Business as usual at SGA.

Stu­dent Gov­ern­ment Asso­ci­a­tion meet­ing on Mon­day was remark­ably brief and to the point.

Chan­cel­lor Wachter’s report included an invi­ta­tion to the Open Bud­get Forum on Tues­day at noon in Erlen­bach Audi­to­rium of Swen­son Hall. Wachter reminded the SGA about last year’s bud­get lapse and Uni­ver­sity of Wis­con­sin – Supe­rior return­ing $700,000 to the state from the exist­ing bud­get, and the need to return another $300,000 for this year. The bud­get forum will include an update on the cur­rent finan­cial state of UWS.

Chan­cel­lor Wachter con­tin­ued with a report on the flex­i­ble degree pro­gram that is being devel­oped by the UW sys­tem under direc­tion from the Governor’s office and in coor­di­na­tion with UW-Extension. The pro­gram is geared towards work­ing adults, allow­ing them to get col­lege level credit for knowl­edge gained out­side of the classroom.

The SGA passed a res­o­lu­tion call­ing for a cross-campus sus­tain­abil­ity com­mit­tee, look­ing into ways to make the UWS cam­pus a more eco­log­i­cally friendly envi­ron­ment. The res­o­lu­tion, ask­ing for a vot­ing stu­dent rep­re­sen­ta­tion of one-third on the com­mit­tee passed unan­i­mously, and will be for­warded on to all rel­e­vant gov­ern­ing bodies.

And finally, Direc­tor Hans­berry announced that there will be a spe­cial stu­dent admis­sion price of $5 for roller derby at the DECC on Fri­day at 7 p.m.

The meet­ing was adjourned at 8:45. The next SGA meet­ing will be on Decem­ber 12. The meet­ing announce­ment and agenda are cus­tom­ar­ily posted in the Stu­dent Digest.
