    Executive Report.                  Christopher Koski, Executive Vice President
                                       Please note the differentiation between legally-binding Acts and non-binding Resolutions. Acts
                                       make us do things, Resolutions talk about how we feel.

                                       Agendas were not sent prior to the meeting due to the exceptionally large amount of legislation
                                       submitted and the amount of reports and legislation submitted past deadline.

                                       No agenda because a lot of legislation. There are three types of legislation. See constitution
                                       for details. Acts-things that we can do. Resolution-sentiments of the body.

                                       No agenda-a lot of legislation and compiling the budgets sorry guys. Proxys now need to
                                       be the same classifications as you. Keep that in mind

                                       Welcome everyones.

                         Clarification: Paulson sent out a spread sheet of all the budgets to all the student
                         organizations. That is not true. Zang sending this out is the first time to do this. Hopefully we

Bill Sponsor VPF Zang: Explained budget process. ACS presents as a group. ACS goes over the budgets for club sports.
Organizations submit written budgets, then 10 min presentation by the club to finance committee. Then finance discuss
current spending by club then discuss and recommend line items. Impossible to give organizations everything they want.
We have to base their budget on past actions because that is our only basis of performance.

Questions:
McCoy: Lacrosse and hockey did come in, should we honor them?
A: ACS Walker: Lacrosse was very poorly run. Asked for huge increase. They were not very active. They were on e the
few clubs that ACS does not support. $1600 is the number that ACS decided. Ice Hockey does receive the support of ACS.
They did an increase. ACS does not want to hand out a lot of money. IH would want money in ref fees. Lacrosse’s line
item is unknown.
MB Reed: What is the ACS budget money used for?
                                                                                                                                 Page 7 of 33
A: ACS does their own travel request for their club. They have insurance on all their property.
MB Reed: Could the ACS money help the Ice Hockey?
A: Yes.
Hollier: Why are we increasing ACS budget 17% when they only spent 36%?
A: These numbers are only as of January. Many clubs do a lot of travelling spring.
Hollier: Do they spend 100% regularly.
A: Yes, Jane Rushing would have brought it up.
ACS Walker: ACS is at about 92% of spending their budgets.
McCoy: Percent spent is as of January?
A: Yes.
McCoy: Lacrosse spent 50% of their budget by January and they could have spent all of it by now?
A: These answers are as of late jan and early feb when budgets were due. The percent spent is up to date, kind of.
Greenburg: All clubs that have spent very little have most likely have spent all their money as of now?
A: It depends on their season.
ASB Cullen: We need to take these numbers as up to date. Finance thought that these were acceptable numbers.
EVP Koski: We have heard everything that you are going to say. We met and discussed all of these numbers.
Greenburg: How do you justify giving 100% increase to organizations that have only spent for instance 13% of their
budget.
POI McCoy: if we amend anything, we will have to meet again?
A: We will have to separate the ones you will amend?
POI McCoy: So we could move another section?
A: We will have to separate out these and have special session?
POI Leverson: Can we not amend on the fly? We can amend a recommendation.
A: Maybe?
POI McCoy: If we amend it, finance has to review it?
A: Funding recommendation needs to be a reviewed since it would be a reserve request in a sense.
POI McCoy: if we amend, it doesn’t have to be a reserve fund request?
A: Hamias: We also decide budgets in line items. This has to be in consultation with Jane Rushing

VOTE: Call for Division
Count: 6-6-2  defer to chair = DENIED

Diamond: Is there anyway to change budgets in the fall?
A: Not really. Reserve fund request.
EVP Koski: We have had a chance to talk to finace.

