Policy & Enforcement Report: Safe Ride
Program survey is complete. Four-hundred students
were surveyed according to randomly selected buildings
and class times. The results are now being evaluated.
Residence Hall staff have asked if they can rent the
shuttles for Thursday evenings.
Neighborhood Relations Report: The group discussed
the alcohol advertising policy of The Stater
with Linne Ourada, Editor, Max McElwain, advisor,
and Deb Whitt, department chair. We discussed the first
amendment right of free speech and the nine areas of unprotected
speech currently recognized by the U.S. Supreme
Court, see attachment. It was noted that The Stater
student staff must make the decision as to what types
of advertising they will accept, not the advisor/school
administrators, as they are considered agents of
the state. McElwain indicated that at this time,
over half of The Stater advertising sales
is from alcohol advertisements. The topic of Responsible
Hospitality Guidelines (not rules) was discussed. It was
agreed that guidelines are a good idea and that local
bar owners and package store owners should be included
in constructing the guidelines. Whitt suggested that a
content analysis study comparing different advertisements
by businesses in different papers would be interesting
and helpful to the group. She noted that a conference
on health communication will be held in the Spring 2003
semester and she planned to take a group of students to
Education & Information Report: Student writing
competition, see information below. Donations are being
accepted to increase the prize money amounts.

will announce the event.
Next Meeting: Final large group meeting of semester
