Community Partners

WINRS is a partnership between the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Nursing and two Madison community centers, the Goodman Community Center and the Lussier Community Education Center. Both centers have been serving community members for over 30 years by identifying and responding to individual and community needs; promoting recreational, cultural, and educational events; and coordinating programs and services that reflect the diversity of their communities.

"The WINRS team are the perfect ambassadors between the worlds of research and the grassroots community. They create spaces and processes where people can really communicate across barriers that often divide us."

Paul Terranova, Former Executive Director of the Lussier Community Education Center
