Who We Are

WUCT was formed in the fall of 2015. The team originally consisted of a group of 20-25 students, but has since then expanded to over 70 undergraduates in six committees: Budget and Fundraising, Community Outreach, Logistics, Public Relations, Question Writing, and Website & App Development.

Our Student Organization Faculty Advisor is Dr. Megan Daschbach.
