Process: bf.esc.cooper.edu and login w/ Cooper email and password
Deposit tab to add seller and book being sold
Seller’s contract if first time selling
Place stock ID and price on a sticky note in the inside cover of the book
Cart tab to sell--check paid after money is exchanged
When someone collects their money they have to collect all their unsold books at the same time
Price Change tab to change price
Can also set up text notifications, hold on books for 30 min
Old ESC Stock has high prices so books aren’t selling, will set low prices for these books ($5 for HSS books for ex) to offload stock
Make sure to charge people based on the price listed on the website, not the sticky notes
Make sure price isn’t too low so we undercut the student body
Can get rid of PChem books since so course uses these now
Lot’s of textbooks were left behind from the locker cleanout last semester and they’re just sitting in B&G, can we sell them? (The books are untagged so it’s tough to return them to their original orders)
If we sold them, can the money go to something specifically student oriented? Like whiteboards by the new couches?
Not all of these books are textbooks, can book fair volunteers organize these into relevant books and irrelevant books during their downtime to sell?
Could we just pass the books on to the library?
Let’s reach out to B&G about all these ideas and see what they say.
Council on Shared Learning Update
Need nominations (including self-noms) to sit on the council (3 eng reps)
Little information on this council, this is unfair to students. Need to poke Chris and Laura for concrete information
Faculty likely already selected
We get to decide how to select the reps from the noms
Debate is helpful to hear their ideas; have candidates submit a statement
If we have candidates write a statement, Laura and Chris should come up with a question for them to answer to ensure the statement is relevance.
Voting process similar to trustee? Turnout could be too low for that
Could set a voting time where candidates present and anyone who wants to show up, ESC or not, can cast a vote
That being said, what about a voting table with paper ballots?
If ESC reps just vote, it becomes too similar to an ESC committee and it might not reflect the variety of ideas students could bring
Have candidates come talk to ESC?
Have candidates present during club hours and have students vote in person?
People may have too many conflicts to come during club hours
Close noms by next meeting
Honor code style: have reps ask sections what they think, and represent their sections opinion
Feels too vague to proceed with election process, ask admin for more info
How would more information help the election process? Would it?
If nominees had more information on what they were getting into, the process will be more genuine
People can still withdraw nominees, so we can decide a process and pass along more info from admin and proceed with our process
Do ad chairs ask admin for more info and clarification? 17-2-0 YES
Do we proceed with given timeline (results at end of next meeting)? 12-0-4 YES
What election procedure? 1) Just ESC Votes 2) Everyone who can show up to a room at a date and time votes 3) Ranked Popular Vote open to the public
5 votes for option 1, 9 votes for option 2, 3 votes for option 3
Run off b/w opt 1 and 2
9 votes for opt 2; 8 votes for opt 1
OPTION 2 WINS
Will have voting meeting Jan 29th during Club Hours
Informal HSS Curr change for HSS3
Adjuncts would teach for 3 hours, get more small class time and not big lecture
Admissions is meeting Feb 5th or 12th
Floyd said anything about B&G? No, but Jenna wants to be on it!
People can’t access lockers b/c it’s covered by construction stuff
Petition to bring finals week back with a reading week
Can she leave it at book fair? Does ESC wanna back it?
ESC can consider voting on it after it has signatures
Brian Frost resigned from rep status and sat on curriculum committee, new candidates must submit a simple majority petition to take the position,
Jacob Maarek and Sanjeev will serve on curriculum committee
