Civic Engagement

At UWO, we aim to give our students the knowledge, skills, values and motivation to actively engage in individual and collective behavior and action through personal, community and larger political processes that are enriching and contribute to quality of life in our communities. To that end, we encourage that students take an active and well-informed role in being responsible citizens through voting and dialogue with decision makers. Here we provide information about elected officials, offices and policy issues that relate to sustainability.
