Civic Engagement

At UWO, we aim to give our students the knowledge, skills, values and motivation to actively engage in personal, public, and political processes that are individually and socially enriching in order to promote quality of life in our communities. To that end, we encourage voting and dialogue with decision makers. Here we provide information about elected officials and current sustainability policy issues.

Check out the Conservation Scorecard drawn up by the Wisconsin League of Conservation Voters to see how different elected officials voted to support conservation initiatives in over the past year. The John Muir Chapter of the Sierra Club created a Legislative Scorecard as well. Click here to see how their perspective compares and get more info about issues.
