20th Anniversary Morgridge Center for Public Service

Morgridge Center for Public Service celebrates 20 years in 2016

Posted Jan 04, 2016


The time to shape our future is now.

The Morgridge Center for Public Service is celebrating 20 years at UW-Madison in 2016. The celebration will last the entire calendar year, kicking off with the Campus & Community Summit on Feb. 5.

The Summit will bring together faculty, staff, students, community leaders and national experts to share past and current campus-community collaborations and to look towards the future. The summit will be highlighted with a keynote address from Campus Compact President Andrew Seligsohn.

The event is free and registration is open through mid-January or until space is filled.

Further events throughout the year will continue to be announced as the celebration progresses. More information can be found on the 20th Anniversary website.

The Morgridge Center for Public Service was founded in 1996 thanks the strong support and a generous endowment from UW-Madison alumni John and Tashia Morgridge. Along with the vision of a campus committee formed by then-Chancellor David Ward, the Morgridges laid the foundation for a new focus on public service and civic engagement at UW-Madison.

Today, the Morgridge Center has become a national model for higher education public service and civic engagement, connecting campus and community through service, learning and research.
