Controversv over student fees at the University of
Nisconsin at Madison started when Scott
outhworth, then a student at Wisconsin, filed suit
gainst the school in 1996, claiming its mandatory
tudent fees violate his first amendment rights
ecause they go to support organizations he ideo-
e President for Student Affairs E.
ter Harper said a committee to map out
lans in the event of a ruling in favor of
outhworth is in its developing stages. If the
igh court rules in favor of Southworth,
Visconsin would immediately have to make
hanges to its policies.
Currently, Harper is working with Michigan
tudent Assembly Budget Priorities Committee
hair Glen Roe to form the committee. Harper said
he wants the group to include students and the
Jniversity's General Counsel in developing methods
fmrnative funding. "We want to be anticipatory,"
In May, MSA was one of 20 student govern-
tents across the country to sign an amicus brief
n support of Wisconsin's student fee procedures.
ach University of Michigan student pays $5.69
er semester to the assembly, which then allo-
ates the money to student groups.
The University of Wisconsin's student govern-
tent, the Associated Students of Madison, allo-
ates student funds. This year, Wisconsin charged
a'tudent a total of $445 in student fees.
ASM has a two-part allocation system: $86.68
re designated as allocable funds to various stu-
ent groups and $358.32 are non-allocable funds.
Non-allocable funds go toward Wisconsin's stu-
dent union and health services center. Allocable
funds are given to general student organizations and
student services. Student service organizations must
prove that they provide t service on campus, while
student groups seeking general funding can seek
grants for events, general operations and travel
"We cannot fund any organization that is political
partisan by nature" said Nikhil Joglekar, ASM stu-
dent service finance member.
Roe explained that MSA's allocations proce-
dures differ from those at Wisconsin. "We fund
political and ideological groups, but we allocate
solely on their application and primarily because of
their impact on campus," Roe said.
But he added that MSA does not make funding
decisions based on a group's political perspec-
tive. This semester, MSA allocated more than
$96,000 to about 220 organizations.
Roe explained that all MSA or the University
can do now in regards to the case is speculate on
possible verdicts and discuss strategies to deal
with them. "We're in a wait and see, but ready to
act state of mind," Roe said.
Having students decide which groups they want
to fund troubles some students who think such a
process might stagger the campus's diversity.
"We're going to be hurting badly and probably
disappear with time," said Blanca Arenas,
Wisconsin president of Union Puertorriuena, a
Latino/a student association, expressing concern
that many of the schools students would not fund
Union Puertorriuena if they had a choice.
Student fee alternatives that Wisconsin is consid-
ering include having students individually choose
whether they want to fund student groups at all or
having students decide which student groups they
would like to financially support with their fees.
Southworth camp claiming early

will fund groups who claim an educational benefit to their actions.
The procedures in which funds are allocated to groups through stu-
dent fees are the basis for this case.
The three ways that funds are allocated to student organizations
are through the Associate Students of Madison, the official student
body for the university which appropriates funds to Registered
Student Organizations for general operations, travel and special
events; the General Student Service Fund that gives money to orga-
nizations that provide services to the university community; and reg-
istered student organizations can also seek funding through a student
Lorence cited the Court's 1995 ruling in Rosenberger v. Rector
and the Visitors of the University of Virginia, another example of
the flaws innate to university funding policies.
The decision said that the allocation of student funds must be done on
an equal opportunity basis.
Ron Rosenberger, the UVA student who brought the 1995 case, said
that the two cases are "twin pillars" Rosenberger said his case was about
how money flows out of the pool, while Southworth is about how money
flows into the pool.
There are other ways for student organizations to raise money
Lorence said, using membership dues as an example.
Southworth said after the hearing that he is completely opposed
to the use of a student referendum and, after hearing the justices,
he said that he adamantly believes "the referendum is dead."
But not everyone said they agree that the justices were vehemently
opposed to the referendum. ASM Chair Adam Klaus said there was
insufficient information about the referendum and for the meantime he
said he thinks it will be upheld.
The university's administrators said they believe that student organi-
zations play a vital role in the leaming process.
These groups serve an "educational function, UW systems President
Katharine Niles said. Such an action would cause "less diversity of
viewpoints on campus," she added.
"You can't have free speech unless all voices are heard" Klaus
After several lower court decisions in favor of the suing stu-
dents, the University of Wisconsin Regents appealed to the U.S.
Supreme Court to make a final decision of whether funditt stu-
dent organization infringes on the First Amendment rights of stu-
The Supreme Court decided to hear the case of three former
Wisconsin students last spring after the university petitioned the federal
high court to review the case.
Although it may be months before the justices come to a final deci-
sion, Keith Bannach, one of the three plaintiffs, said the justices "line of
questioning stands on our favor to win."
But Niles said she thinks the court will not make its decision based on
the individual organizations, but will "acknowledge the importance of a
public forum on campus."
If the court does rule in favor of Southworth it will cause "adminis-
trative nightmares,"Niles said, adding that she would then "hope that the
court will give us some guidance.'
Southworth and his supporters have made few suggestions for
policy changes but have not made any groundwork.
