The Office of Interim Vice-Chancellor Student Affairs Christopher Rosa has established an information and Commentary site for the proposed revisions on Student Activity Fees.

The website features a wide range of relevant documents, including the legal background for viewpoint neutrality, from the 2000 Supreme Court decision Wisconsin vs. Southworth to the most recent case involving Queens College, as well as the charge regarding Student Activities fees, from the Board of Trusteesthe proposed revisions, and current student opinions.

Most important, however, the Office of Student Affairs has asked for comments—from students, faculty, and other members of the CUNY Community.

Please consider sharing your views regarding this important process.

Hugo Fernandez is an associate professor of Art and Photography at LaGuardia Community College and the UFS Representative to the CUNY Board of Trustees Committee on Student Affairs; Emily S.
