Beverage Committee announces proposals funded

From Campus and Residence Life and the All College Council

As part of the University of St. Thomas' agreement with Pepsi, funding is available to support proposals for durable goods that enhance the student experience. The Beverage Task Force Committee, comprised of faculty, student and staff representatives, annually allocates $50,000 to fund these proposals submitted by members of the University of St. Thomas campus community.

The committee generally meets once in the fall semester and once in the spring to determine the allocations. This academic year, the following proposals received funding:

  • Athletics – exercise Equipment for Koch Commons fitness center, McCarthy Gym, and the aerobic room in O'Shaughnessy Hall
  • Student Health Center – television set for waiting area
  • Residence Life – television sets for Cretin, Dowling, John Paul II and Murray halls and for transfer houses; DVDs for student check-out at Koch Desk
  • Campus Life – opaque projector and stand
  • Crew Team – boat (partial funding)
  • KUST club – radio equipment
  • Food Service-Scooter's – chess set
  • Bernardi campus – tables and chairs
  • School of Social Work – restoration of a Matt Lamb painting
  • Center for Community Partnerships – furniture
  • Dean of Students Office – recording equipment for student hearing boards
  • UST Libraries – software to digitize the Aquin
  • Graduate School of Professional Psychology – a sculpture
  • All College Council – television sets for Murray-Herrick Campus Center lounge
  • Residence Hall Association – video camera

We thank all of the people who submitted proposals for their time and effort. This year, more than $143,000 worth of requests was submitted for possible funding. Durable items and goods that last longer than three years and that enhance the student experience receive highest priority in determining which proposals are awarded funding.

Any recognized student organization or university department may request funding from the committee.
