Approval of minutes - December 2, 2004. Mary Yates motioned to approve and Dawn House seconded the motion. Minutes approved.
LCD Project. Jeff noted that 99% of the equipment has arrived and LVW Electronics is here today installing the equipment. He noted that two LCD screens will be placed at the second level of the University Center across from the gymnasium and two LCD screens will be placed on the elevator shaft near Jazzman's. One screen at each location will be a calendar style setup with news/events for today/a week out/a month out and the other screen will be more digital feed with clubs, organizations, and department advertisements and notices. Jeff noted that digital signage software is still being evaluated. Jeff noted that he is working with student clubs to put together programming for their events. Next proposed LCD installation would be in University Hall because the nursing students have limited classes on the main part of campus and often do not have information about upcoming campus events.
Posting Procedures. The Posting Policy for campus has proposed changes to re-title as a Posting Regulatory Procedure. The procedure is referenced in the University's Facility Use Policy.
Public Safety has put together a Chalking Procedure for chalking on sidewalks and walkways. The University Center Information Desk and ROAR Desk have buckets with washable chalk and a scrub brush for chalking and removing the chalk.
