Sit on a University Committee

Serving on University Committees is a vital and important way in which students impact change on this campus and is where students have the most direct voice in the decision-making process at UWM. The Student Association Senate is charged with making committee appointments and taking in reports from the various committees.

Being appointed to serve on one of the many university committees is perhaps the easiest and quickest way to get involved on campus and affect change for students. Furthermore, there is a committee for almost every imaginable aspect of the campus. If someone is passionate about any issue or topic related to student life, most likely there is a committee for it.

Committee appointments are an ongoing process and there are almost always opportunities to get involved. If you are interested in being appointed to please fill out the application below or stop by the SA Office (EG79).

How Do I Join A Committee?

First, fill out the application! Find it here: 2014-2015 Shared Governance Application

The Student Association Professional Staff office will confirm your eligibility for the committee. Most seats are open to any enrolled student, but certain committees require students enrolled in a particular school.

If everything is in order, your application will be presented to the Student Association President. The SA President reviews each application and makes recommendations for committee appointments to the SA Senate for final confirmation. The SA Senate will then vote to approve or disapprove your appointment to the committee.

If you have questions about the process or committee openings, please contact the Shared Governance Assistant, Brooke Messier at
