beautification Committee print
out map of TM and circle spots where trashcans need to be
placed and then contact her or Raul Lucero.
Sub-Committees:
-Exterior/Interior Signage: Kelli Wood reported that next
semester, Spring 2013, the committee will have a list of
recommendations for this area.
-Beautification: Will be printing out map of TM and sending
to Mayra Cordero or Raul Lucero with circled spots of where
trashcans need to be placed.
-Conservation of Energy: Sandra Padilla reported that it is
better for us to turn off lights even if some rooms do turn off
on their own when no one is in there. Suggestion was made
that committee create a flyer to remind folks about upcoming
holidays to conserve energy wherever they can.
Gertrud Konings reminded everyone of the rain water
collection effort IE had once considered. She suggested we
continue with this endeavor in the coming months and come
up with suggestions.
-EOM: The EOM’s for December and January respectively,
are Patricia Barrientos and Eliodoro (Lolo) Mercado.
Kelli Wood moved we “celebrate” EOM’s 3 times out of the
year in December, May and September. The upcoming
celebration would then take place Tuesday, December 11th
from 12-2 p.m.. Motion was approved.
Other Business:
-Tree Planting: The motion was made to purchase additional
trees and it was approved. The check for payment for this
should come from college. Alma will contact Ron Stroud
about purchasing.
Diana Orrantia suggested we thank Jeff Coles formally for
shopping for trees and donation to the college. Alma will
look into a plaque for him to present to him at a future EOM
celebration.
-Blaine Primozich proposed nominating a treasurer to keep
track of expenses that TM IE incurs for EOM, etc.
Diana nominated Melinda Camarillo and Melinda accepted
nomination.
TM IE moved to approve nomination and motion was
approved.
District IE:
Meeting adjourned: 4:52 p.m.
-Signage: Dr. Serrata discussed lack of signage at the
campuses at this meeting and is in agreement there is not
enough.

employees that retire or pass on, was suggested here at TM.
Lisa will research feasibility of this. TM IE will continue to
look for other ideas on this subject.
-Study Areas: Dr. Serrata would like to see more study areas
on each campus for students. At TM, we will look at
tweaking those we do have to better accommodate our
students here.

policies on this at the other campuses prior to proceeding.
-Crisis center: The suggestion was made to create crisis
centers at each of the campuses with support services.
-College History: President loved the idea and would like IE
to start work on ideas for this such as interviewing and
recording history from faculty, staff, administration, etcetera
and report back to District IE. Alma will contact Linda
Brown from Leadership Academy in reference to the group
that had already worked on a similar project within

Budget Funding-Blaine Primozich has spoken with
Dr. Serrata and approached him about a budget being

that would then be used to fund projects at the campus
level for smaller projects.
4.
HistorAlma Valadez checked with Leadership and it
seems as though the project they had been working on,
had not been approved. Blaine spoke with Dr. Serrata
on this matter and the formation of a district-wide
committee to take on this task, was discussed as a
viable possibility.
Call to Order by Alma Valadez: 3:00 p.m.
Secretary’s Report: Minutes were approved.
Old Business:
-Signage for tutoring areas/other areas: Dr. Serrata is on
board with the need for signage and has each campus
working on their own area proposals.
New Business:
-Rick Lobato-allocation of space:
1.
Space left vacated by HVAC-original plan involved
hiring an outside professional to help with space
allocation. Currently, the discussion is focused on
moving Chemistry in there as well as using some of
the space for offices.
2.
The vacated Culinary Arts space is being looked at to
fulfill the Art Dept. needs.
3.
Future Student Union-space nearest the bookstore is
being considered, but suggestions are encouraged.
Rick suggested bringing the schematics for the Union
to the next meeting to further discuss options.
Concerns such as pedestrian traffic, rain, etc. in
regards to the building of the Student Union, were
discussed and will be taken under consideration.
-Campus Walk: Gertrud Konings walked did a walk-through
with Raul to identify future places for the EOM Tree Planting
Celebrations. The area around the Science building was
approved. February/March would be ideal for planting.
Gertrud will get together with Raul and Jeff to decide how
many trees to purchase as well as discuss different types of
trees that could be planted. Suggestions by TM IE included
Cottonwood, Desert Willow, and Palo Verde.
-Admissions/Registrars’ Space: This recommendation never
made it to Daryle Hendry’s office; therefore Alma will have
him resend the proposal to TM IE to re-initiate the process.
-Subcommittees
4.
David Henry asked whether there would be space
allocated for a Writing Center. With all the changes
mentioned above, there may be room left over for this
among other space needs in other departments. At this
time, we will have to wait and see what is left,
fulfilling first the needs above.
1.
EOM: Jeff Coles was selected for the month of
March. Christina Garza and Alma Valadez have been
doing a wonderful job of moving the EOM box
around campus. Participation in EOM selection has
increased due to this proactive change in the
nomination process.

