Coordinating Council hears updates on ASM efforts

The Associated Students of Madison Coordinating Council discussed efforts of ASM committees, including changes to disciplinary policy, the latest Campus Diversity Plan and funding for the recent Recreational Sports Master Plan Thursday.

University Affairs Committee Chair Hannah Kinsella presented a possible addition to the University of Wisconsin System Chapter 17 Disciplinary Policy, which would provide those filing a report of a sexual assault with the ability to appeal the decision after the event is reported.

The proposed policy, which will be presented to the Board of Regents, would help to keep University policy in line with federal policy.

The council also discussed the draft for the new campus Diversity Plan. The latest draft of the plan is to be released next week to the student body and faculty for viewing. Listening sessions will be set up for students to review the plan and to ensure its quality.

In addition, representatives from the Ad Hoc Diversity Planning Committee, who wrote the draft, will hear the responses to the draft at next week’s Student Council meeting to hear responses to the plan.

ASM Chair David Gardner also discussed the push to receive more funding for the Recreational Sports Master Plan from the Athletic Department, which was up for vote earlier this week.

“This is not ending with the referendum and there’s still a push for more funding to take the burden off of students,” Gardner said.

After passing, the next step for Rec Sports will be finalizing the Master Plan’s funding.
