TRUST Coalition > Meeting Minutes > September 11, 2003


Toward Responsible Use of Substances Today
(TRUST) Coalition
September 11, 2003 at 2:30 p.m., Meadowlark Room


Members present: Mark Bacome, SADD; Todd Barry, Athletic Department; Lin Brummels, Counseling Center; Drew Caskey, practicum student; Karen Granberg, Counseling Center; Jenny Hoffman, student; Sr. Cynthia Hruby, Catholic Ministry; Jeff Meyer, faculty; Kathy Mohlfeld, Counseling Center; Jason Mrsny, Security; Jon Pitts, SAAC; Troy Reynolds, Ministerial Association; Melissa Slaymaker, student; Ron Vick, Counseling Center; Joe Wall, SAAC; Keith Willis, faculty.


Four students have graduated and 5 members are no longer in Wayne area. We discussed consolidating several of the current committees and decided against it at this time. Members chose committees to participate in to work on projects of interest.

The group decided to assist with another Fatal Vision Goggles demonstration at the Oct. 18 football game. Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) is doing the shoe display representing the number of alcohol related traffic fatalities in 2002. Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) will be doing the obstacle course with the goggles on.

Lin Brummels recommended that the TRUST Coalition website be mailed to members so that they could be sure to read the minutes.

Updates from Workgroups/Committees:

Policy & Enforcement Report:

  • Next meeting: Contact Jason Mrsny at 375-7216 or Jason Karsky at 375-7139
  • Safe Ride Program update: With options dwindling, Mrsny and Karsky contacted a Chicago company called BusBank. BusBank is a free nationwide service that works with private bus companies to set up bus service for consumers in need. Initial conversations with BusBank reveals a potential promising alternative to our safe-ride transportation difficulties. Some of the more promising aspects are in regards to what they provide. For example, BusBank and their affiliated companies supply the bus, the bus driver, and a $5 Million insurance policy. As the subcommittee discussed in previous meetings, a security guard would also be hired to ride the bus with the bus driver. According to BusBank, WSC's hiring of a security guard would add to the appeal for a contract with a perspective bus company.
  • At this point we are waiting for a proposal from BusBank. Hopefully we will be able to report more on their proposal once we receive it. It was noted that the goal of this program is to get people home safely. The target time to run the program would be Thursday nights from 9:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. Friday morning starting in January 2004. The student survey last year indicated that students would be willing to use a portion of their activities fee to fund the program.
  • Jason Mrsny talked about the Lincoln Police Department "Party Patrol".

Education & Information Report:

  • Next meeting: Contact Keith Willis at 375-7210.
  • The spring survey of WSC student social norms on alcohol use came up with positive results in that most students are not binge drinking every weekend. Highlights of the survey will be listed on the website and in a brochure.
  • We did not get selected for the Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America (CADCA) free training and technical assistance program.
  • Sr. Cynthia Hruby will look into bringing a speaker to WSC to discuss responsible hospitality. She will contact Bob Jergens of P.O. Pears in Lincoln. Jergens is the chair of the Lincoln Responsible Hospitality Council. Kathy Mohlfeld will contact various student organizations to see if they would be willing to co-sponsor the event. It was suggested that we might do some form of symposium on these issues every two years.

Social Environment Report:

  • Next meeting:Contact Lin Brummels at 375-7321.
  • The "So What Is There To Do At Wayne State?" flyer is done and looks fabulous! It was distributed around campus and to incoming freshmen during orientation.
