University of Wisconsin–Madison

Celebrating another Wisconsin homecoming (with video)

Happy homecoming! This is one of my favorite weeks of the year, as the campus is filled with alumni returning to reconnect with old friends and traditions. Riding in the homecoming parade is definitely one of the most fun parts of this job!

I particularly want to extend a very warm welcome to all the members of the Boards of Visitors who are here this week. Your advocacy and advice helps UW-Madison maintain its place as a world-class institution. Video of my remarks to the Boards of Visitor luncheon can be viewed below.

For those who want to know more about how we use the resources we receive, we’ve just released the latest version of our Budget in Brief. The document explains where UW’s revenues come from and how we spend them.  It also shows the university’s economic impact on the entire state of Wisconsin, and highlights the UW System’s request for continued investment in the upcoming 2019-21 state budget.
