FAQ

Study abroad candidates

Experience

Applicants do not need to have previous involvement in the Wisconsin Union or any WUD committee. While knowledge of our committees and events is a plus, we are seeking any individuals who demonstrate leadership abilities, have relevant background pertinent to the role(s) applied for, and will uphold a commitment to fostering the growth of our committees. 

Time commitment

WUD leaders should expect to dedicate a significant amount of time to their position in order to successfully fulfill their responsibilities and best lead their committee. Current WUD leaders boast excellent time management skills and many are involved in multiple student organizations and/or have an on-campus job outside of their role in WUD. Remember to double check the list of mandatory dates before applying.

Qualifications

Each position is a little different, requiring unique skills, interests or knowledge to be best prepared for the role. The ideal candidates will be well-prepared to complete the duties listed on the position description of their desired role, though no specific qualifications are required. Any and all UW-Madison students and welcome and encouraged to apply.
