The UWLSA is comprised of the Student Senate, which serves as the legislative body, along with the Executive Branch and Judicial Branch. Together these bodies represent the UW-L student body on the campus, state, and federal levels. UWLSA representatives work closely with the University of Wisconsin System to serve the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse.

The UWLSA exists to serve the students of UW-L. The student body is always encouraged to contact the senator who represents their respective school on campus with any issues, concerns, or questions. Students can locate their senator, along with contact information, on the Student Senate membership page.
