SG approves budget with $47,000 decrease

By Kelli Long

Student Government unani—
mously assed its 200809 budget
Wednes ay night with an overall
decrease of over $47,000.

While the change is significantly
less than the $130.0“) decrease from
the year before. 50 wasn‘t hit too hard.
said 50 President Tyler Montell.

Student groups apply to SC for
funding throughout the school year.
which is why Montell said they in-
creased the amount of funding for stu-
dent organizations by $30100. Montell
said he knew that while 50 was adjust-
ing to the budget cut. more organiza-
tions would probably be reaching out
for funding this year.

“(The state cuts) didn‘t affect us
directly. but it affected the places
students usually go to for money.“
Montell said.

This year. 50 allocated for
$1 l4,750 to various campus services.
about $3301) less than in 2(l)7-08.

Organizations like the Violence
Intervention and Prevention Center
and DanceBlue received funding.
Montell said the decisions were
made based on who he felt needed
the money most.

“We gave DanceBlue $7500 so
that they don‘t have to pay for silly
things out of the donations that they
raise." Montell said.

A new item to receive 50 mon—
ey is the Innovation Incentive Proj-
ect. a campus service that received

$3.000. That money is reserved to
buy iPods so organizations can pur—
chase them and give them away as
incentives to come to meetings that
meet a set criterion and are deemed
"diverse.“ Montell said.

"There are a lot of cultural and
diversity events on campus and a lot
of students don‘t go or feel they are
supposed to go. “ Montell said. “We
want them to go and maybe acci—
dentally learn something."

Many groups. like the Interfratemi-
ty Council. did not automatically re-
06ch money as a line item in this budg-
et. Montell said this was an attempt to
give the Senate more power over
whether the group is granted funding.
since those groups will have to request
the money from the Appropriations and

Revenue Committee.

"This is one of the things we
wanted to transfer to the Senate."
Montell said.

Each year. 80 receives funds
from three sources to make up their
budget. The university and student
fees contribute. and 50 has a self-
generated fund.

80 acquired revenue in addition
to the student fees money from Uni-
versity Directories. which ap—
proached SG and asked them to de-
sign and distribute planners specifi—
cally for UK. The planners took all
the university calendars. like those
for football and the academic calen-
dar. and put them into one item.
while University Directories sold
the advertisements featured in the

planner. 80 gave out 10.000 plan-
ners and the total revenue from
them was $9500.

Salaries for SO officials had
some changes from last year. The
Senate president will receive an ad-
ditional $ l .000. raising her salary to
$4.000 a year. The salaries for chair»
men of SO committees. however.
were cut completely.

A new piece of legislation. the
Senate Accountability Act. was also
passed at the meeting. This act.
written by the Senate as a whole.
holds the senators responsible for
their attendance at meetings and cer~
tain events that 80 funds.

The Senate also approved nom—
inations to the executive staff and
the Senate.

Efforts to increase minority enroll“
merit are paying off. according to UK
diversity officials after the release of
enrollment figures for the new school

For the 2008-09 academic year.
the number of first—year black students
reached 34l out of 4.044 total first-
year freshmen. according to the figures
released earlier this week. That is up
from 258 the year before.

Black undergraduate enrollment as
a percentage of student population
grew as well. from 7.6 percent to 8.6
percent. ,

The change has been due in part to
providing more resources for minority
recruiting. especially in the last few
years. said Buzz Bumam. director of
recruitment for diversity initiatives.

“It‘s not by accident. It's by de»
sign." Burnam said. "It‘s been one of
the focal points in our office. to make
sure we attract everyone especially
diversity students."

Burnam said when he started
working at UK 23 years ago. minority
recruitment was considered a part of
multicultural affairs and not recruit-
ment. Now. home visits and special
events at UK are standard practice for
recruiting minority students. he said.

Coming to UK and talking to stu—
dents of similar backgrounds makes
high school students feel more com-
fortable. Bumam said.

“It gives students a sense of home.
No one wants to be the Lone Ranger."
Burnam said.

UK reported preliminary figures
for overall retention rates for freshmen
as 81 percent. However. UK hasn‘t
broken down retention by ethnicity or
gender. said UK spokeswoman Kathy

“They're still juggling people leav-
ing or dropping to part-time. so we'll
