Synod Campus Ministries at UW-Madison, UW-Platteville, UW-Whitewater

Campus ministry invites people in academic settings to fellowship, worship & bible study. It provides a safe place to build leadership skills as well as discover and fulfill their vocation as disciples.

A trip to a cathedral, synagogue and mosque invited students to more fully understand their neighbors. Christian, Jewish and Muslim students all traveled together to learn about each other and their different faiths.

LCM at UW Whitewater is a joint ministry between the ELCA and the Episcopal Church USA

UW-Platteville

No stereotypical beaches and beverages for students from UW-Platteville.
Their spring break service trips have them working in shelters, aiding persons
with HIV, preparing and serving meals. In a nutshell, being Christ in the world.