Gallagher: Why did you tell BMES to have a senator amend budget?
A: Because that is the only way to do this. WE have to do allocation by line item. If you add money, it has to be line
itemed by finance and USG. All organizations have the same chance to present their case about their budget. That is the
only way we can do this fairly for all organizations.
Sizer: Is Equestrian a spring sport?
A: Yes.
ASEO Frey: Didn’t we table these budgets so we could talk to organizations? Why did we wait?
A: Cullen: Things can be changed but if a lump sum is given it has to be line itemed. If you specify, than they can use it.
VPSO Gray: We don’t know the amount of money to allocate?
A: No.
VPSO Gray: Someone talked to each organization?
A: Yes.
VPSO Gray: Did they have the opportunity to come to USG between last meeting and this meeting .
A: Yes. Several people did.
VPSO: Gray: Did anyone have any big concerns still?
                                                                                                                   Page 8 of 33
A: VPF Zang: I told them to contact a USG senator in order to change their budget. I have done the most work than any
other VPF because we have never sent out the budget like this.
POI ACS Walker: Only a few club spots came up to talk to ACS after presenting the budgets. Men’s Lacrosse is the only
ones to bring it up.
VPF Zang: Crew fundraises a lot on their own. Club sports can always fundraise outside.
Greenburg: What is the point of bringing the recommendation to USG if it’s too much work to change? If we change
equally, cant this work?
A: VPF Zang: When you asked about finance, you cannot join finance because you were not here the entire year. Finance
spent a lot of time on this and it is a very nice recommendation. There is a consistency.
Greenburg: Why do we have to approve this since you feel more confident about your decision?
A: Prez Walker: We have committees that do the nitty gritty work so that the body does not have to go through line
items. USG is unique because we don’t accept recommendations at face value.
POI VPSO Gray: we are fussing about policies. We are way out in left field. We need to direct to the original finance
recommendations.
POI VPPA Couper: If amend on the fly, what do you do?
A: ASB Cullen: Move to amend a certain section and divide. Then suggest that it goes back to finance or suggest lump
sum or suggest specific line items.
POI VPPA Couper: Is there any way to amend and it be finalized now?
A: EVP Koski: There is no more finance committee. We could have Senator Greenburg with NO finance experience be the
chair of the committee.
A: Advisor Bocage: It is possible to finalize a budget tonight. You have all the authority to do everything. All the power of
the finance committee is now endowed to the body tonight.
POI VPPA Couper: Do you know some of the more current spending data?
A: VPF Zang: Yes.
Hamias: We have all the information that you asking about in front of us in finance. We would never increase a budget
if they have never spent any of their money. We have looked at everyone’s numbers and budgets.
Greenburg: What was the justification of increase squash budget when the haven’t spent much of their money?
A: VPSL Kelley: They are a new club and the squash court at Reily is not regulation size. They have to travel to a hotel.
A: VPF Zang: They are a new budget so they haven’t had the same chance to spend all of their money like other
organizations.

Debate:
==McCoy: Amend:
Section 13. Ice Hockey Club be granted $5500 in organizational funding for the 2008-9 term, the additional $400
designated for the highest priority line item.
Section 16. Lacrosse Club(Men) be granted $1600 in organizational funding for the 2008-9 term, the additional $300
designated for the highest priority line item.

McCoy: It’s not a lot of money to increase. WE have a lot of freshman coming in next semester. They are unique
organizations with unique circumstances.
POI VPF Zang: Do you think the circumstances are ones they should have brought up or they are new ones?
A: They probably didn’t know what comments to make or how to respond to the finance committee.

