  1. Pam Rodgers and Curt Reithel provided a detailed update of the 2004 London Study Tour. Two main assets of the tour are:


    1. Several Political Science courses are linked with the tour. This appears to be a creative and thorough effort.
    2. The cost of the tour for students seems affordable, due to the creative financing efforts of the Political Science Department (using foundation monies to fund one staff members.

a.       Correct the math errors in the budget
