(10) In 1981-82, the Board of Trustees established a $1.00 mandatory fee to be collected in the fall semester from registered students at the Urbana campus for the support of student government. In 1985 and again in 1989, the fee was reaffirmed in the required quadrennial referendum of support. On February 23 and 24, students were asked to indicate their agreement with the following statement: Do you reaffirm the one dollar ($1.00) per semester nonrefundable Student Government Association fee? The vote was as follows: In favor 1 168 Opposed 828 In light of the referendum, the chancellor at Urbana recommends the continuation of the student government fee, subject to the terms and conditions for its use as previously established by the Board of Trustees. I concur.
