Welcome to The Wisconsin Alumni Association: Motor City Badgers Chapter! We're the only UW-Madison chapter in Michigan and are happy to gather Badgers and friends from Southeast Michigan and around the state. We're an inclusive community, united in Badger spirit and the desire to advance UW's positive impact on the world. Badgers are innovative leaders in their fields and are winners at play. Their enthusiasm is contagious. Come along!
