SSFC Reports to the UW-Madison Chancellor

Each spring, the SSFC Chair prepares closed meeting report and presentation to the current Chancellor documenting the year of segregated fee disbursement in the Associated Students of Madison.

Electronically, we have copies of these reports dating back to 2018 for the student body to review.
These summarize the happenings of that year as well as important assessments and accomplishments of the committee.

The Chancellor keeps earlier copies of these reports in the Chancellor’s office.
