Become a FAN!
The Falcon Action Network that has been established to help the University of Wisconsin-River Falls advance its Wisconsin legislative agenda is showing results. Alumni, friends, faculty and staff have signed up for FAN. Supported by the Office of Public Affairs and the UWRF Alumni Association, FAN is the first advocacy network put into place at a UW System comprehensive university. FAN members have visited legislators, made phone calls, written letters and sent emails. They’ve helped UWRF:
- receive $1.1 million in planning money for a new Health and Human Performance facility and keep the building on track for construction in the following biennium;
- oppose a proposed five percent cut ($2.8 million) to its operational budget;
- get new funding for a First-Year Experience to improve new student retention as part of the UW System’s “Growth Agenda” to create more graduates.
