UWSP made the decision in 2008 to transition to self-operated dining after many decades of contracted food service. In June 2009, University Dining (UD) was created as a department within the Division of Student Affairs and we have been serving the campus community ever since. UD is self-supporting and receives no funding from the University, State, or Federal resources. UD is managed very much like a commercial restaurant operation. All expenses incurred, including the cost of food, wages and benefits, operating supplies, utilities, repairs and maintenance, and occupancy costs, must be covered by revenue generated across the units on campus.
As a student-focused organization, University Dining seeks to bring diversity to the table by engaging students, the campus, and the community with innovative hospitality.
University Dining enhances the educational experience of individuals by creating sustainable practices and nourishing a diverse community.
University Dining places a strong emphasis on quality, value, student employment, and sustainability. University Dining also supports UWSP’s commitment to fostering a campus focused on equity, diversity, and inclusion.
