TRUST Coalition > Meeting Minutes > November 13, 2002


Toward Responsible Use of Substances Today
(TRUST) Coalition Minutes
November 13, 2002
2:00 p.m., Cottonwood Room

Committee Reports:

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 it.


Education & Information Report: Student writing competition, see information below. Donations are being accepted to increase the prize money amounts.


Social Environment Report: Flyer for social activities. Rachel Arterburn will have an example ready for the 12-3-02 meeting.


Subcommittee: Fatal Vision Goggles Demonstration during half-time of football game this Saturday. Student-Athlete Advisory Committee members have agreed to participate in the obstacle course demonstration. Dan Baddorf will announce the event.

Next Meeting: Final large group meeting of semester will be 12/3/2002 at 2:00 p.m. in the Goldenrod Room. Results of the Core Alcohol & Drug Survey for 2001 will be discussed. Check the TRUST Coalition website for minutes of meetings.
