University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee

Ways to get Involved

When issues affecting UWM come before the state Legislature, you will be sent an e-mail asking you to contact your elected officials, asking them or other government bodies to consider the University’s position on an issue. You’ll also be provided with talking points that can be used in a discussion with your elected officials.

Advocacy can mean more than communicating with elected officials. At times, a letter to the editor of your local newspaper, speaking before civic groups or contacting your media sources in support of UWM can be very effective.

Participation in Panther Advocates is completely voluntary. Your level of involvement is up to you. You can devote as little or as much time as you want. Please remember that every little bit helps!

Guidelines for writing Letters to the Editor
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel "Letters to the Editor" should be kept to fewer than 200 words and should contain your name, address, and daytime phone number (for verification purposes). If you would like us to review your letter before you send it to the newspaper, please e-mail it to us or call us. We'd be glad to help.

Letters should be mailed to:

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel P.O. Box 371 Milwaukee, WI 53201-0371
