Students currently pay $3 to $5 for a 20 oz cup of coffee at Starbucks Coffee in the Pryzbala Center. Compare this to $2 for a 20 oz Dunkin Donuts Coffee at other universities [1]. This high price helps maintain Starbucks above average profit margin of 10.66% [2] and funds their numerous political activities. Starbucks is currently using these funds to overturn a federal law defining marriage as between one man and one woman [3], and also for gift-matching to Planned Parenthood [4]. We, the students of Catholic University of America, feel that we are entitled to a cheaper cup of coffee, whose price corresponds only to the quality of the product and not to the political agenda of the corporation.

The Academic Senate of Catholic University of America has recently approved the creation of a new School of Business. We feel that a student run coffee shop would be an great way to enhance the new School of Business and provide students with excellent learning opportunities in running a business. We, the signers of this petition, respectfully urge the administration to consider replacing Starbucks with a student run coffee shop.
