The Committee shall serve as a means by which the ASUW Student Senate shall formulate recommendations on mandatory student fee requests from university fee units. The committee shall meet every year to review the mandatory fees with recommendations being made to the ASUW Senate during odd years in which the fees are adjusted. During the years in which fees are not adjusted, the committee shall meet with the mandatory fee entities to review their programs, budget, and use of fees. Additionally the committee will be charged with exploring entity's requests and possible merits for new fees.
The Committee shall hear mandatory fee requests from campus fee units, and may recommend adjusting the requested fee, give a vote of non-support for the request, or endorse the requested amount for each fee unit. The Committee shall draft legislation supporting a recommendation on a mandatory student fee package, or individual fees, to the ASUW Senate for a vote.
The ASUW Mandatory Student Fee Committee shall be composed of both voting and non-voting members. Voting members of the committee will include four (4) ASUW Senators, two (2) of which should be returning senators, and three (3) Students-at-Large appointed by the ASUW Vice President. The non-voting membership will consist of one (1) ex-officio member appointed by each mandatory fee unit. The ASUW Vice President shall serve as chair of the committee.
