Wisconsin 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 10 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 three WUD Officers (President and Vice Presidents of Internal and External Relations) oversee the 10 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.
