Every year, students join Wisconsin Union Directorate (WUD) to plan, program, and promote hundreds of recreational, art, community service, and cultural events that take place in Memorial Union, Union South, around campus, and around the wold.
WUD provides many opportunities for students to take on leadership roles and development, and it's a great place to make new friends.
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.
