It will need to be sent to the Institutional Review Board next before it can be administered.

Neighborhood Relations Report:

Linne’ Ourada, “The Stater” Editor; Dr. McElwain, Advisor to “The Stater”; Dr. Deb Whitt; and Dr. O’Donnell have been invited to the meeting.


Troy Reynolds spoke with Karen Karr about the Welcome Wagon practice and if students were included in the service. At this time, students are not included. This will be an area that this committee will work on so that off-campus students would also be welcomed to the Wayne community.

Education & Information Report:


ext meeting is Tuesday, 10-15-02 at 8:30 a.m. in the Bluestem Room of the Student Center.


Heather Hein was welcomed as a new member of this group. She will be doing an Honor’s Project on this topic. Heather and Dr. Keith Willis will be focusing on constructing a survey to discover positive social norms and then create a flyer for distribution of the information.


A student writing competition sponsored by the Inter-Association Task Force on Alcohol & Other Substance Abuse Issues was discussed. Several substantial scholarships are the prizes for 3 winners. A student from UN-L won the competition last year. Check out for more information.


We discussed events for Red Ribbon Week and National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week (NCAAW) this fall. Simera Reynolds of Mother Against Drunk Driving, suggested an idea to Kathy Mohlfeld earlier in the month. Her idea was to use .08 BAC simulated intoxication goggles and have students drive golf carts through an obstacle course during half time at a football game. This would be an educational event to show how impaired driving is when using alcohol. Jason Karsky suggested that we also use a visual aid of pairs of shoes displayed in a busy area of the stadium to show the number of people killed in drunk driving accidents last year. Todd Barry, Athletic Director suggested a date of November 16, 2002. Kathy Mohlfeld will check with Reynolds for further programming ideas to ensure that this activities’ focus is educational and not entertainment.

Current Members:
  Keith Willis, temporary convener of workgroup
  Connie Bargstadt
  Ron Vick, Sr.
  Chuck Parker Cynthia Hruby
  Jeff Meyer-teaching class

Social Environment Report:

One finding of the Title III Grant focus groups—WSC needs to do a better job of showing that there are many activities already in place for students (the breadth of activities available is surprising to many students). This committee will tackle this project of getting a master calendar of social events in Wayne and at WSC and making it visible to students via a website and a brochure.

Current Members:
  Elaine Balogh, chair (out of town)
  Donavan Roy
  Dennis Lichty
  Lin Brummels

Next Meeting: Next large group meeting will be 11/13/2002 at 2:00 p.m. in the Cottonwood Room.


Please contact Kathy Mohlfeld at 375-7557 or if you have any suggestions or concerns for the TRUST Coalition.
