The Wisconsin University Union (WUU) is an independent association of faculty and academic staff at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Our purpose is to promote the values of our members in the operation of this institution. WUU’s core values reflect a commitment to democracy—an order of free and equal persons who determine the conditions of their own association.
