University of Wisconsin Madison students demanded more funding for diversity initiatives at an open forum Monday night, even though the administration has already succumbed to many of their previous demands.

One student at the forum, according to the Wisconsin State Journal, suggested that the university raise ticket prices for athletic events in order to help fund opportunities for disadvantaged students.

The forum was called after hundreds of UW students staged a walkout last week to protest the recent arrest of a classmate who allegedly vandalized several on-campus buildings, costing the university $4,000 in repair, and was billed as an opportunity for the administration to address their concerns.
