Whereas, The Board of Governors waives student health fees for some students but does not reimburse colleges for that lost revenue;

Whereas, For many students, the only access to health care is the college's student health center; and

Whereas, The Board of Governors' practice of waiving health fees for those students places an unfair burden on the students who pay those fees to support the health center;


Resolved, That the Academic Senate urge the Board of Governors to either discontinue waiving student health fees or to reimburse colleges for this lost revenue in order to adequately maintain campus health services.
