Proponent: Tuqa Al-Musawi


“Do you support an increase to the Students of Colour Collective Fund of $1 per full-time student and 50 cents per part-time student for the purpose of creating support resources for visible and invisible minorities on campus?”

Proponent: Shayan de Luna-Bueno


“Are you in favour of establishing a fee of $1.50 per full-time student and $0.75 per part-time student in order to fund the creation of open-source textbooks and other open-source learning materials, which would be used in UVic classrooms?”

Proponent: Jonathan Granirer
