Members of the Men’s and Women’s Rugby clubs were allotted $1,500.00 for a scrum sled to be used by both squads for practice. The equipment is expected to last 8-10 years, if properly cared for. The equipment will be stored at the Good Shepard Softball Field.

Members of the Lasallian Arts Lovers Alliance appealed a decision the board made at an earlier meeting, and requested $1500.00 for spring semester programs. No motion for funding was made and the proposal was not funded. The Board cited the following:

1. The board stands by its original decision

2. They allotted some money and would like to see how this new group does with their initial programs.

3. The group should also monitor attendance at the events funded. This might help the board with future decisions.

4. The Board also feels the group could search for alternative funding (e.g.: if speaker is focused on diversity, are there offices/student organizations able to co-sponsor?)

5. Is there a balance of the arts: music, arts, etc., current examples seem to be from literature field only.
