Referenda

Referendum 1:

DePaul University currently offers a 25% tuition discount for members of the FOP (Fraternal Order of Police). DePaul defends this tuition discount on the belief that a Vincentian education would be beneficial to the Chicago Police students. Others argue the FOP is a racist institution and that DePaul is displaying problematic behavior, inconsistent with the Vincentian values it claims to uphold. Do you support DePaul offering a 25% tuition discount for members of the FOP?

Referendum 2:

Most universities assess (charge) a fee specifically designed to fund environmental and sustainable initiatives on campus. DePaul currently lacks this, in addition to other structural components such as an institutional sustainability plan, sustainability coordinator, and associated office. Given this information, would you support the charging of a quarterly $5 sustainability fee? With this fund, a coordinator, two student assistants, renovation for an office space, supplies for the office, and four student-led projects would be funded. After the first year, the money used for the renovation of the office would go towards more student-led projects. This fund would also be principally managed by students, with the office geared towards collaboration with other members of the DePaul community (i.e. Facility Operations, faculty, etc.). Disclaimer: Passage of this referendum does not guarantee that a sustainability fee will be introduced and assessed, rather, this is a means to gather student opinion on this matter.