Debate on Amendment:
POS: Leverson: The point of all this was to see what organizations had unique circumstances and what they had to say.
NEG: ACS Walker: We did talk to presidents before submitting budgets. ACS would be fine with budgets as they were
originally.
NEU: VPSL Kelley: More comfortable with the ice hockey increase rather than the both of them.
POS: McCoy: If we don’t support the amendment, then why did we table this last meeting. If we ask students to be
responsive, it would be a shame to not answer to them.
NEG: Paluch: There have been problems with everyone. We don’t want to give money for no reason. There reason to go
around the finance meeting.
                                                                                                                    Page 9 of 33
NEU: EVP Koski: These were tabled originally because we wanted to give a communicative reasons. It was meant to
allow people to talk to finance Committee. It was just for organizations to speak to the body.
POS: Leverson: We should act responsibly.
NEG: VPSO Gray: We don’t have just one body checking organizations here, we have ACS and finance checking these
budgets. The purpose of tabling was to voice their opinion about their budgets. No promises were made that if they did
bring it up, they would be guarantee about giving increases.
POI ACS Walker: Budgets are submitted to ACS and Autumn. They are reviewed for the direction of the club and the
best interests of the club.
NEU: Clark: Obviously the issue was tabled, but we have had students come into the body to speak at student forum. We
should take into account their concerns. $500 in dues is absurd.
POI ACS Walker: Many other clubs have dues in excess of $400. Crew has dues that can be $750.
POS: None
NEG: Hamias: Very flustered. These sports fundraise. These questions have already come up. It is going to start adding
up when you start adding a few hundred here and there. I understand why you are supporting these organizations.
There will prob be more clubs that have better reasons. This is 3rd highest ACS budget but it doesn’t have the highest
membership.
POI VPF Zang: If they want this money that bad, they can fundraise.

ASB Cullen: We cut shockwave.

Questions:
Leverson: Where were you coming from declaring organizations discriminatory?
A: VPF Zang: The main person behind this was ASB Cullen. The finance never declared anyone discriminatory. They
voted to send to SBAC. Cheerleading more money from athletics. Shockwave to SBAC.
POI VPF Zang: Those notes of discriminatory were nothing binding.
Leverson: Weren’t those reviews nothing official?
A: VPSO Gray: Official infractions need a letter. SBAC treated this as a regular organization review. We reviewed many
of the organizations that were brought up.
Leverson: If they are provisional now, they can receive no funding?
A: Yes.
Pettiette: What caused cheerleading that caused a split vote?
A: ASB Cullen: it wasn’t the first one. Just the first one to come up now. Just an idea to seek alternate funding.
Cheerleading received 18% increase.
Pettiette: A negative vote means what?
A: ASB Cullen: The no reasons vary from time to time.

NEU Pettiette: I respect competence of finance and as a cheerleader I understand. Cheerleading will not fund as
atheletics. They are stuck in this black hole that nobody wants to fund. Increase in cheerleaders would benefit as a

VPF Zang: There should be one ne vote for every student government. Cullen doesn’t believe in student governments.
Cullen and Lyceum decided to combine their money. Green week was put into Homecoming.
Questions:
Leverson: What was cut from SECS?
A: VPF: You got a 21% increase. Each line items read.
Leverson: What were the reasons for cutting entertainment and orientation.
A: VPF: We don’t think its appropriate for you to get $9000 for entertainment. That would be your entire budget.
Sizer: What is the new number for tidal wave with green week?
A: VPF: tidal wave number is without the concert. That movie was moved to TUCP concerts. TUCP Programming also has
large budget that can coprogram with.
Babin: Why did PH school and business decrease?
A: VPF we don’t fund business TGIF programs. FSG does not spend a lot of their money. They have done this the past couple
of years. They are decreasing to prove a point. For PH they asked a lot for travel and lodging which should be travel
requests.
McCoy: Why do we fund TGIF?
A: FSG has not done a lot. TGIT is a regular events. We do not fund regularly scheduled events.
POI Hamias: SECS Crawfish boil is open to everyone. We don’t fund incentives for people to attend meetings.
A: Cullen: The TGITs are funded elsewhere so we don’t fund them.
POI Sizer: The tidal wave budget does not get $7000 from GAPSA. It is definitely hurt the body.

Debate:
=Cullen: Amend: Section 4: Direction and TUCP joint speaker series be granted $100000 in organization funding for 2008-9
term
Change Section 10: Tidal wave homecoming be granted $7500 for green week funding in organizational funding for 2008-9
term
Change Section 10 to 11
==Accepts as Friendly
=Leverson: Amend: Section 9: Tidal Wave Homecoming be granted $37660.00 in organizational funding for the 2008-9 term
(Increase $7000, line item: Entertainment)
Leverson: We are programming for entire student body for a week of homecoming and home run homecoming and green
week. A carnival will be held with some events. Fireworks will be bigger and better. Some schools get upwards of $100000
that are comparable to us.
Questions:
POI Zang: You getting $30000 for concert from TUCP
Leverson: Not all goes to a band. There are additional costs. There will be just one band. $30000 is just going to the concert
that day. There will be other activities that will be along with the concert. To be honest

