United Council works on more targeted campaigns to advance student rights in Wisconsin, these campaigns range far and wide on the issues that effect college students today. All of our campaigns are decided on by our Board of Directors.
The list of all the campaigns United Council is currently running can be found here.
All across the country we are witnessing loss of financial support from higher education. The support for public colleges and universities is decreasing at an alarming rate. United Council believes Wisconsin can be national leaders in reversing this devastating trend. We organize students around the state Biennial Budget Campaign to make sure public funding for higher education is a priority in Wisconsin.
Every election season we campaign to register students to vote, educate them on the issues, and elect candidates who value public higher education, and recognize students as a vital part of their constituency. United Council also works on more targeted campaigns involving one piece of legislation to advance student rights in Wisconsin.
Knowing that you are not alone in the struggle to, not only graduate, but to make the UW Schools a better place is important. This is a space where similar UW campuses come together to discuss and solve common problems. There are three groups, the UW Colleges Caucus, of all the two year campuses, the Research Caucus of UW-Madison and UW-Milwaukee, and the Comprehensive Caucus of all the four year institutions.
United Council is led by a Board of Directors. Board members direct the organization and decide the priorities that United Council works on. Board members and officers are elected at the Spring Convention each year
