Demand a campus-wide referendum for the proposed Spring 2014 student fee increase caused by Union Well Expansion Project

I. The university is considering building an expansion to the Union Well that will cost students nearly $200 million over the next three decades.
II. If the university has its way, beginning in January 2014, the project will cost each enrolled student $250 per semester for the next 30 years.
III. Instead of having the student body vote on this fee increase through a campus-wide referendum, the university is pursuing an “alternative consultation” process, which has consisted of hosting informational “open forums” on the following dates: Sept 5, 9, 10, 17, 18, 25, and 26.
IV. The problem with this process is that only a few hundred students have been informed of the expansion and the potential fee increase, and only these few hundred students have had the ability to adequately express their opinion in the matter. Despite the low number of student feedback, the non-profit corporation Union Well Inc. will still go through with issuing a report on student opinion to their board of directors. This board will then provide one of the primary recommendations for whether the University president decides to approve the mid-year fee increase.
V. We the students of California State University, Sacramento demand that Union Well Inc. and the President of the university pursue a better method of informing the student body about the proposed Union Well Expansion. We believe that every student should have the opportunity to vote on the potential fee increase, via an updated campus-wide referendum.
