Operating as usual

The UDC-CC SGA has fought long and hard towards the goal of holding UDC accountable for the fiscal fate of student fees.

Below is a major step in the right direction, but it is NOT the end of the campaign. UDC has opened a small gap in their defenses in response to the UDC-CC SGA's continual bombardment of resolutions, letters to DC City Council and testimony submitted to the Committee of the Whole, requests for investigation by the DC Office of the Inspector General, and our Freedom of Information Act request for documents outlining UDC's accounting, allocation and spending procedures for the 'Student Activity Fees Fund.'

Where is the money going? Last academic year, UDC-CC collected in the area of 1.5 million dollars in mandatory 'Student Fees.' $140,000.00 came back as the 'Student Activity' budget, but where is the rest?

Why do the fees not pay for up-to-date lab equipment? Or for access to on-line education sites like Cengage? Or to subsidize textbooks-which we all a know are outrageously priced only to produce a profit for the company that manages the UDC-CC bookstore at the expense of the student body, the majority of whom are going to school on a Pell grant.

The UDC-CC SGA has an obligation, as a representative body, to ensure that this committee does not stall, hesitate, or indulge in parliamentary shenanigans, thus enabling UDC's administration to continue its misguided policy of keeping the students in the dark about their own money.

Nominations for the University Committee on Fee Reform

Throughout the development of the fiscal year 2015 budget and setting the tuition rates for academic year 20 14-15. concerns were raised from a number of University community members
about the way in which the University assesses, collects, and spends student fees.

In academic year 20 13-14, there are currently no less than six different mandatory fees assessed on
matriculating students under the current structure, with an additional 15 miscellaneous fees that cover items such as lab supplies and duplicate identification cards.

Students who are enrolled in less than a full-time load pay fees under a different structure that may not adequately match up
with the full-time fee rate.

With these and other issues identified, I believe it is important that we address the University's fee structure as a community in the spirit of shared governance.

To this end. I am asking each recipient to nominate one representative to serve on the University
Committee on Fee Reform. The Committee will serve on a temporary, ad hoc basis to analyze and assess the current fee structure. develop alternatives, and make a final recommendation
based on Committee consensus to me no later than August 1.2014.

I will use this recommendation to assemble a fee reform proposal to present to the Board of Trustees for their consideration in advance of their September 16, 2014 meeting.

have asked that Michael Rogers, Vice President for University Advancement, be responsible for convening the initial meeting to elect a chairperson for the Committee. In addition. the Office of University Advancement will coordinate all appropriate staff support for the Committee. Please provide your nominations for one or more of the positions to Michael no later than May 23, 2014.
Nominations are needed for the following positions:

Position
I Community College Student Government Representative (Student)
2 Undergraduate Student Government Representative (Student)
3 Graduate Student Government Representative (Student)
4 Student Bar Association Representative (Student
5 College of Arts and Sciences Representative
6 Community College Representative
7 School of Business and Public Administration Representative
8 School of Engineering and Applied Sciences Representative
9 College of Agriculture, Urban Sustainability, and Environmental Sciences Representative
10 School of Law Representative
II Office of the President Representative
12 Office of the Provost Representative
13 Office of the Chief Financial Officer Representative
14 Faculty Senate Representative
15 Office of Student Accounts Representative
16 Office of Financial Aid Representative
17 Office of the General Counsel Representative
18 Office of Student Affairs Representative
19 Department of Intercollegiate Athletics Representative
20 Office of Facilities and Real Estate Representative
21 Office of Institutional Research, Assessment, and Planning, Representative
22 Office of Government Relations Representative

Thank you for your interest and participation in this important process. I am confident we will be able to reform our current fee structure to ensure continued fairness and efficient
administration.

WHAT HAVE WE BEEN UP TO?

APPROXIMATELY 2812 STUDENTS WERE ENROLLED AT THE CC THIS PAST ACADEMIC YEAR , AND EACH AND EVERYONE PAID "MANDATORY COLLEGE FEES" TO THE TUNE OF $600.00, RESULTING IN OVER 1.6 MILLION DOLLARS COLLECTED BY THE SCHOOL IN "STUDENT FEES." UDC ADMINISTRATION RELEASES $140,00.00 OF THAT MONEY AS A "STUDENT ACTIVITY FEES FUND." WE HAVE BEEN ASKING THIS:

WHAT HAPPENS TO THE OTHER 1.46 MILLION DOLLARS THAT WAS COLLECTED? WHO SPENDS IT? THE MAIN CAMPUS? THE COMMUNITY COLLEGE? YOUR MAMA?

IF YOU INVEST OVER 1.6 MILLION DOLLARS IN A CONCERN, YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT THE MONEY IS BEING USED FOR. UDC REFUSES TO TELL US.

WE HAVE ASKED. WE HAVE FILED A FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT REQUEST, AND INSTEAD OF GIVING US THE DOCUMENTS WE WANT, THE SCHOOL TELLS US THAT, CONTRARY TO THE TRUTH, "THEY DO NOT EXIST."

THIS IS ONE ISSUE THAT THE 2013-2014 UDC-CC SGA WAS WORKING ON.
