|7||Condemnation of the dangerously late closure of Ithaca campus on 7 February 2020||In Discussion||On 6 and 7 February an anticipated winter storm hit Ithaca. Despite dangerous conditions before the start of classes and the suspension of all bus service soon after classes began, classes on Ithaca campus were held until 10:02 AM and campus remained open until 12:02 PM, at which time students, instructors and staff who had or were already required to travel to campus were advised to not travel. This late closure needlessly endangered the community and was especially callous toward those with mobility barriers.||02/10/2020 6:30pm||Graduate and Professional Student Assembly||AY 2019-2020|
|6||Support of the Divestment from Fossil Fuels||Submitted to the President||Given the global climate emergency and our desire for Cornell to remain a leader in promoting a sustainable future, we request that Cornell divest from all investments in coal, oil, and natural gas in an orderly fashion.||03/06/2020 1:45pm||Graduate and Professional Student Assembly||AY 2019-2020|
|5||Support of the development and implementation of a Cornell Campus Circulator System||In Discussion||For the past eleven years, a Cornell Campus Circulator System of transportation has been under discussion as a way to improve access to many university functions and to address the continual challenges related to transportation and parking that Cornellians face every day. We propose that this project become a priority for Cornell and be realized within the period of the next five years.||01/27/2020 5:00pm||Graduate and Professional Student Assembly||AY 2019-2020|
|4||Recommendation for the Graduate and Professional Student Activity Fee for 2020-2022||Accepted by the President||The GPSA, during the fall semester of odd-numbered years, through the authority delegated by the President of the University and the Board of Trustees, shall be charged with recommending the amount and the allocation of the Graduate and Professional Student Activity Fee, subject to the approval of the President of the University.||01/10/2020 10:30am||Graduate and Professional Student Assembly||AY 2019-2020|
|3||Demanding mandatory arbitration and class action bans be removed from CASHNet and other community agreements||Acknowledged by the President||Cornell’s CASHNet payment system mandates arbitration to resolve disputes and bans class actions, practices condemned by our own Law and ILR faculty. These terms should not appear in any agreement Cornell presents its community.||01/08/2020 9:15am||Graduate and Professional Student Assembly||AY 2019-2020|
|2||Condemning the Dismissal of Julia Feliz from the Cornell Alliance for Science's Global Leadership Fellowship||In Discussion||On October 15th, Julia Feliz was dismissed from the Cornell Alliance for Science Program for “utiliz[ing] the classroom environment to discuss [their] dissatisfaction with the program”. Many details of the case are still unknown; however, given the published information, we feel that the Alliance for Science’s administrative team mishandled the situation. It is extremely concerning that the stated reason for Feliz’s dismissal is their activism.||11/18/2019 6:30pm||Graduate and Professional Student Assembly||AY 2019-2020|
