Tell Emory Admin #NoFeeHike!

This semester, Emory raised student fees for all Laney students. Upper-year graduate students (who are done with coursework, and in many cases spend relatively little time on campus) face the worst fee hikes, now having to pay activity and gym-related student fees. Much of this money funds undergraduate NCAA sports.

Despite the fact that many of us live paycheck-to-paycheck, work second jobs, and/or go into debt to complete our degrees, Laney gave us no advance warning of this policy change. We were informed when we got our bill. This is wrong! Tell Emory #NoFeeHike!

Use the form below to send a message to the following Emory administrators:

LGS Dean Lisa Tedesco (ltedesc@emory.edu)
Provost Dwight McBride (dwight.a.mcbride@emory.edu)
Assistant Dean Mary Horton (mhorton@emory.edu)
Senior Associate Dean Cathryn Johnson (cjohns@emory.edu)
President Claire Sterk (president@emory.edu)

Here's a sample message, but feel free to compose your own! Tell them about the difficulties you face getting by on your stipend and why you need financial predictability from the school!

Dear Dean Tedesco, Provost McBride, Dean Horton, Dean Johnson, and President Sterk,

I recently received my student fees bill for this semester and found that it was significantly higher than I was expecting. As you know, many of us live paycheck-to-paycheck, work second jobs, and/or go into debt to complete our degrees. Nevertheless, Laney gave us no advance warning of this policy change; we were informed when we got our bill. I hoped that you would be more sensitive to the financial instability we face trying to complete our degrees with the funding Emory offers. I am asking, on behalf of all Emory students, that you reverse this policy change and waive the fee increase for this semester.
