A.S. Bike Committee

The A.S. Bike Committee will use this funding to implement a roundabout that will expand the intersection at the northwest corner of the SAASB (Student Affairs Administrative Services Building) building. This project will also widen bike lanes leading up to the roundabout and will add physical barriers so students can more effectively navigate traffic. The A.S Bike Committee will use this funding of $2.18/quarter for 12 quarters (including summer) in conjunction with the Office of Campus Planning and Design. This funding will begin fall 2014 and be terminated after the 12 quarters ending summer 2017. This funding will be in addition to the $1.25/quarter lock-in that the A.S. Bike Committee already receives. Any left over funding will be directed back into campus bicycle improvement projects. Do you approve of mandatory fee of $2.20 per undergraduate for Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer quarters to support the A.S. Bike Committee (of the $2.20 collected, $0.02 is for the 1% A.S. recharge fee and $2.18 will go to the A.S. Bike Committee? If passed, the fee would begin Fall 2014 and end Summer 2017.

Catalyst Literary Arts Magazine

The Catalyst Literary Arts Magazine is a quarterly student-run publication that provides a printed space for original student art and creative or academic writing. The Catalyst is a submission-based, and student-project oriented magazine, open to the entire UC community. In previous years, The Catalyst has received funding through individual students, the UCSB English department, and through local donations. If passed, this fee will be used to fund the production of The Catalyst, which may include the cost of equipment and supplies, the support of a student committee and committee advisor, publication costs, and provide for a printed color issue consisting of approximately 80 pages available to students in print and online. Copies of the magazine will be distributed on campus, in Isla Vista, and at Catalyst related events. Do you approve of a mandatory fee per undergraduate student of $1.08 for Fall, Winter, Spring quarter to support the Catalyst Literary Arts Magazine ($0.75 goes to the Senior Book, $0.27 is for Return to Aid, $0.01 is for the 1% AS admin fee and $0.05 is for an administrative service fee)?

Composting Program

This fee will support and sustain the Associated Students Department of Public Worms (DPW) composting program, which began in 2004 and partners with A.S. Recycling on the UCSB Waste Management Plan. DPW focuses on composting UCSB’s food waste and on using the beneficial compost in the campus and community to further encourage sustainable food production. The organization also conducts regular workshops on composting and teaches attendees how to reduce food waste in their homes and backyards. Thanks largely to student efforts UCSB already leads the UC system in composting, but stable funding is needed to address remaining gaps such as a lack of indoor collection locations and insufficient outreach to the campus community. Expanded effort will include a revamped processing facility and a student-run, compost-fueled demonstration farm. Do you approve of mandatory fee of $1.29 per undergraduate for Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer quarters to support the AS Department of Public Worms (of the $1.29 collected, $0.32 is for a 25% return to aid, $0.06 is for a 7% administrative assessment collected on all non-capital expenditures, $0.01 is for the 1% AS recharge fee and $0.90 will go to the AS Department of Public Worms)? If passed, the fee would begin Fall 2014 and be subject to reaffirmation every two years thereafter as mandated by the AS Constitution.

Legal Resource Center: Sobering Center

The Associated Students Legal Resource Center provides legal education and consultation to students on topics such as criminal matters, landlord-tenant disputes, marriage or divorce, consumer complaints, traffic tickets, personal injury, harassment, and debtor –creditor issues, among others. There are several hundred arrests for public intoxication in Isla Vista each year. This involves removing a person off of the streets who is too intoxicated to safely care for one's self, a night in jail, an arrest on one’s criminal record, unavailability of police officers on the IV streets due to transport of arrestees, and expensive court fines, all of which are avoidable if there was a local Sobering Center. The creation of a sobering center would allow for more patrol officers on the streets to better protect and serve Isla Vista residents, and would provide a safe alternative to a traumatic night in jail for students. The money provided from this fee would go towards operations, facility rental, and staffing. This matrix below illustrates the fee:

  2014-2015 2015-2016 2016-2017 2017-2018  2018-2019
Base Fee  $3.75 $3.00 $3.00 $2.50 $2.00
Return to Aid $1.36 $1.27 $1.09 $0.91 $0.73
Administrative Assessment  $0.30  $0.28 $0.24 $0.20 $0.16
AS Recharge Fee $0.04 $0.04 $0.03 $0.03 $0.02
Total Fee $5.45 $5.09 $4.36 $3.64 $2.91
Do you approve of an increase of five dollars and forty-five cents [$5.45] lock-in per student per quarter (including summer) in Summer 2014 and decreasing to $2.91 in Fall 2018 for the Associated Students Legal Recourse Center for the planning and implementation of a local Sobering Center?

Do you approve of a mandatory fee of $2.12 per undergraduate for Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer quarters to support QComm and LGBTQ students at UCSB (of the $2.12 collected, $0.53 is for a 25% return to aid, $0.10 is for a 7% administrative assessment collected on all non-capital expenditures, $0.01 is for the 1% AS recharge fee and $1.48 will go to QComm)?

Do you approve of a mandatory fee per undergraduate student of $2.68 for Fall, Winter, Spring quarter to support the Senior Book ($1.86 goes to the Senior Book, $0.67 is for Return to Aid, $0.02 is for the 1% AS admin fee and $0.13 is for an administrative service fee)?

The Student Union Revitalization Fund (SURF) Initiative

The Student Union Revitalization Fund (SURF) Initiative The Student Union Revitalization Fund (SURF) Initiative would improve student service facilities of the University Center; reform and increase student oversight of the University Center; and create or improve space for student-focused activities. Final plans would be subject to approval by the student-majority governance board, but currently include new or expanded spaces such as: a 24-hour study/computer lounge; Campus Learning Assistance Services (CLAS) classrooms; a Health and Wellness Center; Centers for Veterans, Former Foster Youth, Transfer/Commuter students, and International students; an Environmental and Sustainability Resource Center; space for ASUCSB organizations such as AS Senate, The Bottom Line, Student Initiated Outreach and Retention Committee, and Finance Board; a permanent AS Bike Shop location; a new Visitor Center; expanded space for Counseling and Psychological Services; a multipurpose meeting and student group space; an indoor dance and performance space available to student groups at no additional charge; and an expanded AS Food Bank. The SURF fee is comprised of project expenses (either design costs or construction debt), programming and operations expenses, contribution to building maintenance reserves, campus administrative assessment, Associated Students administrative assessment, and return to aid (financial aid). The initial fee would fund the design of the project and would begin in fall of 2014 at $20.51 per undergraduate per quarter (including summer). Upon project occupancy in fall of 2018, the fee would increase to $64.41 per undergraduate per quarter (including summer). Once the debt is retired, which is projected to be in 2048, the fee would be reduced to eliminate the debt payment component. The reduced fee would then continue by reaffirmation every 2 years by the undergraduate student body as required by the AS Constitution. The matrix below illustrates the fee.
