MADISON, WI — “The proposed ‘May 4th Event,’ an initiative led by the Wisconsin Union which has been working in collaboration with the Associated Students of Madison, the Dean of Students Office, and other groups in UW Administration, will release details soon on the progress of meetings to formulate the May 4th Event. The location, funding sources, and structure of the event have not been released at this point. As well, thus far no Segregated Fees are currently or planned to be spent on the event.


“ASM will always aid in initiatives to advance campus safety at UW-Madison, and working with this event is an opportunity for ASM to continue lobbying on behalf of the student body. ASM members have been involved with the Committee for several weeks, to ensure efforts are supportive of our mission to aid in campus safety. This event is one of many that ASM is involved with and will continue to be. We always encourage members of the student body to contact us with their thoughts on campus initiatives.


“The Associated Students of Madison Student Council passed a resolution on December 6, 2012, supportive of the end of the year collaborative event that exemplifies the values of the ASM Campus Safety campaign, which will involve a campus wide collaboration to provide a fun event for student body. Chancellor David Ward, Dean of Students Lori Berquam, Vice Chancellor Vince Sweeney, Chief of UWPD Susan Riesling, and numerous officials have all expressed support for the event.”
