The Morgridge Center for Public Service is committed to ensuring students are aware of multiple pathways to public service. These can include activities around philanthropy, direct service, advocacy, and social entrepreneurship. For some, the most basic form of civic engagement is voting. The Morgridge Center supports learning around voter engagement and education at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. The Center has collaborated with several local and national initiatives to further this effort. See links below for more information on these initiatives:
ALL IN Democracy Challenge
Big 10 Voting Challenge
National Study of Learning, Voting, and Engagement
Vote Everywhere Ambassador at UW-Madison
