A RESOLUTION TO: Support the formation of an ad hoc university committee to research and facilitate the improvement of the Cisler Center as a student union.

WHEREAS, new restrictions put in place by the university have deprived students of some student life activities without adequately compensating for this loss on the studentsí part; and

WHEREAS, having an attractive, functional space for students to congregate for a variety of different purposes is an important factor of student life at most other universities as well as an essential item on the checklists of many prospective students as they search for a university to attend; and

WHEREAS, it is generally agreed upon by students and many members of the administration and faculty that the facilities available are not currently very inviting and provide only a minimum number of services; and

WHEREAS, the improvement of the Cisler Center as a student union could benefit the students of this university by providing a place to socialize and relax in an environment that would be more comfortable and would also provide more conveniences and activities; and

WHEREAS, researching and developing a plan for any improvements to the Cisler Center should be the shared responsibility of university administration, from which funding would have to be allocated, as well as that of the student body at large; be it therefore

RESOLVED, that the Lake Superior State University Student Government does support the formation of a university committee to research and set in motion improvements to the Cisler Center as a student union; and further

RESOLVED, that student input should be sought for this project and seats should be open on this committee for members of the student assembly; and finally

RESOLVED, that the Resource Committee selects student representatives on this committee.
