UWSA – University of Windsor Students' Alliance

Stop! This is where things can get technical, legal and even a little serious. There are a number of documents that describe how the UWSA works. Grab a cup of coffee and get ready for a good read.

Policies are the regulations that outline the day-to-day business of the UWSA. They are regularly reviewed by the Board and periodically changed to adapt to our ever changing culture. Think of this as the “how” to the UWSA.


Still don’t understand the difference? Tip: By-Laws tell us “what” to do. Policies tell us “how” to do it.
