Intergovernmental Affairs

Representing students

The Intergovernmental Affairs commission works with members of other legislative bodies of the UW system, the city of Eau Claire, and the state of Wisconsin to represent the UW-Eau Claire student body. It may take positions on national, state, and local laws that affect students at UW-Eau Claire, and advocate on behalf of students to advance the quality of their place in the community.

The commission continuously informs and educates students about the electoral and legislative processes that affect them, and facilitate voter registration and "Get Out the Vote" efforts. Members of IGA regularly attend neighborhood association and Eau Claire City Council meetings.

This commission monitors the city, county, and state legislatures, and seeks to build relationships with elected representatives to create positive change. Through constant engagement and grass roots organization, IGA seeks to strengthen the power or students.
