STEVENS POINT, Wis. (WTAQ) - A state audit report shows that UW-Stevens Point is making strides in addressing concerns about a decline in student influence on campus.
Auditor Jan Mueller said the interim chancellor, Mark Nook, has worked to resolve student concerns for the last year by investigating the issues and holding meetings with students. But Mueller said two clarifications need to be made.
They involve the process in changing the structure of the Stevens Point student government, and the method for removing the adviser to the Student Government Association.
The audit was sought by state Senate Majority Leader Russ Decker. His son Jeffrey is a former student leader who said that student influence was being reduced in recent years. Decker’s office said the senator got involved only after other students asked him to help.
