How to Get Involved

Thank You For Your Interest In WUD!

  • 2016-17 Directorate Slider Image

The easiest way to get involved is to attend an event or join a committee.

Our events:

WUD programs a plethora of events each month; concerts and performances, lectures, discussions and demonstrations, art gallery shows, films + more!  Check out our event calendar here. The majority of our events are free to any UW-Madison student (if there's a cost associated with any program, the event page will tell you). We welcome all perspectives and identities, so please join us! You can also let us know what events we should plan next and how you want to hear about our programming by taking this brief survey!

Joining a committee:

All UW-Madison students are welcome to become members of any committee at any time — and there's no fee to join WUD. Feel free to stop by a committee's meeting or approach a current member at one of their events. Throughout the year, individual committees may also announce leadership positions. You can find contact information and meeting dates on each committee's page.  

WUD is also an awesome opportunity to gain leadership experience.

Make decisions about your Union: 

Share your perspectives and help make decisions about your Union by joining a Union Council Subcommittee. There are five subcommittees that oversee various operational units in the Union and all UW-Madison students, staff and faculty members, and alumni are welcome to attend any subcommittee's meetings.
