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 you are passionate about any issue or topic related to student life, most likely there is a committee for it.

**Presence is our new platform that replaced Engage. It works best on Chrome, if it isn’t working, please email to receive assistance**


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 or concerns please contact Lake Beddome the GA – Records Manager for the Student Association Professional Staff office at or stop by WG10.
