Increase Campus Fees to Fund More Counselors at the CWC

This petition had 3,257 supporters

Currently, UF has a limit on how many counseling sessions a student can attend at their time at UF. This limits the amount of help someone needs and it can make someone with a mental illness feel ostracized due to lack of support. As a result, the CWC has been seeking permanent funding in order to pay for mental health counselors it plans on hiring in the future.

SG officials on the local fee committees just recently rejected an idea to increase campus fees by 71.4 cents per credit hour to fund the CWC. For an 18 credit course load, that's about two drinks at Starbucks.

Sign this petition if you believe that what this committee did was wrong and would be okay with this increase.

The committee is made up of:

Student Government External Affairs agency head Haley Smith:
Student Body president’s Chief of Staff Nick Meno:
Action SG chair Jackie Phillips:
Student Body Vice President Mario Agosto:

UF needs to improve its mental health support system if it truly wants to make every gator count.

Contact these people as well if you think that this decision was not truly for the gator good.