                                                                                                                                Page 17 of 33
POI McCoy: Can someone explain the line items?
POI Leverson: I would recommend putting it in entertainment. Then we can reallocate it later. There are meetings now.
We need money now.
POI Hamias: Looking at the current budget, the way that homecoming asked for money. Are we allowed to give an
organization?
VPPA Couper: What happen to GAPSA?
A: Sizer: They don’t want to fund activities for undergraduates. They just don’t have the money to spend on this.
POI VPF: Do you think that a reserve request would be better.
A: It would be better.
POS: Hamias: This is a good example of changes when finance looks at the budget. GAPSA wont fund them so this is a
pretty appropriate change. This money will be used.
NEG: ASB Cullen: This makes a 40% increase rather than the documented 2% speech.
NEU: McCoy: I am neutral because that its shady that the ONE organization that we are adjusting the funding amount is
one that 3 voting people are on the committee.
POS: VPPA Couper: It is the most well planning machine here on campus. They have an extremely driving group of
students involved in this organization. We should consider this when discussing reserve funds. I am ok with no sports. I
think that this institution should be all athletics. School spirit should be all or nothing.
NEG: None
NEU: ASEO Frey: we should keep in mind that we are giving them more money because they have a tendency of coming
back for reserve funds request.
POS: Sizer: This increase is not that big of an increase. We had $7000 in the budget last year.
POS: Leverson: I understand where McCoy is coming from. It is true that we are really involved in this organization. He
has a lot of faith homecoming. They are doing a lot with so little such money.

VPF There are big changes. TUCP All nighter has been cancelled. This money has been moved to Tidal wave. Movies have
been cut. They have changed their revenue figure as well. Getting rid of revenue figure for movies. TUCP does not use their
budget efficiently. They are receiving more flexibility because they are going to be restructuring so that they use their
budgets better.

Questions:
McCoy: Cannot have amount recommended higher than requested. Why?
A: VPF Revenue figure has been changed. Comes down to different ways of reporting numbers.
VPPA Couper: Do we include revenue figure in total amount allocated for the year?
A: Yes.
Debate:
NEG: ASB Cullen: All organizations shot for 20% increase and it was just cutting across the board. It is odd that we mandate
20% increases and then decrease TUCP. Budget process is very silly. Needs to be redone.
POI VPF: TUCP did not get a get. The only reason why there is -10% is because Lyceum has been cut and reallocated into
direction.
=ASB Cullen: AMEND
         Section 3: TUCP-Concerts be granted $104250 in organizational funding for 2008-9 term with $32000 in revenue

         Section 4: TUCP-Concerts be granted $17825 for funding for a homecoming concert for 2008-9 term
         Numbers are adjusted accordingly.
$30000 total is going to Tidal wave for Homecoming budget. Money is going from concerts and VPA

A: No.

Leverson: What about other organizations funding?

    Sponsors.

    BE IT ENACTED BY THE UNDERGRADUATE STUDENT GOVERNMENT ASSEMBLED that
    Section 1. $2,000 be allocated from the reserve account for the purchase of a painting by Randy Leo Frechette, also
                known as Frenchy, which was commissioned during Crawfest, and painted on stage while Jon Cleary
                performed with Newcomb and the Tulane University oak trees in the background, and
    Section 2. this artwork, once purchased, will be displayed in the Lavin-Bernick Center for University Life.


ASB Cullen: Frency gave us a good deal. Apparently it’s a big deal to own these paintings. Big names own them. He gave
us a deal for $1800. It is a part of the decoration initiative to decorate the LBC. Rather than the reallocation request from
crawfest, use money that will roll over into the reserve fund. Crawfest has enough money to buy this, it is just the money that
is rolling.

