Thursday 5:30 p.m.
-The Shared Governance Committee will be reviewing applications to fill the three student slots in the newly-created Student InformationTechnology Initiative Advisory Committee (SITIAC). This committee will review how UW uses tuition money to improve it’s information technology.

That message was from Ken Harris, head of ASM press office.
