WSA Publication Fund Referendum

Appreciating the unique role of student journalism at Wesleyan and recognizing the inherent complications that arise when a student government directly funds campus media publications, Resolution 15.37 (passed by the WSA on April 3, 2016) seeks to resolve some of the conflicts which arose in the 2015-2016 school year. The solution is the creation of a "Media Publications Fund", which will act as the principal body allocating funds to media publications on campus. Starting in the 2017-2018 school year the Media Publications Fund will be supported by a $13 per-semester student voluntary opt-out fee modeled after the Green Fund. 

Note that any student who wishes not to pay this fee, for whatever reason, does not have to: anyone may anonymously opt-out at any time.