Designated Smoking Areas-campuses are not yet in
agreement on issue of creating smoke-free campuses;
however, we do need to designate areas for smoking
to meet the current needs. Also, trash/ashtray cans
were moved around at TM Campus to see if new
format works better in helping deter smoke from being
too close to buildings as well as promote cigarette
butts being deposited in the ashtrays as opposed to the
ground.

the suggestion was made to either change the
way the EOM is selected or consider bringing

suggestion, the committee would need to

which is still being discussed

D.
District-wide IE1)
Ron Stroud has requested a list of cost-saving
recommendations from each campus IE
committee
2)
The suggestion to restructure the scope of
what IE is responsible for was made; a lot of
good suggestions are brought forth and
approved by the IE Committee, but then they
seem to fall through the cracks and not find
approval or funding further up on the
administrative ladder. Ron Stroud suggested
that the committee should try to have
something in writing for revised charges of
the IE, in order to present it to administration.
David Henry volunteered to write up a draft
of suggestions to send out to the chair and the
IE with the request that all IE Committee
members add to those suggestions via e-mail.
An attempt has been made before to get IE
site teams to speak face to face with
administration but the procedures always
seem to come to a halt. At this point there
seems to be no procedure in the books that
would give the IE the authority to get things
done or that shows follow-up on any projects
district-wide. A way needs to be found where
IE recommendations can be followed up.

New Business:
Secretary’s Report: Minutes were approved with minor
changes.
A.
Daryle Hendry was not able to attend this month’s
TM IE meeting and therefore his presentation on
setting up a web-room was postponed.
B.
EOM -- The selection of an EOM will continue to be
a part of IE duties. The IE committee agreed to
place, in the future, an obvious drop box at the ISC
to encourage suggestions from all faculty and staff
on EOM candidates.
Old Business:
A.
Campus repair and beautification progress report
Trees -- There have been complaints about more
trees removed recently on the campus. There was
concern that some of those trees were actually still
alive. Facilities did report them as dead, and the
facilities newsletter states that new trees will be
planted; but no date was mentioned.
Suggestion was made to have EOM celebration at
the semester Division Meetings which would allow
many more people to participate in the event. The
nomination letter would be read at the meeting to
honor the EOM as well as given to the EOM on a
card as a memento.
Vending machines -- The machines were moved
from their location near Subway to the classroom
halls, where they obstruct access. It is already
planned to remove them from there to another more
appropriate location.
Suggestion was also made to plant trees in honor of
the EOMs on Earth Day. Gertrud will look into the
feasibility of the above two suggestions and report
back to the committee either via e-mail or at the next
TM IE meeting.
Tazos Café -- Construction is now under way;
however, there is no signage telling faculty, staff,
and student body what the construction is.
Sculpture Garden -- Progress is being made, albeit
slow, on finding donations for the Sculpture Garden
from within the community. Lisa Miller will
provide more details on this at the next IE meeting.
At some point in the near future, private donations
can be made to this project via the EPCC
Foundation website.
B.
EOM for the month of January is Lisa Miller and
EOM for the month of February is Stephanie
Martinez. Congratulations to both winners!
C.
Cost-saving recommendations
District-wide IE has requested that each campus IE
continue to solicit cost-saving recommendations.
The question came up as to how we all can enforce
the recommendations that are made and approved.
Suggestions made included: involving interior
design students in creating a project for display and
campus life adding a cost-saving tip of the month on
their flier.
New recommendations this month include installing
light sensors throughout campus to turn lights off
when a room/area is not occupied and to remove the
informational kiosk in the mall area as it truly is not
being utilized by students.
Draft of Changes to EOM charge -- Changes that
TM IE would like to see implemented to the charges
that IE currently has, were reviewed. Thanks to
David Henry for volunteering his time to help create
this draft.
Changes would need to be pursued institutionally
starting at District IE and then onto President and
Cabinet. Motion was made to submit the draft of
changes to IE district-wide for consideration.
Motion was approved.
D.
Conference Room List -- A list of conference rooms
available were sent to Dr. Ron Stroud. Additions to
this list include both the Math Emporium Lab and
the Credit Math Lab. Gertrud will forward these to

Not all the permits necessary are yet in place,

The commitment from the college to this project

The EPCC Physical Plant informed us of the
proper procedure when requesting
maintenance work (includes heating

(8am-5 p.m., Monday-Friday) call (915) 8312280. Any other time (nights, weekends,
holidays, breaks) call EPCC Police at (915)
831-2200. The police will contact Physical
Plant.

Trees already on campus are not being
watered enough. IE members were asked
to give Gertrud a list of trees that seem to

Cost-saving recommendations

This will continue to be on-going.

Some of the lights, due to the age of some of the
campuses, need to be on because of security
issues.

