NOV. 12, 2004--Two UW-River Falls elementary education majors have been named to the UW- System Student Advisory Council.

Caitlin Callister, of Onalaska, Wis,. and Eli Eschenbauch, of Presque Isle, Wis., will serve as student ambassadors for the 2004-05 year.

UW System chancellors have named more than 30 students to the Student Advisory Council. By taking part in special projects and events, students assist university leaders and offer unique perspectives from a student viewpoint.

Ambassadors provide input, assistance, and feedback on projects and special events, such as the University of Wisconsin Day at the State Fair. Because they are informed about system-wide issues that affect their home campuses, they are an important resource for their peers on university campuses.

UW System Vice President for Public Relations Linda Weimer, says student ambassadors serve their peers, "Ultimately, the UW System exists to serve students," Weimer said. "As the university continues to manage budget cuts, improve quality in our classrooms, increase its visibility to the public, and contribute toward growing Wisconsin's economy, the perspectives of our student ambassadors become even more valuable."

Student ambassadors have hosted UW System events since 2000. They also assist the Board of Regents in sharing the importance of higher education with state and elected leaders, provide counsel to the president and system officers, and work with the student member of the Board of Regents and the United Council of UW Students.
