The Wisconsin Union Directorate Global Connections Committee is a fun and engaging organization open to any UW student. We strive to foster awareness of global issues and interests in various cultures and strive to close the understanding gap between people of different cultures and identities through our various programs. WUD Global Connections offers the opportunity to build long-lasting friendships and connections on campus (and beyond!), as we bridge the gap between domestic and international members of our campus community.

The Global Connections Committee is open to all UW-Madison students, both domestic and international. Please join us and bring a friend! 

Committee Meetings are every other Tuesday from 5:30–6:30 on Zoom.  

By participating in Global Connections, you will not only get hands-on experience in event planning, but also have opportunities to network throughout campus. Come to a committee meeting or email us if you would like more information.

All free events sponsored by WUD Global Connections Committee are intended for UW-Madison students, faculty, staff and Union members and guests.
