Davis Advisory Committee December 3, 2008 INTRODUCTIONS INFORMATION ITEMS Kate held several focus groups before Thanksgiving break that focused general on the building and personal feedback. She will be meeting with individuals in the building to forward info along. We are close to purchasing, with Student and Campus Life, access to the Student Voice services for assessment. It is a robust service that will allow hand-held/in-the-field and web based assessment. We hosted 4 visitors from Qatar this week. They were here to look at how we do “green”. We have moved Diwali Night to the list of preferred events for access purposes. We are examining the issues that emerged holding activities that are “games of chance” in a permitted alcohol location. We partnered with the Counseling Center to install 4 SAD lights in the building. We are fine-tuning the special exceptions process with CAES. Fall ACUI Conference – We hosted the Regional ACUI. We were involved in presenting 4 sessions, had multiple tours of the building, and overall folks were in awe! Social Justice Mural – We continue in the RFP process for a social justice mural to be located in the southern end of the tunnel. Class of 2008 Gift installation – The Class Gift will likely be installed over the Winter week. Sustainability Gallery – Plans are being finalized to further enhance the Sustainability Gallery space at the North end of the tunnel. Phased work will continue throughout the year. Traffic Numbers – This fall thus far = 583,266 (VT = 624,000) DISCUSSION Chalkboard Concept – concerns? Open Tenant's Space Process We will discuss the open retail space in the building and where we are in the process to begin an RFP process.
