This group sounds me like a union to me than a student group
Our Work - United Council of UW Students
United Council‘s decades of grassroots organizing experience and state and national resources bring together over 140,000 UW students to speak and fight as a collective group. Every year, UC organizes students around the state Biennial Budget Campaign to make sure public funding for higher education is a priority in the Wisconsin state budget. UC runs effective and coordinated Get Out The Vote campaigns to register students to vote, educate them on the issues, and elect into office candidates who value public higher education and recognize students as a vital part of their constituency. UC also works on more targeted campaigns involving one piece of legislation to advance student rights in Wisconsin.
United Council employs two registered lobbyists who meet with legislators, UW System administrators and members of the UW System Board of Regents. These UC staff members act as students’ eyes and ears. UC staffers stay up-to-date on proposals made in the state capitol and in Van Hise and they present student concerns and needs directly to key decision makers. UC’s lobbying efforts, as part of larger grassroots campaigns, has helped to win several recent victories for students including freezing tuition for students from families making $60,000 a year or less, freezing tuition for all UW two-year campuses and increasing financial aid. One of the best ways for students to get involved in United Council is through UC events.
