Student Governance

Student Association (SA)

The mission of Student Association is to bring positive impact to student life.  Over the years, SA has engaged in several sustainability programs and projects.  Mostly recently, SA put a concerted effort forward to expand alternative transportation options for students and bring the Bublr Bikeshare to the UWM campus.

Transportation Committee

A new transportation committee was formulated under SA in order to build understanding around the variety of student transportation needs, the impacts on student segregated fees, and to explore options around all forms of transportation.

Environmental Sustainability Committee

The Environmental Sustainability Committee (ESC) was established under the Student Association in 2007. The primary makeup of the committee are students, but there is also widespread representation from across campus of faculty and staff, including the Chief Sustainability Officer of UW-Milwaukee.  ESC is also an assembly of representation from several student organizations that address environmental concerns on and off campus.

Contact SA to get involved.

Student Housing Administrative Council (SHAC)

By supporting students in on-campus housing, SHAC has engaged in several sustainable living programs, such as RecycleMania and energy competitions.

ECO Reps

ECO Rep students in University Housing engage in peer to peer environmental and sustainability education.  Students are active with the Housing improvements committee to build sustainability into Housing operations.
