Present such facts as are needed to establish the importance of the problem your petition addresses and to indicate its present status: 

Whereas, early in 2014, the Faculty Senate asked the University Writing Committee (UWC) to undertake an initiative with the goal of improving the writing skills of UNI undergraduate students;

and whereas the UWC has addressed this task, in part by studying writing requirements at peer institutions, and, based on its findings, has prepared the attached report and recommendations; 

Clearly indicate the action you wish the Senate to take relative to your petition, beginning with the phrase, "Therefore, be it resolved....": 

Therefore, be it resolved that the Senate receives the report of the University Writing Committe and approves its recommendations.
