Honors Forum Council Meeting  -- Friday, October 8, 1999


Michael Arnush, Sue Bender, Phil Boshoff, Katie Cella, Kim Helms, Jon Ramsey, Amelia Rauser, Anita Steigerwald


Tabitha Orthwein, Ruth Copans


Jon laid out the short and long term Communications agenda as follows:


The Council discussed the need for HF Academic Council Representative Zeyno Barnes to focus on developing a positive and lasting relationship with SGA. Co-sponsorship of SGA events is an opportunity to extend our participation in the larger student community. Zeyno will draft a letter to SGA president describing our interest and potential role in events.

Establishing HF Grants

The Council discussed the desire to procure and distribute grant money earmarked for senior capstone projects or HF proposals in general. Possible conflict with already existing Student Opportunity Funds. The Council considered possible sources for the funds, the quantity needed, the need for a review committee, the administration of the funds and other related issues. The creation of an HF endowment for student development could help to address the overwhelming volume of requests now submitted for Student Opportunity Funds.
