Petition to have the University of Calgary Board of Governors Attend a Townhall Meeting Addressing the $8.1 million Executive Office Renovations

144 Signatures Goal: 1,000

It has recently been revealed that the University of Calgary Board of Governors had approved an $8.1 million renovation of executive offices in the administration building on campus. Of the $8.1 million, $3.5 million was used to bring the building up to current standard codes, the other $4.6 million was to create new executive offices. The offices include a $150,000 staircase, a more than 400 sq/ft office space for Elizabeth Cannon and a 12.8-meter-long wood veneer table. The undersigned is a request that the Board of Governors attend an open town hall meeting after December 6 to explain to the University of Calgary student body why the aforementioned expenditures were necessary and answer all unexplained questions in an open and non-confrontational manner.

    This is a waste of money. This should have been spent on renovating the near decrepit Science A labs. Bringing the building up to code is one thing, getting a steam shower is another. The University would like the students to keep our "Eyes high," more likely that would prefer if we had our "eyes closed"

    When courses and services are being cut, how does the board justify this expenditure?
