Students will have a chance to meet with passionate and eager representatives face-to-face, connect interpersonally and explore ways to get involved.
In addition to the fair, the International Internship Program will be holding a special concurrent workshop: “Teaching English Abroad Info Session” from 4 to 5 p.m.
Organizations attending the Public Service Fair include: AmeriCorps, Community Living Connections, League of Women Voters Dane County, Madison Senior Center, Make-A-Wish Wisconsin, Special Olympics Wisconsin, Inc., La Follette School of Public Affairs and Wisconsin Public Television. Representatives from state and federal government agencies will also be present.
The Public Service Fair is sponsored by the Morgridge Center for Public Service which promotes civic engagement and building collaborative partnerships through public service, and SuccessWorks at the College of Letters & Science which helps students in the College of Letters & Science discover themselves, find opportunities and develop the skills they need for success after graduation.
