Join Us for a public symposium:

Relations between Community & Police

Relations between Community and Police is a symposium sponsored by the Wisconsin University Union (WUU). As WUU stands for equity in the work place and our work place is a public university, the issue of Community-Police relations impacts us all. Locally and nationally there have been serious questions raised around Community-Police relations in past years. In this symposium our speakers directly address those questions, as well as proposed solutions to improve community-police relations

Budget Cuts Affect UW System’s Functioning

When budget cuts are imposed on public universities, everyone suffers. Students, faculty, and staff are directly and indirectly impacted in countless ways: more courses for each faculty member to instruct each semester, increased class sizes, lack of access to required courses which may delay graduation, and layoffs are among the tangible impacts of cuts to the UW system.
