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.

- 11th Annual UW-Madison Outstanding Women of Color Reception, March 5 | 5–7 p.m.
- Badger Café: “Global Black Literatures Experts Join the UW”, March 26 | 6–8 p.m.
- National Diversity Council Women in Leadership Symposium, March 27 | 8 a.m.–12 p.m.
- DDEEA Graduation Recognition and Reception, May 10 | 5–9 p.m.
Read how we’re planning to better serve all alumni — and improve the student experience for current Badgers as well.
