What are the terms of the contract? Can we see it/have it on file?
What control will World Learning maintain over staff's employment? benefits & salary...?
Is this different for Food Services vs Facilities? And if so…How?
We, as students, deserve transparency regarding the savings this contract provides SIT/World Learning, INCLUDING any bonuses or allotments resulting from signing of the contract
What are the conditions of the capital contribution?
Is it structured like a loan?
Is it a gift with no strings?
Does it extend the contract until paid off?
Does the gift interfere with our ability to remove them for not being able to deliver service/savings?
Who can we talk to if the Sodexho Managers are a poor fit (ie: abrasive, abusive, sexist, racist?) or if we notice things not being managed according to contract?
Can we put "commitment to all the SIT/World Learning Values (explicitly stated) in the contract? This point of service will use sustainable and green services whenever possible, if it is not a green option, an explicit supplier search much be conducted, and the product list must be approved by a fleet of SD students.
What are the aesthetic contributions Sodexo plans to make?
Will they be willing to use 'unbranded' uniforms and signage?
Can they make "Peoples History of the United States" or similar required reading for all management level employees? (srsly - its an customer interface thing - I met the new El Cafe Manager, and by golly wow, he's got some privilege to work through.)

Is there any way for students who remain on campus to be provided with a communal cooking area?
Can students who move off campus get out of their housing contract without paying the $450 fee?
How do we keep the ‘opt out’ option PERM for incoming students? It's important they have the ability to divorce themselves from financially contributing to Sodexo. This is a good step in moving forward to keep our historical memory more vibrant and current.
It's imperative current students do not fade away, while new students come into a situation left without nurture from the resistance we have started.
