The Wisconsin Experience is for everyone.
UW–Madison wouldn’t be the world-class institution we love without the full range of cultural, social, and personal identities that our students, staff, and alumni bring. Celebrate the diversity that makes the UW such a vibrant place — and help us ensure that every Badger feels included and valued.
- Badger Pride Brunch Panel, Saturday, Aug. 15
- OutReach Pride Magic Festival, Sunday, Aug. 16 – We are a community sponsor for this event.
- Multicultural Affinity Celebration (event page will be live within the next week), Friday, Aug. 21
- UW–Madison Diversity Forum, Tuesday, Oct. 27 – Wednesday, Oct. 28th – Sponsored by the Division of Diversity, Equity, and Educational Achievement
