This is just a short list of some audits that could be done on campus.
There is no such thing as an insignificant audit. If an auditor can find
merit in what it is they are looking at auditing, then it should be respected.
I encourage anyone who has an interest in auditing any part of the UW-River
Falls campus to e-mail Kelly Cain to see how you can help.
