Sabbatical Officers 

At the top of UWLSU, sit our Sabbatical Officers, who work to make changes and build an SU that represents our diverse body of students and gives them the best opportunities. Every year, every student at UWL has the chance to vote for who they want to represent them – you also have the chance to run, if it’s something you’re interested in! 

The Positions 

There are 3 Sabbatical Officers: President, VP of Education, and VP of Activities. They all have different responsibilities that pull together to represent the students’ collective interest. A Sabbatical Officer is a full-time, paid role that exists to enhance UWL students’ experience.  

Make sure you vote for your officers, read their manifestos to pick the right person to represent you!
