Our latest notes and comments from the Government Relations Director, as they visit the legislators offices. This blog brings you the up to the moment on information on how the state legislators are affecting students, and how United Council is making sure students are heard and respected in the Capitol Building.
The Board of Directors is the executive authority of United Council. The Board is comprised of four representatives from the UW Colleges, comprehensive institutions, and research institutions, the president, vice president, secretary, alumni board chair, and executive director.
These United Council Staff Members are full time staff members that are located on campuses 100% of the time. United Council believes it is vital to have field organizers on the ground, and working with students because it is the most effective way to organize students. This program creates the strength necessary to make the meaningful impacts on campus, state, and national issues that affect students today.
These centrally located staffers are in the United Council office near the Wisconsin Capitol, and are specialized in specific areas, such as, government relations, communications, inclusivity, development, and management of the organization. These staffers maintain and give trainings, workshops, connect with coalition partners, and lobby for access and affordability in the University of Wisconsin System.
