The Minnesota Student Association will discuss installing cell phone charging stations on campus at its forum on Tuesday night.
The student association will present a budget request for installing cell phone chargers in high-traffic areas at the University of Minnesota.
Mick Hedberg, co-director of MSA’s facilities, housing and transit committee, said he hopes to test the chargers in the Science Teaching and Student Services building after getting a cost estimation for the project.
“A lot of students are out and about for the entire day and their phones die out,” Hedberg said. “It’s a common sense thing that’s pretty cost effective to do,” Hedberg said.
MSA will also vote on a resolution in support of a new system for student release questions.
Currently, professors have to opt-in if they want student release questions to be made public. This resolution would support a system where students’ answers are automatically released and professors would have to opt-out if they want students’ answers private.
MSA’s University Policies and Student Concerns Director Marissa Kramer said she expects “overwhelming support” for the resolution.
