Our Mission Statement

The University of Winnipeg Students’ Association democratically unites the students of the University of Winnipeg in order to advance student interests. Our efforts include promoting the exchange of ideas and information among students, and within the greater University community. In aid of this, we support and encourage the development of student groups and societies on campus. As well as promoting communication within the University, the UWSA advocates on behalf of students to administrative bodies.

Beyond the campus, the UWSA communicates with, and advocates on behalf of students to all levels of administration and government. By working together with other students across Canada, through membership in the Canadian Federation of Students, members of the UWSA have an effective voice at the provincial and federal level. The UWSA is committed to working at all levels toward a post-secondary education system that is accessible and of the highest possible quality. In all its activities, the UWSA is committed to providing leadership in environmentally-responsible, ethical, and progressive ways.
