Wisconsin Union Directorate Society and Politics is a non-partisan group of students that make it easy for people to talk, listen, and learn about the current events and challenges facing society. Committee members program all types of events on campus covering a wide range of topics. We also have weekly engaged, respectful discussions on current topics from 8-9pm during the academic year (skipping breaks) in the Memorial Union. Bringing together diverse students, faculty, staff, members and guests with a rich range of values and ideas allows us to get to know and understand one another. Throughout the process, students learn about themselves and the world around us while also building long-lasting friendships. Stay updated with current topics by liking our Facebook page, WUD Society & Politics.
