What Is Wisconsin Union Directorate?

Wisconsin Union Directorate (WUD) is the student programming and leadership board for the Wisconsin Union. We're the students who organize, promote and execute some of the best experiences and events you can get outside the classroom.

What Do We Do?

From curating art galleries to community service, hosting cultural events and offering opportunities for outdoor recreation, we work hard to make the Union your home away from home.

Application Information

The WUD Alternative Breaks Trip Scholarship program seeks to enable all students, regardless of their financial situation, to participate in the WUD Alternative Breaks trips.  Designed to complement classroom learning with hands-on experience, the program educates students through volunteer work.  Whether by helping migrant farm worker children in their school work or preparing meals in a homeless center, students gain a deeper understanding of the important and pressing issues affecting American communities.   The scholarship program is generously supported through the Charles F. Meissner Alternative Breaks Fund.
