Diversity of Promotions Coordinator - Tim Kennedy

  1. Parking – same as VP Redd’s report about the upcoming forum. VP Redd suggested the creation of a committee once there is a full Senate. Changes among which parking lots are Faculty/Staff lots and which are Commuter Student lots have caused conflict. There is proving to be very little point in commuting student purchasing parking passes for campus due to the lack of parking availability. It was suggested that the forum be advertised to commuting students by putting informational flyers on their cars.

Old Business – none

New Business – none


  1. The Writing Enhancement Committee needs a representative, specifically a freshman.
