Business Meeting Minutes
Resolution for Domestic Partner Benefits
In December 2013, the Madison Caucus for Gender Equality Steering Committee voted to support the resolution before the Faculty Senate regarding domestic partner benefits. Three quarters of the Madison Caucus membership voted, and three quarters of those who voted approved the resolution. Now that's impressive! Some respondents suggested that the language in the resolution about same-sex domestic partner benefits be revised to read "same sex and domestic partner benefits," and that suggestion will be passed on to our senators. Thank you for your participation in this important vote. View the resolution here.
