UW–Madison Day at the State Capitol

April 23
CANCELED, more info below.

We’ve been monitoring rapidly changing conditions and new information about the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Following recent recommendations from public health officials and guidelines established by UW–Madison leadership, we have decided to cancel all alumni events through April 30, 2020. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this cancellation, and we appreciate your continued support of UW–Madison. Please contact Mike Fahey at michael.fahey@supportuw.org if you have any questions.

Planning to be on the East Coast this spring? UW–Madison Day in Washington, DC, will be Wednesday, April 1, 2020.

Tell Your Story.

As a public university, the UW’s budget and policies are affected by our government. We need you to be part of the UW’s delegation to the Wisconsin State Legislature. Attend UW–Madison Day to meet with your elected officials and their staff members — and tell them why it’s so important to make higher education a priority.

The day will begin with a tour of Engineering Hall where a bus will take us on campus. It will then be followed by “Lobbying 101” presentation and complimentary lunch, during which we’ll teach you everything you need to know to be an effective advocate. Then, meet with elected officials and their staff in the afternoon. The day will close with a reception. But you don’t need to be there the entire day to participate — just let us know when you can attend, and we’ll make sure you’re included.

This is an ideal way to speak to your elected officials about important issues facing the UW. Just wear red and white — and show up ready to tell your story about the importance of higher education.

It’s your turn to influence the decision makers in Madison. Your story matters!

Tours of Engineering Hall 9–11 a.m. Engineering Hall
