GUSA approves fee reform, awaits December referendum
As expected, the Georgetown University Student Association overwhelmingly approved Student Activities Fee Endowment reform on Sunday. The reform, which proposes an increased student activities fee, will face an online referendum from December 7 to December 9.
The reforms will be adopted if at least 2,000 students vote and a majority of voters support the bill. It’s unclear if the vote minimum will be difficult to reach; GUSA executive elections routinely surpass 2,000 votes, but this year’s GUSA Senate elections only received 2,150 total votes.
If passed, SAFE reform will also allocate the entirety of the student activities fee to student activities. Currently, half of the fee is allocated to a student activities endowment.
