About Us

The Wisconsin Alumni Association: Chicago Chapter's purpose is to build an inclusive local community of UW alumni and supporters united by Badger pride, spirit, and the desire to advance UW–Madison's positive impact on the world.

Founded in 1902, the WAA: Chicago Chapter provides exciting opportunities for Badgers in the Chicagoland area to connect through a broad range of social, volunteering, and networking events. With 26,000+ alumni across the area, the Chicago chapter is the largest contingent of UW alumni outside of Wisconsin. Our chapter provides four-year scholarship opportunities to local high school students attending UW–Madison.
