CSA LOCAL AFFAIRS COMMISSIONER
There has been discussion about creating a food-bank on-campus to provide emergency assistance to students and university members. The intent of the emergency food-bank is to provide short term support for students and university members who are facing a shortage of food. Furthermore, the food-bank will also provide advocacy for students.
Do you support a refundable fee of $1.15 per semester to support the establishment of an emergency food-bank that would be located in the University Centre?
CSA EXTERNAL COMMISSIONER
Do you support the University being pressured to run a deficit budget so that it may lower the cost of tuition without affecting services?
C.J. MUNFORD CENTRE
The C.J. Munford Centre is a resource centre for minority students on campus, which also serves as a focal point for anti-racism and race relations resources and a drop-in centre for all students. It was created in 1995 in dedication to retired history professor Clarence J. Munford. In addition the centre also does public programming throughout the year including workshops, guest speakers and educational campaigns.
Do you support a semesterly fee of $0.25 going to the C.J. Munford Centre to ensure the operation of the C.J. Munford Centre?
GUELPH FREE PRESS
The Guelph Free Press is a not-for-profit group of students and community members who are committed to publishing works by local and student writers and artists who might not otherwise have the opportunity.
Do you support the collection of a one-time fee of $0.37 to support the work of the Guelph Free Press?
The Divergent Path program is open to all students of the University. It provides spiritual counseling, workshops, advocacy, discussion groups, and professional life coaching.
Do you support a $0.50 fee per semester to increase program offerings and enhance student access?
INTERNATIONAL STUDENT ORGANIZATION (ISO)
The ISO is officially recognized by the University and Office of Student Affairs as a student run, non-profit, independent, advocacy organization comprised of international students, as well as Canadian students interested in internationalism. Currently operating under the Centre for International Programs. The ISO provides support and advocacy to international students, as well as organized cross-cultural events for the university campus at large.
The ISO realizes that there are currently no specific scholarships for in course international students, and is thus in the process of forming an endowment fund for such a purpose.
Would you support the contribution of $0.50 per full time undergraduate student per semester (indexed to cost of living) by the ISO? 90% would be directed towards the establishment of the endowment fund, and 10% would be used to fund the ISO.