VPPA Couper: If we don’t buy it, will crawfest buy it?
A: Doesn’t know if they are allowed to. There are other bidders for the painting. There will be money to pay for it. Just don’t
have to time to do reallocation request. This has not gone through finance.
Clark: Where will this be hung?
A: The locked cabinets that are see though along the wall here in the LBC.
Babin: Did someone ask him to paint this?
A : No
Babin: so he just did this out of the goodness of his heart?
A: Well no I guess. He just paints things that are popular.
EVP Koski: Who said it was a great deal?
A: He is that sort of caliber the painter that this amounts of this. We are donating this to the university.
Cipirano: Will the be something that says who did it?
A: Yes
Gay: How do we expect to keep it if people steal couches from the LBC?
A: Security is being addressed by university committees.
Debate:
POS: VPSL Kelley: It’s a really nice painting. It would get the ball rolling to get this building decorated.
NEG: Clark: This money can be spent on such better other things. We should feature student art.
NEU: Paluch: Its cool to have nice paintings but its really expensive.
POS: McCoy: Everyone in the art department would like to see this on campus. They know its him. This is a very cold building.
There is no Tulane or new Orleans atmosphere here. Brightening the building is always a good thing. This is not a ridiculous
amount for this building that we have spent a lot of things.
NEG: Clark: we don’t use this building to the full extent of its green abilities.
NEU: Cipriano: Great thing its not the money, but its not just something that we have and we mention on the tour.
POS: Hamias: This is a lot of pressure for this school to look good for perspective students. This is for the betterment of the
campus. It will encourage more expression on campus. There is nothing wrong with having a profession piece of art here on
campus. Its another way to get our name out there.

                members.


    VPSO Gray: Many organizations came into today to talk about this. None of them had anything to say about them.
    Questions:

    Pettite: Shockwave is provistional now. What happens to their budget:
    A: Provistional cannot have budget. Shockwave didn’t get any money anway. They are provisional now because they
                 only have 9 members. They will only remain provisional until they obtain 10members. They have tryouts
                 firday. They expect to expand Membership.
    Pettite: How would provisional status would affect them over the summer?
    A: It wont take anything away. It is just simpley a technicality. They wont be provisional forever. They are working on it.
    Hollier: What is RESULTS?
    A: They are basically like the Roosevelt institution. They are taking real problems and learning how to do actual
                 lobbying. To create public and private will to end poverty and hunger. Generate public and private
                 interests to combat those issues. There is a larger program as well.
    Leverson: Can you say what SBAC is? Can you talk to us about our process and what we talked about with respect to
                 these groups?
    A: SBAC hears new organizations, reviews organizations and hear violations brought up to the committee. Many
                 organizations we just reviewed because no violations were submitted. No problems were discovered.
    David: What are all these letters?
    A: Councils with acronyms. Organizations are organized by purpose.
    McCoy: Were 3 people who abstained just late?
    A: yes.
    Pettette: Were the officers of Shockwave ok with this?
    A: they have been very receptive to all of this process. They are not too upset. They are cooperating and active in this
                 process.

Act 11-16, Tulane Firearms Association Owners Act
    Author.      Vice President for Student Organizations Gray

    BE IT ENACTED BY THE UNDERGRADUATE STUDENT GOVERNMENT ASSEMBLED that
    Section 1. Tulane Firearm Owners’ Association remain recognized as a provisional organization until no earlier
                than 31 December 2008, and
    Section 2. Tulane Firearm Owners’ Association must sufficiently amend its governing documents to more
                accurately reflect the purpose and mission of the organization, and
    Section 3. Tulane Firearm Owners’ Association must abide by all Association of Club Sports policies and practices.


VPSO Gray: Decision on this legislation is solely the decision of SBAC. This is not from Dr. Cherry or Autumn Johnson, Director
of Club Sports at Reily.

