Back to Where It All Started
UW alumnus, Milwaukee native, and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Steve Miller x’67 is coming back to the campus where his music career began. After leaving the UW in the late 1960s, he joined the San Francisco music scene and crafted his own brand of pop music. The Steve Miller Band’s hits include “Take the Money and Run,” “Fly Like an Eagle,” “Jet Airliner,” and “The Joker.” It will be a night of big hits and good times.

A Great Cause: Student Scholarships
UW Alumni Phill Gross ’82, MS’83 and Ted Kellner ’69 made this event possible in order to raise funds for the Chancellor’s Scholarship Program at UW–Madison. Proceeds from the ticket sales and additional donations will benefit this important scholarship program which was established in 1984 to increase educational opportunities for academically talented undergraduates from underrepresented or disadvantaged populations.
Celebrating Wisconsin School of Business “No Name”
The concert is also part of a weekend celebration of the 10-year anniversary of the naming of the Wisconsin School of Business. In 2007, the Wisconsin School of Business received a naming gift that came with no name. Innovative in the world of philanthropy, it was the gift of not a single donor, but of a group of 13 like-minded UW alumni. They joined together to create the Wisconsin Naming Partnership with an investment of $85 million to preserve the school’s name for at least 20 years. Since the original gift, four others have joined the partnership, raising the total gift amount to $110 million.
