The student services finance committee met on Monday to discuss budgets for the University of Wisconsin and Wisconsin Black Student Union adventure learning program.

The SSFC is responsible for allocating separate fees for student services, activities, programs and facilities. Separate charges are funds charged to students in addition to tuition fees, which fund student services.

ALPS offers community groups, both affiliated with the university and not, adventure-based activities that “inspire cooperation and team building skills”. ALPS has adapted its online workshops following the COVID-19 pandemic and now offers virtual team building workshops as well as ground activities at low and high ropes courses.

According to presentation by ALPS host Isabelle Johnson.

The first one to augment on their budget is the AEE Heartland Regional Conference, which was moved to a virtual format during the fiscal year 2022, but should be in person for the following year, which explains the 80% increase in funding for the event.

The second to augment is due to the addition of a marketing director position. It is important for ALPS to be able to reach a large group of people using strategic social engagement. This is best done with the addition of a marketing director, according to Johnson.

“We want to serve more students and we have the capacity to do so,” Johnson said.
