More about WUD

Wisconsin Union Directorate (WUD) is student-run. We empower our peers to make decisions, giving them the authority to plan the events they know our campus will appreciate.

Lead your Union: 

WUD Officers and Directors ensure that there are always fun and engaging experiences for campus. These leaders are responsible for organizing committees that plan and promote a diverse array of events and opportunities to enrich the campus and greater Madison community. Applications for 2021-22 are now open!

Applications Open Each October

Every member of a WUD committee has a say in programming; from voting on which bands and speakers to bring to campus to suggesting and executing events, you can develop your leadership skills and make an impact! Each committee has Associate Directors to help guide the group's programming, along with a Director who oversees the overall vision and execution of events.

There are three Officers (President, Vice President of External Relations, Vice President of Internal Relations) that oversee 11 WUD Committee Directors and the Hoofer Council President.

The Directors and the Hoofer Council President lead a team of Associate Directors and Coordinators and report to the Officers, and Officers report to the greater Wisconsin Union. These 14 student positions make up Directorate, a subcommittee of Union Council. As the governing body of the Wisconsin Union, Union Council is composed of a student majority, along with Union staff members, alumni, and faculty representatives.
