Women's Caucus Meeting

June 14, 1999

It was reported that 44 people attended the Race for The Cure in Washington, DC and raised $2,400. A similar event was recently held in Martinsburg and included a luminaria ceremony that was quite moving.

There was some discussion about the Presidential Commission and the possible inclusion of religion and gender. As there needs to be on-going training, there should be some commitment of money. Discussed possible topics including Management Strategies for the Millenium as a broad base for the on-going training to address dealing with inappropriate behavior and disciplinary guidelines.

The music fraternity that presently plays for the men's basketball games was approached about playing for the women's basketball games. They would charge $30 a home game and would take a vote at their next meeting. The Caucus may look at raising $500 to provide this support.

It was reported that the graffiti in the back of Gardiner Hall that was anti-women had been removed.

New VP Kipetz will be asked if she would be available for an informal reception on August 26th from 4-5:30 pm, sponsored by the Caucus and sororities.

The U.S. Dept. of Justice has proved funding to bring the artist and exhibit "Unheard Voices" to campus in October. Extra help will be needed with hostesses as well as counselors. The exhibit includes 24 masks and 2 figures of men and women who have experienced sexual assault.

The next meeting will be Monday, July 12, 1999 at noon in the Cumberland Room.
