#media_1173;left#In an underhanded maneuver by Student Development Director, Katie Sermersheim, the Undergraduate Student Government and Graduate and Professional Student Council may lose their power to allocate the more than $300,000 Student Activity Fee to the over 400 Registered Student Organizations on campus. On Tuesday, June 13, the DE reported that Sermersheim has presented a plan to Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs Larry Dietz outlining the creation of a Student Activity Fee Allocation Board that could potentially come into permanent command of student activity funds if it is approved by Deitz. This proposal comes on the heels of both in and out of house editorial tirades in the Daily Egyptian regarding the delay in resolving allocations for two whole meetings near the end of the spring 2006 semester.
