Review of Minutes Approved without changes. 2. Services & Activities report from Tom Mercado Services & Activities fee collection is mandated by the Legislature. The money collected from S&A fees are allocated by a 10-member student board to student groups, KAOS, Child Care Center, CPJ, S&A Administration, CRC and the Emergency Loan Program. In past years, S&A has partnered with the College on a number of projects, including lending the College $103k in the late 1980’s. S&A moneys paid for the 3rd floor expansion of the CAB Building, the Organic Farmhouse, the KAOS expansion, expansion of the community gardens, part of the composting project and, most recently, part of the Campus Children’s Center construction. S&A conducts a survey on a regular basis to find out what students want. The last survey included student suggestions for more lounge/hang-out spaces, information kiosks, more computer spaces, study spaces, and a space with a microwave and refrigerator. 3. Food Services report from Collin Orr We are currently in the 3rd year of a 3-year contract with Bon Appetit; we have yet to make this arrangement fiscally viable. Our current facility is inefficient; on busy days, there are long lines at the food counters and the register. We also do not have enough seating. The Food Services Workgroup is developing a long-range plan for food services on campus, including looking at issues of customer service; social responsibility; selection, hours and facility; and financial stability. We are currently working on a contract with the University of Washington to help us with our plan. We are considering several plans, such as a food court arrangement. We are considering having late hours in the new Café in Seminar II that will help accommodate our evening students. 2 4. CRC report from Janette Parent The CRC is currently working to provide more family recreation, as many older students with families return to college. CRC staff see that people want recreation that is instant and effective; 5. Update from needs assessment subgroup Postponed until 12/5. 6.
