-Talk to Special Collections about corresponding their film series with the symposium

-Whitney is going to speak to the Biology Department
-We need to find out who to contact at UVU and try to get them involved and invite them to participate. If we put up flyers there, we should know their policy first.

-We want to have this put together by December, so getting panels, panelists, presentations, and presenters is our top priority right now.

Not a lot of assignments were made this week, so we're looking for volunteers, ideas, and plans of attack!
