All Campus Day of Service UW-Madison


All-Campus Day of Service

Wednesday, April 26th, 2017

The second annual All-Campus Day of Service will be put on by the Morgridge Center for Public Service in conjunction with Wisconsin Alumni Student Board (WASB) and All Campus Party (ACP).

For one day, students won't be able to walk anywhere on campus without discovering opportunities to learn, reflect and engage with public service - broadly defined to include direct volunteering projects, community involvement, community discourse and discussion, philanthropy and political involvement.
