Opt-Out – Fall 2012
Deadline: October 8, 2012
The Lethbridge Public Interest Research Group, or LPIRG, is a student-funded, student-directed, not-for-profit organization providing resources for students to engage with environmental and social justice issues.
LPIRG embraces plurality and participation, and encourages students to critically evaluate the institutions and systems in which they take part. LPIRG assists students in translating their knowledge through research, education, and action to serve public interest.
Each year, LPIRG provides approximately $20,000 in direct grants to students, as well as in-kind services, support, and training to student action groups, projects, events, and research. We also maintain an office and resource library which is open to all LPIRG members.
Undergraduates not wishing to pay the $5.00 LPIRG dedicated fee for the Spring 2012 semester may have that fee refunded. To opt-out, copy and paste the LPIRG Opt-Out Form into the body of your email and send it on or before the opt-out deadline – Monday, October 8. Your opt-out form must be sent via your personal uleth.ca web-mail account to be considered valid. Please note that in opting-out you forfeit your LPIRG membership and therefore your eligibility for LPIRG funds.
Coop students whose fees are not due until later in the semester must contact LPIRG by the opt-out deadline, February 10 in order to make arrangements to have their LPIRG fee refunded.
