Present: Fahey, Sparks, Mathis, Ramsay, Crangle, Wixson, Moore, Huckins, Hage, Kent, Landry, Campbell, Cantor, Levy. Absent: Bernier, Quigley, Barry.

Bill Crangle began with a discussion of the student fee schedule. He will take the reports he shared at this meeting to the Student Senate meeting on March 9 for their approval. He reviewed a spreadsheet showing housing, dining and fees across the System. A correction: the student activities figure under PSU in FY04 should be $310 and the percentage increase 4.1%. The collection of fees from Continuing Education students was questioned, which they must pay on top of the per-credit charge for the course. The fees may be a deterrent to our push to build up the CE and evening divisions,. Bill explained the requested increases in the fee structure. The overall increase is 5.1%.

Bill shared a list of all E&G fund accounts to show where and how much is being spent. Some questions brought forth discussion on the importance of keeping in touch with student opinion as to what they value most. Athletics, recreational sports and student organizations are highly valued by them and are important in recruiting students to our campus, but what about the balance between them? In light of current interest in personal fitness, would students rather have a good recreational sports program or organized athletics?

The focus of the next CBC meeting, next Tuesday, March 11, will be a closer look at detailed budgets.
