Appropriations Committee Report- Coffee Hour Eligibility Hearing
The Appropriations Committee recommends that the SA not approve eligibility for Coffee Hour by a vote of 0–10–1.
The Committee felt that Coffee Hour’s proposal had merits and was an interesting way to increase the mixing of undergraduates at Cornell. However, committee members were hesitant to approve eligibility for Coffee Hour due to a lack of organizational experience and past track record. The Committee felt that Coffee Hour had not explored their idea and tested it in the community enough to warrant byline funding. Though committee members felt that the idea of bringing students together and bridging organizational gaps was a worthy goal, most didn’t think that the idea was ready to be implemented on a large scale. The Committee encourages Coffee Hour to reach out to other funding sources such as WSH SUB, Dean of Students Office, and CUTonight for future support.
