This weekend, there is a grassroots youth leadership training in Bellevue. Kelsy and Wilbert will attend. It will be $100 per person.
Kent motions to use some of our travel funds to pay for them to attend. Mahmoud seconds. Motion passes.
We should make a survey for the student body asking their opinions on the GSU and issues that we are working on. Andrew and Chelsea and anyone else who wishes to help will work on making questions.
Student Conduct Code:
Many GSU members believe there is at least one issue with the code that students and GSU has been speaking with the administration about for two years and it is still not changed. That issue is that the standard of proof to revoke a degree is 51% like everything else. This needs to be higher and they need to add something saying what exactly they would use that power for (ex. plagiarism). The rest of the GSU will take the week to read over the Student Conduct Code and form opinions about anything that needs changing.
Nathan motions to send out a tesccrier email inviting people to the next meeting to share their thoughts about the Student Conduct Code with Michael Sledge and Art Constantino. Andrew seconds. Motion Passes.
The idea was brought up to host events to advertise for the GSU and what we do to get more student input. Marylou, Kelsy, Eli, Andrew, and Zach will brainstorm ideas.
Present: Wilbert Piña, Marylou Boles, Eli West, Kent Reister, Mahmoud Hammad, Nathan Schuur, Kelsy Melton, Chelsea Brous, Andrew Nepstad, Sean Logan, Joseph Barresi, Josh
