We heard you. Following a series of listening sessions, we at the Wisconsin Foundation and Alumni Association have developed a strategic plan to build an inclusive, intentional, and sustainable engagement experience for alumni of color. As part of this plan — and to better feature the voices of our alumni of color — we’ve created Badger Vibes, a monthly e-newsletter. We invite you to explore our content below.
