By signing the petition, you are agreeing that you are a University of Wyoming Student and support ASUW Senate Resolution #2521. Here's a brief overview:

The Resolution states that we believe the UW President's response to the budget situation by declaring a financial crisis and assembling the Financial Crisis Advisory Committee (FCAC) was beneficial, but have taken exception to other actions including:

-The state legislature's increased divestment from UW, and the concerns we have on that matter

-Lack of student representation on the Revenue Enhancement Sub Committee of the FCAC, despite it recommending significant additional costs directly to students in the form of student fees

- Reserves constituted of student fee money being maintained to excessive levels and mismanaged without regulation

Our resolution includes statements saying:

-ASUW supports the President's financial crisis plan on budget reductions

-We don't approve of the new fee proposal being created without student input or representation

-Any and all new fee proposals should have ASUW input and prove the need and justification for these increases

-We want the board of trustees to create policies which create a floor, ceiling, and other regulatory policies to the reserves which are created from student fee money

-We want the state legislature to continue to support UW monetarily; investing in the state's education, which would help diversify the economy
