Morgridge Center for Public Service 2020-21 Annual Report

The Morgridge Center for Public Service released its 2020-21 annual report highlighting the center’s activities over the past year. The report details how the Morgridge Center lives out its mission of building a thriving democratic society by connecting campus with community through service, community-based learning and research.

Highlights from this year include: prioritizing community and the safety of all during the COVID-19 pandemic, navigating national and local elections during a global pandemic, Community-based Learning development grants and some highlights of our accomplishments towards the Civic Action Plan.

The Morgridge Center also said goodbye to long-time professional staff, Beth Tryon:

  • Tryon retired from full-time work after 11.5 years with the Morgridge Center. Tryon’s contributions to professional development, teaching, scholarship on-campus, in Madison, across the state, nationally and globally has modeled the way for so many of us when it comes to the importance of centering community voice and relationships built on reciprocity.

The annual report also details updates related to the center’s flagship Badger Volunteers program, Wisconsin Idea Fellowships, Community-based Learning courses and communications and marketing.
