Rotaract UW members have access to a formidable worldwide network of leaders in every professional field who can serve as mentors and contribute to our professional development. Our Club provides opportunities that build lasting friendships, but also instill leadership, teamwork, motivation, and practical skills in our members. In the spirit of good citizenship, we will benefit our community and the world through volunteer activities and philanthropic events.
In Madison alone, Rotaract UW members have access to 500 business and community leaders—but also an additional 1.2 million leaders in every U.S. state and nearly every country in the world. Regardless of your major or year in school, no other student organization offers such tremendous networking opportunities. The least important benefit that UW Rotaract has is adding 3-4 lines to your resume. The most important benefit is building relationships that will make a positive difference in your life.
The UW Rotaract Chapter provides formidable networking and professional development opportunities to our members while making a positive difference in the community and the world.
