Resolutions passed by council:

Resolution in Support of Chancellor’s Investment Framework – 10/15/2019

The Council wanted to formally express support for the Chancellor’s proposed investments, which include adding positions to respond to specific recruitment and retention plans and investing in faculty and staff to support those. How can you help? Familiarize yourself with the details of the framework and do what you can in your area to support these efforts.

Resolution on UW-System Presidential Search and Screen – 11/12/2019

Our council is asking the Board to reconsider their decision and expand committee composition to include all employee groups and students. How can you help? Express your own opinion on this matter prior to the Board’s next meeting December 5-6:
