SoA Referendum 2018
At our last referendum in 2015, Art students voted to support a $2.66/credit hour contribution (this works out to $80 if you’re in 30 credit hours). The contributions were allocated to the Endowment, Student Initiatives, and the Visiting Artist funds for a 2-year term.
Some of the initiatives these funds support are:
- Student conferences/travel
- Student lounge upgrades/furnishings
- Costs of bringing in artists
Based on the success of these funds, we propose to adjust for inflation and make a $2.75/credit hour contribution (this works out to $86/year if you’re in 30 credit hours), for another 2-year term, starting in September 2018 – contributions will be allocated as follows:
- 10% Art Endowment
- 80% Student Initiatives
- 10% Visiting Artists
We also propose to establish an Art student bursary. We will establish this bursary by transferring a surplus of $38,550 from the Student Initiative into this bursary.
Please be sure to inform yourself on this important matter and vote online on March 19th or 20th (alongside with the SOFA elections).
