    3. KCSB-FM hosts annually about 30 events every year with efforts to reach as many demographics in our diverse community. We consistently recruit and provide opportunities for students, faculty, and the 805 community to engage in radio’s behind the scenes, with orientations at the start of every quarter.

There are a number of programmers who have a deep history with activist media and movements that are nationally recognized for their work. Moreover, our range of music programmers as well as our 57-year-old CD & vinyl collection can provide an education in music unique from what can be provided from the Music Department or from Special Collections.

    Pro Statements

    Since the 1930s, the Daily Nexus has been a student-run, independent publication, receiving no funding from the university while providing the UCSB community with meaningful and essential news, editorials, feature coverage, opinion pieces and entertainment. The Nexus allows students the opportunity to work with a 100 percent student-run editorial team, operating around the clock to provide timely and relevant content to the UCSB community. It is vital that the Nexus receives students’ financial support in order to continue serving the student population by delivering quality news and entertainment.

    Come to an office tucked away under Storke Tower to find a group of students working daily to provide readers with quality news, in print and online. The Daily Nexus aims to reach every student demographic with honest, timely coverage of issues on campus and in Isla Vista. As one of the largest student newspapers in California, we do not require an application process to join, and instead rely on a peer learning process to encourage new members of our staff. With your vote, the Daily Nexus will be able to better serve UCSB, Isla Vista and the unrepresented voices within our community.

    Pro Statements

    The Rec Sports and Intramural fees make such a large impact for UCSB students by both maintaining exceptional recreation programming for thousands of students and also employs students in a great environment for personal and professional growth. Intramural sports provides affordable recreational sports for all students which otherwise would be far too expensive for most to enjoy. This fee initiative allows for all of this to happen while serving over 11 thousand participants each year. Not only has the intramural program at UCSB personally given me the opportunity to enjoy UCSB IM’s variety of sports with my friends, but it has also allowed me to develop professionally as one of the more than 110 Intramural student employees. This program has truly shaped my experience at UCSB and I hope that many other students and participants can also be given the same opportunity.

    Pro Statements

    Vote YES for the MultiCultural Center to continue providing an inclusive space at UCSB and a broad

    campus community by recognizing the need to cater to diverse identities and value
    orientations, building coalitions among student groups, as well as increasing communication among
    people of different cultures and backgrounds.
    In its 30 th year, the MCC continues to reflect its original mission of serving as a space that was established
    BY, and FOR, students to provide a welcoming, safe space to fight all forms of discrimination and
    oppression. Moreover, the MCC strives to ensure that students have the resources and services to thrive
    by offering free event spaces and AV support for student organizations, free food and refreshments

  • Office of Student Life

    Do you support continued funding of $2.37* (of which $0.59 is for return to aid) per AS/UCSB Membership per quarter (fall, winter, spring) and $2.37* (of which $0.59 is for return to aid) for summer quarter for Office of Student Life?


    Pro Statements

    I support the Office of Student Life lock-in fee of $3.95 because it is such a small price to pay so that students can continue to be involved in extracurricular activities and leadership development. Involvement outside of the traditional classroom is an extremely important component to the college experience, and the OSL makes sure that students can continue to run, or create, organizations that cater to their interests and necessities. The OSL peer advisors guide students through the requirements and procedures that are particular to maintaining successful organizations. Without the lock-in fee, and therefore without the staff’s guidance at OSL, it would be so much more difficult for students to continue to successfully host student-led events and conferences. This small fee, which will not increase our current student fees, also helps support first-year, transfer student initiatives, and student employment opportunities. It is not hard to understand that for $3.95, the OSL will be able to continue to serve the student community become successful individuals. The OSL is here as another one of the many resources available to students, and for that reason I support this lock-in fee.

