University Affairs narrows campaign focus

The Associated Students of Madison University Affairs Committee met Monday to select potential campaigns to focus on for the upcoming school year.

University Affairs campaigns focus on promoting student interests on the university level, looking to identify changes that students would like to see on campus.

After identifying potential campaign subjects for this year, committee members put those ideas into groups based on what aligns with the ASM goals of promoting public education and student action in all parts of campus life, as well as with the interests of the student body.

Of the topic groups discussed, the committee established four main areas to potentially pursue. Among these were enforcing textbook affordability, expanding dining hall food options and exploring the possibility of expanding language certificate options.

Other possible topics include increased safety measures on campus, such as sexual assault prevention and increased safety lighting at night, and working for transparency in tuition costs.

University Affairs Committee Chair Angelito Tenorio emphasized that while the committee would like to pursue multiple campaigns, it is also important to allocate resources effectively.

“We don’t want to stretch ourselves too thin, because the more people working on a particular campaign, the more we’ll be able to get done,” Tenorio said.

Committee members will look to further narrow these topic groups at their next meeting and will then form more specific ideas to pursue over the coming year.
