1 UIS STUDENT UNION FORUM

2 Why a Student Union?  Build Community  Create an activity destination center  Provide a home for SGA and Student Organizations  Provide amenities, services and study spaces for resident and commuter students

3 Goals for the Building  Exponentially build community, increase student life and opportunities for students  Create genuine new student access space on campus  Provide high-tech learning and study areas  Increase student employment opportunities  Enhance the social and personal development of students  Construct a unique and inspirational building to last decades  Help with recruiting of new students and the retention of current students

4 Student Union Costs and Scope  Costs are estimated to be between $13 to $20 million  Size is estimated at $400 per square foot or 32,500 to 50,000 square feet  Fund raising goals range from $1 million to $2.5 million

5 Results from the Student Survey  Support for Student Union if:  No fees charged until the building is open  No fees charged to on-line students  Amenities and offices limited to those ranked highest in the survey

6 Proposed amenities include:  New Dining Choices  Convenience Store  Lounges  Meeting Rooms and Study Spaces  Multi-Purpose Room  Pub/Sports Bar  Student Organization Spaces  Student Social & Outdoor Spaces

7 Student Union Advisory Referendum The Student Government Association of University of Illinois Springfield is proposing the construction of a new Student Union. If built, this facility would likely include (based on a recent campus-wide student survey) enhanced dining choices, a game room, lounge and study spaces, a pub, student organization space, large programming space, outdoor gathering areas, and various other amenities. The Offices of the Student Government Association, Student Organizations and Office of Student Life would also be in the new facility. Since state funds CANNOT be used to construct a Student Union, the building would have to be funded entirely through student fees and donations. However, these fees would not begin until the Student Union Building is open. We are anticipating the Student Union would be completed by Fall, The university is committed to raising some of the total building cost through fund raising. The student fee would be implemented as follows when the building opens: $ per student per semester for full-time undergrad students $ per student per semester for part-time undergrad students $25.00 per credit hour for graduate students with a cap of 8 hours Students enrolled in an on-line degree seeking program will not pay any student union fees. I support the Referendum Proposal I do not support the Referendum Proposal
