Campus Quality Fee Allocation Student Preference Survey Exhibit C

Fee Allocation & Accountability Process

November 7, 2008

Exhibit C

The chart below links together the Campus Quality Fee funding proposals with the funding options that were presented on the preference survey. Not all listed associated proposals were funded; a list of funded proposals is provided under the 2008-2009 Allocations tab.

The preference survey asked students to indicate in priority order the manner in which they thought the funds should be spent. The funding options were developed from the proposals rather than asking student to evaluate each proposal. The number in front of each funding options reflects the students' rank order of priority.

The section headings, e.g., Technology & Technological Applications, were also derived from the proposals. They are primarily ways of organizing the proposals. The preference survey did, however, ask students to rank order the categories based on the relative importance of the category in terms of improving the quality of their campus experience. The sections appear in the order of importance to the students.
