ASWSU Senators approved the student technology fee allocation at their Wednesday night meeting. 

Pro Tempore Katie Carstens spoke to the senate about the fee, which is used to help different groups on campus improve their technology. 

Last year, $657,696 was allocated to different groups, Carstens said. 

This money went to groups such as the School of the Environment to expand their Kamiak Butte resources, the College of Arts and Sciences for computer replacements, and the Center for Civic Engagement for Pullman’s portion of GivePulse funding, she said. 

All-campus Senator Daniela Carvajal Macias and Veterinary Medicine Senator Diana Rios are working to create a resources module on Canvas to make them more accessible to students. 

The module is meant to compile a comprehensive list of resources such as Alternatives to Violence of the Palouse, and the two plan to introduce the module to incoming freshmen at the New Coug Orientation, Carvajal Macias said.
