The working Class Student Union seeks to give voice to working class students on our campus, while creating a safe space for us to come together and talk about our experiences. Through creating a network of support, we also will be advocating for ourselves as students on the UW campus and members of the Madison community. We feel that as working class students, we share a unique identity that has traditionally been silenced. We are actively working to break that silence and the stigma it has created, so that we can advocate for ourselves and the issues that are deeply impacting us, such as tuition increases and lack of representation in our curriculum.
Our workshops are created and facilitated by an officer of the Working Class Student Union and can be
tailored to fit within your timeframe and to address any specific questions or concerns your group may
