Subcommittees

The Wisconsin Union has five subcommittees under Union Council that meet to discuss different issues and concerns within their respective departments of Memorial Union and Union South. Comprised of students, staff, and trustees, the subcommittees are charged to monitor specific areas, study problems in-depth, report the findings, and recommend appropriate action to Union Council. WUD officers chair these subcommittees and committee directors are involved in various ones. All UW-Madison students are encouraged to sit in on these open monthly meetings. If you would like more information on becoming involved in our subcommittees, please contact directorate@union.wisc.edu.
