WUD Committees

Directorate 2015-16Wisconsin Union Directorate (WUD) is the student programming board that plans, organizes, and promotes over hundreds of recreational, art, community service, cultural events, and outdoor fun each year on campus.

With nine committees and the Wisconsin Hoofers, WUD is dedicated to offering our fellow Badgers fun and unforgettable experiences, with great opportunities for leadership roles and development. Our events excite and inspire your Wisconsin Experience, and our leaders have the opportunity to make an impactful difference in their communities, while making lifelong friends in the process.

The four WUD Officers (President, Vice Presidents of Internal and External Relations, and Vice President of Development) oversee the nine committee directors and the Hoofer Council President. These 14 positions make up the full Directorate, which reports to Union Council, the governing body of the Wisconsin Union composed of students, Union staff members, alumni, and faculty representatives.