Lights in the parking lot are currently on due to
a district-wide initiative. Here at TM, there are
some underground lines that were cut so the
lights are currently on so Rick’s area knows
which ones need to be worked on (the ones that
are off). The goal is to get all the lights working
in the parking lot so that it is safe in the
evening.
Recommendations this month: Mayra Cordero sent
information to Gertrud that the Physical Plant has
acquired some light switch decals to help remind
people to turn off the lights as they leave a room.

District-wide IE
Visit of the college president Dr. Roberts to the IE
meeting: He was open to changes and asked that we


There is a need for a dedicated computer lab for
students so they have access to on-line services.
There are a lot of students who do not have this
type of access outside of the college. The
students would be working on applications for
financial aid, admissions, graduation, transcript
request, meningitis vaccination form.
The suggestion was made to create space for
this lab over by the TM forum in the common
space leading out of the campus. The funding
for this project would need to be found.

An ideal space would be for 15 stations with a
glass wall to surround this area.

Albert Villegas asked Daryle for a simple flyer
to be created and given to TM library staff to
help assist students with processes such as
registration, for example.
The suggestion was made to look around campus
and identify areas that would need security cameras.

Priority list set-up-Gertrud suggested we continue to
follow up on the priorities we set up at TM, the first
and most pressing are: placing the concrete slabs
under the tables and planting new trees to replace
the ones that were cut down. Rick promised to
check off what has been accomplished from the
Campus-Walk List of last fall, so it can be updated.
April selection was Steven Lemos from the

Design of reminder notes -- who will contact
Campus Life to include reminders on their stall
fliers?
Alma Valadez volunteered to follow up on this. (No
we did not discuss this during the last meeting.)
Recommendations this month: None
D.
The TM-IE members would like to keep the
“Beautification” charge, since it is important for
everybody at the campus that it is an inviting and
pleasant place. Therefore we will continue pushing
these issues, following the priority list of David
Henry. This would include that Pascual Martinez
become a steady member of the IE. Joyce Ritchey
said that this should not be a problem.
Rick visited with the TM IE Committee at the
February meeting where concerns were voiced on
the state of the campus grounds, especially about the
tree stumps left after cutting down the trees. Gertrud
inspected in the weeks after the areas to make sure
that they were cleared properly. At this time,
irrigation has not been implemented in these areas,
which would have been ideal since these areas have
been currently dug up. Pascual Martinez will meet
with Gertrud on Thursday to decide where to plant
the new trees on behalf of the last four EOM’s, so
that new drip irrigation can be placed into these
spots.
District-wide IE
Gertrud reported on the last District-wide IE
meeting, where a meaningful charge of the IE was
again at the forefront. Since the recommendations of
the IE members to the different division directors
EOM handling of tree planting: Gertrud will discuss
with Pascual as to how this will happen. Gertrud
will also ask about whether the concrete slabs will
be in place prior to the planting.
B.
Web-Room follow-up
The TM IE committee looked at the area formerly
considered for the Web-Room and decided it would
be better to locate it at the entrance of the Deans’
offices right past the main entrance to the TM
Campus. It was requested that only glass walls
should be installed, in order to retain the present
view of the Mall area. It was highlighted again that
the Web-Room will be staffed by Daryle Hendry, as
he suggested during his presentation last month.

Gertrud reported that there have been student
complaints that they cannot access the college
website with their cellphones. It was suggested that
they check their phone carrier for possible
connection issues.
Open Floor:
Kelli Wood made the suggestion that all created documents
be saved “in-house” to be able to track all recommendations
made by the TM IE, as well as their progress. Blayne
Primozich commented that those documents already do exist
on the IE webpage and that any changes made need to go
through Dr. Stroud first. Gertrud will request at the next
district-wide IE meeting that TM be assigned its own
personal IE web-page.

United Way Presentation -- The United Way has
made some changes. Previously, the state employees’
campaign allowed faculty and staff to designate where
donations were assigned. EPCC has not become a local
campaign -- focuses on keeping donations in El Paso.
47 agencies in community, served approximately 50%
of El Paso last year (400, 000 people served). Last
year, the United Way raised 6 million dollars. Most
donations came from employee campaigns. The
United Way doesn’t fund agencies; it funds programs
within agencies.

Beautification -- Jeff- shared progress and success
of the beautification project.
Helping children succeed -- holding agencies and
caregivers to a higher standard
Financial Stability -- a root cause of other
problems (domestic violence, etc), over 45,000 El
Pasoans did not take advantage of their earned
income tax credit, getting bank accounts, etc.
Building Strong Families
Donations are a tax deductible contribution. The
United Way maintains a 13% administrative cost. Turn
in white and pink copies to David M. You can list a
multiple number of agencies (even those located
outside El Paso), and they will honor those donations.

