The Wisconsin Alumni Association® is dedicated to creating a welcoming, inclusive environment for all UW alumni, as well as their family and friends. Upholding our values means recognizing that, at times, our efforts to engage diverse alumni have fallen short. To address these shortcomings, our leadership has made outreach and engagement of diverse alumni a top organizational priority.

Our initial plan to improve the alumni experience consists of three key phases. Phase one will focus on alumni of color, phase two will focus on LGBTQ+ alumni, and phase three will be identified after gathering further information on the needs of alumni. This will be an ongoing initiative.
