RESOLUTION PASSED
=================

WHEREAS, The University of Alaska is dedicated to promoting an 
	environment of non-discrimination and fairness in which all 
	employees, staff and students are treated equally; and

WHEREAS, The establishment of domestic partnership benefits 
	programs has been used by top institutions and companies 
	around the country to attract and retain highly qualified 
	employees (over 450 companies and 100 institutions of higher 
	education, both public and private, including Princeton, 
	Harvard, the University of South Carolina, the University of 
	South Dakota, Stanford, and the University of Iowa, offer 
	similar domestic partnership programs); and 

WHEREAS, The University of Alaska, last September instituted a 
	Domestic Partnership benefits program that has not resulted 
	in economic or administrative impacts; and

WHEREAS, The cost of continuing the domestic partnership program 
	already in place is less than 0.05% of all the benefits costs 
	incurred by the University per year ($88,000 out of $18 
	million) and has increased the number of people insured by less 
	than 1%; and

WHEREAS, The current and continuing advantages of the domestic 
	partnership benefits program are the creation of a fairer and 
	less discriminatory workplace environment, and improved 
	morale among faculty and staff who feel more fairly treated 
	and valued; 

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, That the Faculty Senate of the 
	University of Alaska Fairbanks requests that the Board of 
	Regents leave the existing domestic partnership benefits 
	program in place and take no action to remove or reduce 
	benefits provided to bona fide domestic partners, spouses and 
	legal dependents of UA employees.
