Response to College Senate Recommendation: Motion on Student Fees for 2012–2013
At its February 8, 2013, meeting, the College Senate approved a motion on student fees for 2012–2013:
WHEREAS, the student Health Fee, Athletic Fee, and Technology Fee were all increased in fall 2012 without meaningful student input or consultation with governance bodies,
THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Senate retroactively approves the student fee increases enacted in 2012–2013 of $41 per year for full-time students along with a corresponding part-time-fee increase, with a strong recommendation to use the consultation process going forward.
I thank the College Senate for its input on this issue. I look forward to receiving the Senate’s recommendation on future adjustments to the student fees using the consultation process that has been established and documented on the Finance and Management website.
