    Welcome to Specific Issues

     SI Co Chairs


    Specific Issues or SI, is a sub-committee of RHAC that focuses on two major areas, Issues and Education. SI is devoted to researching ways to improve life on campus by taking suggestions from residents, as well as touring other campuses around the Midwest and bringing back new ideas to UW-L. Additionally, you can find a Specific Issues box at each hall's front desk if you have an on-campus problem that you would like to bring to our attention!

    SI's education portion hopes to shed light on upcoming issues throughout Residence Life. This year, SI has been focusing on inclusive language and sustainability. In addition, this portion setups up all-campus programs that promote education and inclusive excellence. 

    Overall, SI aims to make living on campus more comfortable for everyone!
