We have welcoming, clean and accessible spaces that many in the community feel ownership and pride for. Spaces where the community can make it what they want it to be while feeling like they are a part of something bigger. Spaces that effectively mix art and design to capture the Wisconsin experience.
Engaging Events & Services
We provide an environment where there is always something going on, where every day is an event. We offer places to have new experiences and experiment safely with new ideas. We do this with good customer service.
Trust in Students
We offer UW Madison students a wide variety of learning experiences, paid and unpaid, that allow them to develop transferable skills. Students as the agents of doing at the Union, with the autonomy and ownership, create a relevancy and vibrancy that demonstrates respect for their perspectives, interests and skill development.
The Union, and its greater purpose, is accepted and loved by the larger community. The Union is perceived as a builder of community and active participant in creating a positive campus climate.
Committed & Knowledgeable Staff
Union staff are committed, knowledgeable and capable to meet both the daily and extraordinary challenges of being UW-Madison’s social center. Staff are dedicated to the success of the organization and service to the community. A can- do attitude combined with resourcefulness and creativity create a positive environment for both meeting the mission and providing for a fun, team-oriented workspace.
