Importance of Student Organizations

Student Organizations contribute significantly to the students’ total educational development and progress. University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee considers student organization activities and programs an integral part of the University’s mission.

Student activities provide experiences which stimulate interest and understanding of current social, economic, political, cultural or religious problems and issues. At the same time, they provide rewarding experiences that come from living and working in group projects with individuals of varying races, life-styles, creeds, and cultural backgrounds. 

In addition, student activities provide students with stimulation for intellectual growth, leadership development, democratic processes, and citizenship responsibilities.