Questions:
Greenburg: How long have they been provisional?
A: About 1.5-2years. This is because of administrative problems. They violated certain ACS policies, Reily Rules. They will
receive a budget once full status. The administration is worried that funds will be used to purchase firearms and
ammunitions. Autumn Johnson said they did not turn in waivers, attend meetings and did not participate in competitive
events. There constitution states that they will not participate in competition, it says more about bringing in speakers and
educating.
ACS Council head Walker: They never turned in waivers even when asked. They don’t have enough. ACS wants them out of
ACS. They are move about having political meetings, discussion meetings. ACS is very much in support of this. They have
made a mockery of ACS rules and regulations.
VPSO Gray: Purpose does not say anything of competitions. It is more about education and advocating 2 nd amendment
rights. SBAC is trying to be fair that they do want to get to a point where they can go to competitions. They don’t have the
funds or the means to do so. SBAC will keep them in ACS to prove to this body that they can obey ACS policies and adjust
their purpose
Gay: Clarify the date of provisional status.
A: They will stay provisional until December 31, 2008
EVP Koski: Why not move this organization into PAL? Then found a new organization?
A: This is what club sports wants. The leaders did not want that to happen. We are open to friendly amendment.
Hamias: This organization does not want to change councils???
A: The leaders of the group have expressed interest to remain in club sports. The idea of this has been discussed. They want
to be ACS.
Pettite: What times of firearms does this include?
A: VSPO does not know for sure.
Pettiette: Do shooting competitions exist?
A: Yes. They could get funds to buy hand guns. That is contingent on actual Tulane Rules and regulations.
ACS Council head Walker: Gun policy change. TUPD can no long hold guns on campus.
VPSL Kelley: Is there a policy that states that a Tulane policy that says no guns can be purchased?
A: Bailey does not know. The actual policy is TBA. IT is being discussed.
VPSL Kelley: How did the organization respond to this idea that was brought up?
A: This should have been brought up with them. Gray wanted them to have to floor to give their opinion.
VPSL Kelley: SBAC believed that they would be best served by remaining as they are?
A: That is what the committee felt. They can do minor things to change it. They need to change their overall major purpose.
They blatantly disobeyed ACS policies. They need to prove to us that they can follow rules.
Hamias: If we go with SBACs recommendation and they wan to change councils when can they do that?
A: Not really sure. Jered Bocage’s office may need to make that sort of decision. If they want to start the Club Sports Gun
shooting, that would be a provisional organization.
Advisor Bocage: They need to demonstrate that whether they are actually closely tied with the old organizations. It is really
up to SBAC. There is room to alter their state if necessary.
VPPA Couper: Since this is based on their behavior with ACS, what is a waiver and how does that compare to other ACS
groups.
A: ACS Council head Walker: Waiver self explanatory. Sign away liability. Require 10 members. ACS has monthly meetings
and they did not show up. Can be fined $50. Major infraction (1 major or 2 minor) results in hearing of ACS board. They were


                                                                                                                       Page 27 of 33
brought up and they were told about meeting requirements of ACS. They are the first club to fight back major infraction
from missing meetings. They still don’t have all required waivers. They are biggest slackers.
VPSO Gray: SBAC is not to compare performance to organizations. SBAC is just looking at one organization and then give a
evaluation of their performance.
Pettiette: ACS needs 10 members right? So no waivers?
A: Last time checked, 9 waivers. Did not meet deadline. Waivers count as membership count. ACS just required 10 waivers
so we can assure they have 10 members.
--EVP Koski Are there actual questions?—
Gay: Have they had any other infraction?
A: No.

EVP Koski: Amendment:

Act 11-16 Amended, Tulane Firearms Association Owners Act


    BE IT ENACTED BY THE UNDERGRADUATE STUDENT GOVERNMENT ASSEMBLED that
    Section 1. Tulane Firearm Owners’ Association be recognized as a full status , and
    Section 2. Tulane Firearm Owner’s Association will be recognized as a Political Advocacy League, and
    Section 3. Tulane Firearm Owners’ Association must sufficiently amend its governing documents to more
         accurately reflect the purpose and mission of the organization, and
    Section 4. Tulane Firearm Owners’ Association must abide by all PAL policies and practices.


EVP Koski: They are really just interested in political aspects of this organization. This is a very sensible reform.

