This year, University Affairs is going to focus on its relationship with students and working to effectively advocate for changes within the university that will help every single student. We plan on continuing many of the same initiatives that were started last year (such a Gender Neutral Housing options, installing more outlets in areas the students typically gather to do homework, Guest Pass Parking and Course Registration Reform), but we also plan on expanding our mission to reach out to the administration to help educate students on the resources we have here on the campus and to make sure we are the liaison between the university administration and the student body. University Affairs also houses Campus Affairs and Academic Affairs.
“Dance Marathon has reached its cap at 1,200 registered Dancers! The
goal of raising $50,000 for Phoenix Children’s Hospital has also
already been broken by these ASU students! Papa John’s, Panhellenic,
Walmart, and Ubisoft have all come on as sponsors this week. I am
currently working on securing enough volunteers for the event and
finalizing the event timeline. All students who raise at least $30 for
Phoenix Children’s Hospital’s 30th Birthday will be entered into a
raffle to win a $25 gas card. If you raise $100 you will be entered to
win one of three $150 Visa giftcards and get a 15 minute sitting pass.
The Centennial Professorship marketing should be out next week.
Students can learn more at the lecture on the 25th and nominate
professors here: tinyurl.com/cpnomination13

“Centennial Professor Award:
Final 2012 Update
“This week I was able to meet with Emily from GPSA to begin planning the Centennial Professorship program for this year. The Dance Marathon Kick-Off event went well. We hosted a Flash Mob on the MU Patio and a celebrity scoop night fundraiser at Rita’s on Mill. Registration is now open and ten teams have already registered. Housing is almost ready for student input on their Gender Inclusive Housing policy to be put on their website. Monica Burba is working on creating scripts for videos to teach students how to use their appropriations. Bryn Barasha has been doing an excellent planning fundraisers for Dance Marathon and working to secure sponsorships.”

“The University Affairs interns are hard at work on the MU Basement proposal and helping with Dance Marathon. Monica has created a survey for students to take about their satisfaction http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/N9QYK8Z and Bryn has scheduled two fundraisers for Phoenix Children’s Hospital. On Monday University Affairs helped Civic Engagement hand out cards and shirts reminding people to vote. On Tuesday I presented at PAB asking for their collaboration for Dance Marathon and they seem excited to be a part of the event. The first Flash Mob practice went great and the second will be tomorrow at 9 in Small Gym D. All are welcome! The Registration Kick Off event is scheduled for Thursday at noon. We will have free shirts and Red Bull for all who register on site.”

“University Affairs met with University Housing to discuss the current status of Gender Neutral Housing. We are working with Housing to create the language that will be placed on their website to advertise this program. We are also looking at creating trainings with the Sun Devil Reps that showcase how diverse ASU is. UA is also continuing to work on Dance Marathon; a large scale event to raise money for Children’s Miracle Network and Phoenix Children’s Hospital. We will be hosting our first meeting for those interested in joining the planning committee on October 5th at 1pm in MU 226. For more information please email email@example.com. The date is set for February 15th, but the time is still to be determined based on a future meeting with Kellie Lowe to discuss the MU’s availability. UA is beginning to work on the scripts for videos on how to spend appropriations this week with the new addition on two interns.”
