What projects should UST fund with Pepsi contract money?

St. Thomas students, faculty and staff are invited to submit proposals to the Beverage Task Force Committee. The committee acts as an advisory board to the administration by recommending projects for funding, using the proceeds from an exclusive beverage contract with Pepsi. Over the past several years the contract funds have been used to fund a wide variety of needs and projects that may not have regular sources of funding. The average cost of items funded last year was approximately $1,500.

If you would like to submit a proposal, pick up a request form in the Campus Life Office, Room 110, Murray-Herrick Campus Center, or visit the Campus Life Web site.

To receive consideration:

  • Proposals must be for the purchase of durable goods that will enhance the student experience.
  • The item purchased should have a life cycle of at least three years.
  • Any recognized student organization or department may request funding.
  • Requests from departments must have the signature of the department head, who has to agree to maintain any equipment after its purchase.

Applications will be accepted throughout the academic year. Questions? Send e-mail or call co-chairs: Mary Ann Ryan, Department of Campus Life, (651) 962-6133; or Adam Groebner, All College Council president, (651) 962-6145.
