Policy & Enforcement Report: Jason Karsky
talked about using a shuttle bus for a type of safe
ride home service on Thursday nights/Friday early
mornings. A memo has been forwarded to President Stearns
and the group is waiting for a response. At this time,
the shuttle bus run by the Main Street Wayne Program
during the day is not planning to be a part of this
project. Karskys' two Research Methods classes will
be doing a student survey regarding a shuttle bus
service to better assess student needs and preferences
in this area.
The next meeting for this work group will be set
after a response from Dr. Stearns is received.

of the semesters.
