Meeting with Dr. Glen Tibbits:

-Dr. Tibbits wants to have a meeting with the BPKSA to discuss concerns, things going well, pros/cons of the program

-Josh sent out a survey to the undergraduates & heard back from 65 people; some general patterns with the responses were:

-inconsistency in marking, courses heavy relative to other departments, issues with

gender & religion in upper division courses labs that require touching (want to see a

gender separation in courses), course scheduling, course offerings

-Every coming up Monday works well for us; Loryn will confirm with Dr. Tibbits & get back to us



KIN Games:

-Lea emailed Loryn about using the BPKSA travel funding from the SFSS for KIN Games

-Shaila made the motion for KIN Games to receive the BPKSA travel grant from the SFSS. Ian seconded the motion. The motion was unanimously approved


High School Visits:

Darleen wanted us to brainstorm ways of reaching out to high school students; the Dean of Science wants to do promotions to high schools to attract students to Science

-wanted to do calling campaigns like ours, but it might turn out unsuccessful

-would be a better idea to maybe send student recruiters to the high schools

-the faculty could pay undergraduates to go to high schools in their areas to promote

Science to the grade 12’s; -$25 to compensate gas is how the department pays back

-can also send out letters next year; this is what we’ll be doing for the new BPK students

coming in next year

-Josh will email Darleen & let her know what we discussed



The meeting of the BPKSA was adjourned by Loryn at 1:30 pm in the BPK Conference Room. The next meeting will be held on Monday March 2nd , 2015 in the BPK Conference Room at 12:30 pm.
