Building Community, Strengthening Democracy
Founded in 2007, the Wisconsin Institute for Public Policy and Service (WIPPS) is a unit of the University of Wisconsin System. Our mission is to address local, state, and national issues by linking public scholarship, civic outreach, and student service to enhance community life throughout Wisconsin.
What We Do
Civic participation over a lifetime, working in neighborhoods and communities and service of all kinds – military and civilian, full-time and part-time, national and international – will strengthen America’s civic purpose.
