What Can I Run For?
Freshmen Senator (5 seats available)
The Fall elections are reserved exclusively for Freshmen Senators. Each year, the Student Association senate reserves 5 seats for first-year students to be elected in October. These freshmen senators will serve through April to represent the needs and interests of the Class of 2021. As a freshman senator, you would be required to attend senate meetings currently held at 5pm every other Sunday, and commit around 5 hours a week to working on projects and activities that enrich the student experience at UWM.

Other Open Seats
For Non-Freshman: There are also several open seats on the senate: Students w/Disabilities Advocacy Senator, School of Education Senator, Peck School of the Arts Senator, Nursing Senator, and the Architecture Senator. These positions are filled by a vote through the senate (not the student body).
