The ASUW Wiki was created to provide some "institutional memory" amongst imcoming student leaders who are new to the process. Few ASUW-ers, except for the staff advisors, have any more than 4-6 years of experience (it's a university, afterall). This will help us learn the lessons of history, and more fully explain the aspects of ASUW.
Recently we have also worked the wiki into a more general usage wiki for the entire University of Washington student body. Here we provide information about various aspects of campus life, resources to consult, as well as providing a type of online posting board for students, faculty, and staff to use to exchange goods and to post listings describing desired housing and a way for potentail roomates to find eachother.
