Graphic Communication - College Based Fees - Letter 2012-13

College Based Fees Letter to Students 2012-13

College Based Fee (CBF) Committee 2012-­13

March 25, 2013

The AY 2012-13 Student College Based Fee (CBF) Committee for the Graphic Communication Department (GrC) was comprised of three GrC students:

  • Julie Logue (chair)
  • Danica Schroeder
  • Kendra Jaqua

Together, they represent the GrC student constituency pertaining to the distribution of funds that come from student-based fees.

The committee has elected to use the CBF money for the funding of additional class sections in order to accommodate and sustain the facilitation of classes and labs in an already tight and conflicting classroom environment, and for funding half of the salary of the GrC departmental computer and network technician.

Should any surplus funding become available, the CBF student committee has developed a list of needs for the department that include classroom improvements, equipment purchases, lab improvements, intra-departmental organization support, and other miscellaneous projects deemed important by the GrC student constituency.

Therefore, ranked in order of priority, the GrC CBF Committee recommends the following classes and personnel be funded using the 2012-13 College Based Fee allotment:

  1. Funding of existing class sections (labs and lectures) and applicable adjunct lecturers for the following classes: GrC 201, 211, 203, 218, 316, 320, 324, 328 (Equivalent to .991 FTE)
  2. Funding of one-­half of annual salary of the GrC Computer Technician
  3. Intra-­departmental student group needs It should be noted that the GrC CBF Committee recognizes the financial constraints placed upon the GrC Department and College of Liberal Arts with reference to resources. It would be ideal, however, if more of the burden to fund lecturers and labs would come from the GrC department resource budget and less from the annual CBF allotment.
