When the Ink Initiative was passed by the student body in 2016, it included the following language:
“An oversight committee will meet at least two times a year to examine the fee money’s allocation and to produce an annual report to the Chancellor, ASUC, and public. The oversight committee will have no decision making power in how the fee money is spent. Meetings of this committee will be
open to the public and be publicly noticed in The Daily Californian. The committee shall consist of:
- All members of The Independent Berkeley Student Publishing Company Inc. Board of Directors. This board is composed of The Daily Cal Editor in Chief, Daily Cal alumni, UC Berkeley faculty, and working news media professionals
- One UC Berkeley student selected by the Committee on Student Fees
- One UC Berkeley student selected by the ASUC Senate
- One UC Berkeley student selected by the Graduate Assembly”
The Daily Californian held a board meeting Saturday and a representative from the Graduate Assembly was able to attend. A representative from the Committee on Student Fees will meet with the Daily Cal’s editor in chief Monday at 2 p.m.
