See the Press Release page for the results of the elections
Every Spring semester University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire students participate in an election so as to elect a new Senate Administration and a new slate of Student Senators. Elections are held for a President and Vice Presidential ticket and for 30 Student Senators. Those 30 seats are divided proportionally each year to the on and off campus communities. In the 2011-2012 session, there are 11 On-Campus Senator seats and 19 Off-Campus Senator seats. No experience in student government is required to run for office, you simply must currently be a student at UW-Eau Claire enrolled with at least 6 credits and have a 2.0 GPA.
Directors, chairs, commission and committees members, and liaisons are all appointed by the President at his or her discretion. Mid-session appointments for vacant Senator positions are made by the vacancies committee. Please contact us to inquire about any open positions.
Those students wishing to campaign for a position during an election are required to follow strict procedures imposed by the Senate Bylaws. More information is available on the Elections and Campaign Procedures page, including a downloadable copy of the procedures in PDF format.
