Abstract

Worcester Polytechnic Institute provides students the opportunity to get involved on campus via clubs, organizations, and events. The Student Government Association funds these opportunities and their budget is comprised of the Student Life Fee, which is paid yearly by each student. Many students do not know the purpose of this fee, and due to this, SGA has made financial transparency one of their goals. Our team created a site and data visualizations that help bring awareness to the student body about where their part of the student life fee goes. This is just a start to bringing clarity to the student life fee, and we believe our project will provide a strong foundation to continue increasing transparency and spark important conversations about how students want their money allocated.