    Angelina Garcia Nevarez, M.U.J.E.R. (Mujeres Unidas por Justicia, Educación y Revolución)

    <hr width="50%">

    I am writing to show my support for the reaffirmation of the Office of Student Life. As a student who utilizes the services provided by OSL, I have seen firsthand the benefits of participating in organizations and being a member of a community. My academic and social development in college has been substantially impacted by my sorority and by the various organizations that I am a part of. Without funding provided by the Office of Student Life, many organizations that promote inclusion, diversity, and so on would be unable to hold events at the expense of the student community. Since there will be no increase in the fee and the fee is minimal despite how widespread the Office of Student Life is, I believe wholeheartedly that the Office of Student Life should be reaffirmed.

    Kierston Cannon, Kappa Alpha Theta

    <hr width="50%">

    I support to reaffirm the Office of Student Life for its services that significantly benefit our student community. The Office of Student Life provides students with the opportunity to join an organization and/or start a new organizations to build community. Getting involved is important as it allows for students to gain hands-on experience, meet Gauchos with similar interests, and boost their CV/resume. Furthermore, the Office of Student Life provides students with opportunities in Leadership Development. My freshman year, I was presented with a certificate of completion for the Leadership Challenge Seminar. This workshop equipped me with the tools and knowledge on how to be a better leader in all held leadership positions in organizations. Furthermore, OSL oversees Greek Life which is about 15% of the student community. Not only is Greek Life another approach for building community but also fostering philanthropic efforts that help our Gaucho community and other communities. OSL staffs interns and advisors to provide students in Greek Life the opportunity to attend educational workshops on upholding the core values of Scholarship, Leadership and Citizenship, which is OSL’s commitment to providing students the highest quality experience in Greek Life. In conclusion, I support the reaffirmation fee of $3.95 per student per quarter. Yearly, OSL thrives in building and fostering community by providing these services and resources for students to demonstrate excellence at our university.

    Pro Statements

    This fee initiative is integral to the operation of Intramurals, Adventure Programs, Sport Clubs, and many recreation events for UCSB students. Each one of these programs directly benefits the students of UCSB. Making these opportunities available to students at an affordable cost is important to many people. On top of providing outstanding recreation programs, this fee allows for employment of over 350 students. The ability to play intramural sports, take advantage of equipment rentals and Adventure Programs, attend my friend’s club soccer games, and enjoy the many recreation events such as the Turkey Trot and Hallowheels has enriched my experience at UCSB immeasurably. Additionally, Yoga Nights, Warm Up, Mindful Monday, March Madness, the Dodgeball Tournament, and the Gaucho Cup are all amazing events made possible with this fee.
    I strongly recommend the reaffirmation of both the Intramural and Rec Sports fees based on the incredible impact they have for so many.

  • Student Initiated Recruitment and Retention Committee (SIRRC)

    Do you approve a mandatory fee of $2.52 per undergraduate per quarter (Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer) to support the AS Student Initiated Recruitment and Retention Committee (of the $2.52 collected, $0.63 is for a 25% return to aid, $0.12 is for a 7% administrative assessment collected by the campus on all non-capital expenditures, $0.02 is for the 1% AS recharge fee and $1.75 will go to the AS Student Initiated Recruitment and Retention Committee)?

     


    Pro Statements

    This year marks the eleventh anniversary of the AS Student Initiated Recruitment and Retention Committee (SIRRC). In 2007, SIRRC was created primarily to provide services and support to first-generation, low-income, and marginalized and underrepresented students, while still serving all students. The organization’s history includes the development of the Guiding Underrepresented Individuals Developing Educational Success (GUIDES) Summer Orientation (for first years and transfer students), GUIDES Mentorship Program (San Marcos High School and La Cuesta Continuation School), Book Bank, and the AS Food Bank. Additional projects include First Year Mentorship, CAMP, College Trip, PAGE+, study jams, and funding requests for other campus organizations.
    A dedicated $2.52 per quarter per undergraduate fee would allow for a secured annual budget in order to continue and expand the number of students who could access SIRRC programs. The secured annual budget will support SIRRC’s programs and help serve a growing population of students.
