Biographical / Historical Note

The UW-Eau Claire Student Senate represents the best interests of the students at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire by authoring and passing legislation to better improve student life and the overall quality of the University.  Some of the first foundations of the organization date back to 1924.  The current Student Senate organization that we know today was formed between 1964 and 1966.   Student Senate offers advice and opinions to the University faculty, University of Wisconsin System administration, Eau Claire City Council, as well as the state and federal governments.

The Student Senate has the annual responsibility of allocating funds from segregated fees to organized activities such as Student Legal Services, UW-EC Athletics, Student Health Services, NOTA, SRI and numerous other deserving organizations. In addition, Student Senate Commissions have limited control over other funds within the Information Technology Budget, Differential Tuition, and the Green Fund. The Information Technology Budget controls laptop rentals, general access labs, wireless internet and much more. Differential Tuition funds faculty-student collaborative research, service learning, first year experience classes as well as other quality programs. Student Senate plans events throughout the year including HOUSE Day; Pack it Up, Pass it On; and others. Student Senate also oversees the approval of all new student organizations on campus and appoints students to university committees.
