Board of Regents: Student Representative Enright came and spoke with the senate about a variety of topics, ranging from the new budget and the Board of Regents plan to choose a new UA president, to their hope for student cooperation with the smoking ban’s December enforcement, as they do not actively have a plan in regards to how the ban will be enforced other than through the removal of ash trays and plaques banning smoking being placed near buildings.
Spring 2015 Travel funding: A bill created by Senator Reid showcasing which students would receive funding from ASUAF to travel was umanimously passed. The bill was carefully put together after weeks of committee review of each application, and is dedicated to providing students with allotments of funds for use in travel with academic related events or functions. $14,000 will be spent among 22 students.
