From: Todd Feathers

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Wisconsin Open Records Act, I hereby request the following records:

1) An up-to-date report from the university's Education Advisory Board (EAB) system documenting undergraduate students' predicted risk scores, broken down in aggregate by the following categories:
- Race
- Gender
- Major
- GPA Group
- Race AND Gender
- Race AND Major
- Race AND Gender AND Major
- Race AND GPA group
- Race AND Gender AND GPA group

This data is stored in the university's EAB system as part of the Student Success Collaborative tool and can easily be searched and compiled into reports, as demonstrated by the attached example document provided by the University of Houston in response to a similar public records request for data from its EAB system. Please note that I am not requesting any personally identifying information, but rather aggregate data for the aforementioned groups.

I ask that all fees be waived as I am a journalist and I intend to use the requested records to publish articles in the public interest and not for any commercial purpose

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter.

I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 10 business days.

Sincerely,

Todd Feathers

From: University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee

Hi Todd --

Todd,

The Office of Public Records received your request.

On November 30, you requested the same set of records broken down by the following categories:

- Race
- Gender
- Race AND gender
- Major
- GPA group

I’m assuming that this current request supersedes your 11/30 request because you are asking for the above-referenced categories as well as additional categories. Your request today will be processed as soon as practicable and without delay.

Sincerely,

Kathryn Amato