VI.
There are no formal procedures or policies for
memorials. The IE committee decided we
don’t need to create one because it
institutionalizes something that should be
special.
o
There is also a concern about funding and a
budget for these memorials if they become an
institutionalized mandate rather than
something that can be addressed on a case by
case basis.

approved funding for Gerald Terrian’s

the District-wide committee.

Dr. Stroud is following through with the
Physical Plant.
o
We may also want to consider signage to help
students better navigate the campus.

Perhaps we can divide campus up into
sections (e.g. Section A, Section B, Section
C, etc)

Be sure to consider the Early College in these
plans.

Beautification – Jeff Coles
o
Jeff was unable to attend because of a
doctor’s appointment. He sent to and updated
the committee on the beautification project
progress. See handout.
o
The work order for beautification was sent in
October. There have been changes in the
Physical Plant. There are new hires for
grounds maintenance and Director, also their
supervisor, Tim Nugent, is retiring.
o

New Business

Math Emporium – Steve Smith
o
There will be a revised math lab built with
grant money. There will be a Math
Emporium in the future.
o
Math labs are a required component for some
math classes. The current math lab holds 9
students at a time. We need a math lab that
will accommodate 35 students.
o
Last year some faculty members got together
and wrote a grant including funding for a new
math lab, renovation of a chemistry lab, and
further renovations at NW. Partly this was
done to assist STEM students from the Early
College High School. The grant was written
with a proviso to change the location as
needed.
o
Since that time, we received the grant.
Construction consultants have only approved
the patio space, not any of the other sites.
o
Dean Smith proposes that a small committee
from IE look at all sites and make a
recommendation for the best possible space
for all concerned.
o
Volunteers: Terri Mann, David Henry, SGA
representative, Thomas McIlwan, Joanne
Peoples, and David Henry
Christmas Party Funding – David Moody
o
Current Balance: $514.09
o
New EOM plaque: $100
o
Celebration: $360.92
o
We may be able to donate monies in the
future to Christmas celebrations. Dean Smith
isn’t sure we should since most faculty
members are gone at that point, and it doesn’t
include everyone. It doesn’t contribute to
Institutional Effectiveness. We will revisit
this on a case by case basis in the future.

Gathering spaces have been chosen. Student
government has made 10 tables and benches
available. Kelli Wood will finalize the
project.

Addressed in Jeff Coles’ report
In order not to pay taxes, we have gone to the
ASC to sign out a tax free card, make copies
of receipts, and take copies of everything to
give it back to Laura Garcia to be sent a
reimbursement check
o
Steve Smith and David Moody will work on
alternatives
o
You can also pay tax if it is hospitality
related, although we aren’t sure if IE falls
under that heading.
o
Ideally, we are looking for a vendor who will
give us an estimate ahead of time. Cici’s
Pizza will not do this. We will look into
vendors who will. We will also be looking
into getting a card at each campus.

We would like a form that can be emailed and
is electronically accessible.

Look into joint funding between the Physical

Jeff shared that the committee met on
2/19/08. Working guidelines were created
and eight separate, related tasks were
defined. He highlighted things we can do
right now such as small friendly spaces and
small green spaces. He recommends starting
with flag pole area because this was the first
thing visitors see. He proposed a timeline.
David M. passed around the Beautification
report, for Terri Mann, to see what good
things were happening around the campus.
Jeff added that purchasing landscaping was
not enough and a commitment would be
needed to maintain the landscaping. Joyce
recommended that we submit in writing
(include specific information) to Dean Steve
so that he can relay information to the
appropriate department.

to her and Steve so that they can compile
it and show them our needs. She suggests
that we ask our colleagues for
recommendations on areas of concerns.
Please send by Mar. 3, 2008. She added
that the Student Services area needs to be
addressed.
Lolo mentioned that the new Admissions
set-up does not work.
Darcy mentioned that when events are
held in the mall area, instructors might
rightfully complain, but was concerned
about holding them in the student service
area. Joyce said that this was the best

Mural

Tom passed out some examples of a Codex
style that a student suggested for a mural. He
will email some pictures of this style used on
a Chicano art piece. The mural could be
moved from campus to campus before it is
set here. It will take two semesters to
complete.
David H. asked if we were going with a
Chicano motif. Jeff mentioned that the
Library already had a Chicano mural. David
recommended an academic motif. Tom
recommends that it addresses the social
aspect of the community. Kelly added that a
multicultural aspect does not have to be
incorporated all the time. Tom mentioned
that this is a proposal from a student at VV
and that we are only looking at the Codex
style.
Debbie asked why we will be footing the bill
if this will travel campus to campus. SGA
might be able to fund it.

Lolo shared concern from Dr. Linda Brown about
the use of flyers around the campus. He
suggested each of us being responsible for what
is tacked up on an assigned wall. Lolo wants to
send campus email announcing that anything

approved first. Sometimes flyers are left up after
the event has passed.
