There will be a forum about the Student Fee to Support Truman’s Athletics Program proposal.
The forum will take place at 7:30 p.m. April 5 in Violette Hall 1010. The proposal calls for a ballot item to be placed before Truman students in the April 2007 student elections. The ballot proposal would ask to implement a fee of $50 per student per semester to support improvements that will enhance Truman’s athletics program and benefit the greater student body through the improvement of facilities used by not only athletes, but by the larger student body through their use in health and exercise science classes and Truman’s intramural program. The purpose of this fee will be to increase funds for athletics and related facilities, and not to replace existing funds to these programs already allocated by the University.
