Jeff Davis opened the meeting at 2:07 p.m. A meeting agenda, the previous meeting minutes, University Center Advisory Board By-Laws, and revised University Center Advisory Board By-Laws were distributed.
Revised UCAB By-Laws. Jeff asked that the members review the revised University Center Advisory Board By-Laws. After reviewing, Ron Wizner motioned to accept the revisions and it was seconded. Jeff noted that the revisions will be placed on the Student Government Association meeting agenda for approval.
1-Card Project Status. Jeff noted that the new door access ID Card that was put into place last Fall is for the 1-Card Project. Public Safety and the University Center are beta test sites for the campus wide system that will be put into place. The vending module of the 1-Card was included with the Canteen Vending RFP (the vending machine provider for campus). Canteen Vending will cover the cost of all additional wiring requirements. The vending module of the 1-Card Project is going forward to the Campus Executive Team for review.
Break Construction Projects.
- The gym floor refinishing was completed over break.
- Renovation of the locker and training rooms are nearly completed. Some electrical outlets are still being finished. Countertops and
sinks were replaced, carpet was removed and new flooring replaced it, bench seating was removed and new benches were added.
Randy Cubero stated that Athletics is thrilled with the renovation of the locker and training rooms.
- Randy noted that Health South is bringing extra equipment to the training room.
- Jeff noted that a track system was installed in the University Center conference/meeting rooms. This system allows for removable
whiteboards, projection screens, display boards and flipcharts to be placed on a two level permanent track in the rooms. He
announced that when making room reservations, the contact person will need to note if a whiteboard will be needed – such as with
projections screens, etc.
Food Service Contract – Housing Village Committee Status. The Food Service Contract was rebid last year and was re-awarded to Sodexho. The contract has finally completed legal counsel approval from both the University and Sodexho. The Housing Village Committee status was not addressed at this time.
Art Gallery Proposal Update. Valerie Brodar noted that she was in attendance to support/assist Susan Jiron. Susan was to present the Art Gallery Proposal. Susan was not in attendance for the UCAB meeting and the Art Gallery Proposal Update will be post-poned until next meeting.
University Center Budget Fiscal Year 2004. Jeff noted that he will present the budget at the next meeting for the members to review.
Jeff opened the meeting to department reports. Randy noted that the Intercollegiate Athletics Department is proposing a Sports Complex on campus. He noted that the complex would be fashioned in a spectator style. He noted that this is a high priority project for students. Students have expressed interest in having a swimming pool, racquetball/handball courts, treadmills, punching bags, and cycling. The complex would be accessible to contributors and students. The location has yet to be determined – possible locations are below Lots 8, 9, and 10 or 4-Diamonds.
Future Meeting Dates. A discussion of available times ensued. Samantha Villarreal noted available days/times for Robert King and Laura Eurich. The next meeting date was not determined and Samantha will email members for available times/days.
Meeting ended at 2:57 p.m. The next UCAB meeting is to be announced.
Respectfully submitted by Samantha Villarreal.
