In the 2014 ASUC election, students voted the Student Technology Fund (STF) into place for seven years as a student-initiated fee referendum. After the Spring of 2021, unless renewed, the Fee will no longer be assessed. STF-funded software licensing negotiated at scale and technology projects benefiting students will either cease, or will have to seek alternative funding.
Students interested in exploring whether to renew the fund, and, if so, how it should be structured, have formed the Referendum Renewal Exploration Group (RREG). To learn more, visit their website or request to join their listserv.
We also invite students to share their perspective with their elected officials in student government. Undergraduates can contact the ASUC and graduate students can contact the Graduate Assembly.
Finally, STF hosts events such as public forums, which give members of the Cal community the opportunity to ask questions and get involved in determining the future of student technology.
