Professor Response to Student Personnel/Higher Ed. Track Student Issue
 In response to a letter drafted by 2nd year students asking for:
- Availability of classes that are Student Personnel/Higher Ed. content related
- Scheduling flexibility of such course work within Program Handbook
 CSPP professors completed a response in letter form (please see attached document), main points being:
1. The Student Personnel students will be placed together in Practicum class small groups for S06 semester
2. Professors suggest that students coming into the program check for class availability ASAP
– Darwin Hendel in Ed. Policy and Administration ( is a good contact.
3. Professors welcome continued open discussion regarding this issue

Questions and Comments re: Response to Student Personnel/Higher Ed. Track Student Issue
 Reps and professors discussed possibility of designating a person such as a CSPP PhD student or even professor/advisor to help students find courses and plan out their schedules (e.g. someone to guide Student Personnel/Higher Ed. students as Kay does for the School Counselors)
 Note to Students: Please feel free to fill this section of the meeting notes by coming to our next meeting, and/or letting your student rep. know how to best represent your concerns.

Mentor Program
 Discussion of how the mentor program might be enhanced (for the benefit of incoming 1st years)
 Suggestions included signing up mentors in Spring 05, mentor/mentee contact before the start of Fall 06 classes – for help with students moving, finding a place to live, getting to know the area, and an in person meeting of mentors and mentees the 1st week of Fall 06 semester

H20 Fountains
 Sherri checked with building people (?) and that is not mold, the green looking substance is what they use to clean the fountains.
 Mary is still looking into how much it might cost to have a water cooler (Culligan type) available
 Kay to place post-it on vending machine asking for an over-stock of bottled water since there is often a shortage – and to note, the more post-its the greater impact, please feel free to join her efforts.

LPC Informational Meeting
 Kay came to Community/Student Personnel Practicum large group meeting 12/8 to give us info.

Practicum Information
 Practicum Orientation Meeting went well for 1st years on 12/1
 For PhD students: Advanced Practicum can be taken twice for credit both times (note: 8 student limit)

Hi, fellow CSPPers:

I am looking for 2 or 3 volunteers to help next semester with a career class I will be teaching at the Hmong Academy, a charter high school in Minneapolis. This is my second year there, and the students and staff are great to work with. We will be working with 10th graders, and starting January 3rd - end of May (although you don't have to start until you're back for the semester). The classes will be on Tuesdays, between 12:50 - 3, and we will likely be working with two classes each Tuesday. I would love volunteers to be a part of planning this course, as well as helm a few classes, if they'd like. I also talked with Michael Goh, and you could probably use this setting to fulfill one of the project requirements in his sociocultural contexts class next semester. If you are interested, please email or call me at or 651-503-6719.

I look forward to hearing from you,

Pahoua Yang
