UC Annual Legislative Action Conference at UW-Madison

Governor Walker is at it again.

Stripping the UW System funding is stripping hope from Wisconsin citizens. We won't stand for it. 

As WI citizens, students and future students of the UW System, we have chosen to focus on this four categories:
-Tuition Freeze with more State Funding and funding for k-12
-Protecting Chapter 36
-Present progressive and effective anti-sexual assault legislation
-Reforming the Justice System: ending police brutality, diverting 8m of county jail money to the community, not allowing the system to charge 12-17 as adults


Come to the Legislative Action Conference to learn how to protect our right to education and restore justice for all in community with UW System, Legislators. 

This conference is a five day conference with both training and action components (feel free to come and go as you need in these five days).

If you need housing there is a hotel room block $55/per night at American Best Value Inn
3438 Highway 12-18
Madison, WI 53718

UW-Whitewater: Biennial Budget Campaign Planning

UW-Whitewater: Biennial Budget Campaign Planning

  • University of Wisconsin at Whitewater

In January, the Wisconsin State Governor will present his or her budget for the State. United Council of UW Students takes particular interest in the budget because it impacts many of our platforms including: access to higher education in WI, quality of higher education in WI, ending the school to prison pipeline, etc. It is the  biennial budget that dictates how much money the state will give to the UW System Schools. In recent years, the cuts in budget to the UW System has shifted the focus of the UW System to find money by hiking tuition or research/private money, all of which have negative effects on UW student's access and quality of education.

This SWAG will be focused on what we as UW Students would like to see in the budget to make sure that we and our interests are included. For example, from past SWAGs and interactions with students, we have added specific asks like more financial support for international students to realize a higher quality of education that is specific to their needs and desires.

If you need housing, United Council has reserved a block of hotel rooms for $70 a night at Hampton Inn, 40 West Hidden Trail, Elkhorn, WI 53121. Just call 262.743.2360 and ask to reserve a room under the United Council block in your name.

Like always, although the biennial budget is the focus of this SWAG, like always we invite all ideas and projects that students have to work on as a group. 

Here is the agenda
