Announcing our 2020-21 Student Officers, Directors

For you, a Wisconsin Union event is an experience for a lifetime; for the students behind our events, it’s an opportunity of a lifetime. 

Behind the scenes are students who plan, promote and implement more than 1,000 events each year. They are part of the Wisconsin Union Directorate, which includes 10 committees and six Wisconsin Hoofers clubs. The committees plan everything from art gallery exhibitions to live music at the Memorial Union Terrace, and the Hoofers clubs help members learn outdoor skills and provide opportunities to enjoy outdoor activities. 

Within these clubs and committees are dozens of student leaders, and guiding them are our officers, committee directors and club presidents. They learn from one another and from Union staff and faculty members, who advise them along their leadership paths.

On April 16, 2019, activist Angela Davis held a meet and greet event as a part of the WUD Distinguished Lecture Series.

On an almost daily basis, we, at the Wisconsin Union receive kind words about our programming. Every time that we do, we think of our incredible students who, for more than 100 years, have helped make what we do possible.

We are honored to share with you our 2020-21 Wisconsin Union officer team for 20-21:

  • Union President Lily Miller
  • Vice President of Internal Relations Kari Fischer
