Mark informed the Committee that DoIT had purchased the software to make Creighton websites accessible. The Committee, after listening to a demonstration of the software at a previous meeting, endorsed the purchase.


Mark reported that the task force pursing grants is focusing on the possible opportunities with a hard look at the Lied Education Center because small grants from the State may be easily obtained. The task force meets on alternating Thursdays to continue finding grat opportunities.


George lead a discussion about a session that could be directed toward people with aging parents requiring care to help these people identify where they can find help or aid. The session could be the primary subject at the forum planned in October. Companies like Home Instead may be a sponsor of the event.

The event will be presented October 4th at CUMC and October 11th on the core campus. Each session will be about 3 hours in length.


The Committee agreed to change the meeting dates for next school year. Meetings will be at 11:00 on the last Tuesday of each month starting in August.


The Committee instructed Lennis to prioritize the projects listed by Carlson West Provondra. The prioritization should be accomplished about a list of criteria; cost; short term future of the building; size of project. Are three criterions to be considered?


Meeting adjourned at 10:30 A.M.


The next meeting is July 26, 2007 at 9:30 A.M. in the Swanson Hall Technology Room.
