Morgridge Center 20th Anniversary

20th Anniversary Morgridge Center for Public Service


The time to shape our future is now.

In 2016, the Morgridge Center for Public Service is celebrating 20 years at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. We'll be celebrating all year long, honoring our past two decades while also igniting a spark for the next 20 years ahead. 

We have a series of events planned for both campus and community in 2016, in addition to year-long campaigns aimed at getting students to reflect on and engage with their civic responsibility and opportunity.



UW-Madison alumni John and Tashia Morgridge established the Morgridge Center in 1996 with a generous endowment. Through the passion and dedication of thousands of faculty, staff, students, community partners and donors in the two decades since, the Morgridge Center has become a national model for university public service and civic engagement.
