Offices closed, here’s how to reach us

These are unprecedented times we are living in today. As a precaution, and in keeping with federal and state mandates to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus, all WIPPS staff have begun telecommuting as of Monday, March 16.

You have seen our recent messages announcing the postponement and or rescheduling of our spring events. As of today, the only event that is confirmed with a new date is the John Bolton talk – now set for June 9 at the UW Center for Civic Engagement in Wausau. The 10th Veninga Lecture on Religion and Society will feature Jim Veninga’s daughter, Jenny Veninga. While a specific date has not been finalized, it will take place in late September or early October.

Watch for e-blast alerts and messages on WIPPS’ Facebook page to learn about dates for the Veninga Lecture, Toward One Wisconsin Inclusivity Conference and Part III of our Immigration Series.

Here are the best ways to reach out to WIPPS with any questions you may have:

  • Email: (Monitored by staff with prompt response.)
  • Phone: 715-261-6368 (You will get our voice-mail system which is being monitored daily.)

We are all in this together, and we are thankful for the support of all of you as WIPPS continues to work on event programming in the coming months.