Debate:
NEG: Hamias- This is just a move by USG to change councils. They didn’t ask for this. We are changing the SBAC decision.
They had reasons for it. It is important to consider what SBAC has decided. Who are we to decide for them to change
councils. This is a really silly move on our part. We wont be doing the right thing for anyone.
NEU: VPSL Kelley-Agrees with move to PAL, but think should be provisional. It seems like main purpose is advocacy and
gun rights, but goals in future may be compete.

VOTE: 9-3-2 APPROVED

Resolution 11-R1, A Resolution Concerning Ms. Kelly Jo Larsen
    Author.      Associated Student Body President Cullen
    Sponsors.    Executive Vice President Koski, Senator Leverson

    WHEREAS Ms. Kelly Jo Larsen faithfully served the students of Tulane University as the Assistant Director of Leadership and
    Student Transitions in the Office of Orientation and Student Transitions; and

    WHEREAS Ms. Kelly Jo Larsen worked with the students in T2 and supervised the Emerging Leaders and T2: Leads
    programs; and

    WHEREAS through these programs she has positively influenced the young leaders of Tulane University and made her
    mark on the University for years to come; and

    WHEREAS Ms. Kelly Jo Larsen is beloved by every student she has worked with; and

    WHEREAS she embodies the spirit of Tulane University;

    THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Undergraduate Student Government of the Tulane University of Louisiana
    commends Ms. Kelly Jo Larsen for her outstanding service and admirable contributions to the Tulane community and
    formally thank her for her work to enrich the Tulane experience for all students

    ASB Cullen: She does T2 program and student leadership. She does a lot for the university here is the email from her
    sent to some close students:

My position was created to work primarily with T2, and as such, my salary line has been at the discretion of the Provost. On
Thursday morning I was notified that Provost Bernstein had decided to reshape T2 next year and as such my position at the
university had been eliminated. The Division of Student Affairs has committed to funding my job through December 31 but
after that time my position within Tulane University will no longer exist.

From what I understand, T2 will primarily be an academic program next year and funds are being redirected primarily to
Academic Advising. HRL will be doing some programming related to the residents of Mayer. However, the leadership
component of T2, specifically, and the overall leadership development initiative have been eliminated. What this means for
programs like Emerging Leaders and T2: Leads, I don’t really know. At this point in time, it appears that they will be
indefinitely cancelled.

As for NOLA, I will continue working with all of you on the planning process. I hope to still be here for my very first NOLA—it
would be a shame not to experience what everyone tells me is so amazing.

Personally, though, I will begin the process of moving on to another institution. I do not know how long I will remain at Tulane,
there are still many details to be worked out. At this moment in time, though, I am still very much here, willing and able to
lend a hand should you need me.

    She is an amazing woman who does a lot of work for university and the students here.

ASB Cullen: New code of conduct so this will be implemented this fall. They have removed the checks and balances that
allow student government the check the document. They have are not going University senate about this. This will just pass.

Questions:
Leverson: What is the version of this document?
A: The document is completely different than the document.
ASB Cullen: They are “trying to pull a fast one on us”. There are many problems with documents. These are outlined in the
sections of the legislation.
Babin: How does it normally approved?
A: No outline for how they actually approve a new one. We are just going off of precedent from the previous. They are
eliminating the student voice to stop this.
Leverson: To govern student organizations is our job right?
A: They have been told that SBAC has final say, but this conflicts with that. Dr. Bailey is aware about this. This will be made
note of.
EVP Koski: It’s a matter of principle. Its one thing to take money from student organizations.
Hamias: What else can we do with this?

                                                                                                                        Page 30 of 33
A: This gets students on our side. We are not ok with this.

A: Univesity Senate is 3:15pm on Monday. That is the only thing we can do. There is no desire to send this to University Senate
Cipriano: Can we get enough student support?
A: I believe that we can get support of this.
VPPA Couper: Explain word of legible?
A: It is just more readable.
VPPA Couper: Do you not agree that these are not all cut and dry?
A: it is most contentious for people being brought up on these charges.
