International Division Challenge


The Board of Visitors is excited to issue a $5,000 challenge. The first 35 gifts to the International Division during Day of the Badger will help unlock an additional $5,000 gift toward the Global Wisconsin Idea Fund.

This challenge has ended.

The International Division promotes global engagement in each new generation at UW–Madison, leading campus efforts in study abroad, language learning, area studies scholarship, international collaborations, and by welcoming international students, faculty, and staff. At the same time, we develop programs that offer Wisconsin students and educators the chance to explore international issues and prepare them for their role in the global community. 

To successfully engage an increasingly interconnected world, we must be prepared to navigate changing global circumstances and embrace new possibilities. International Division programming ensures that Wisconsin students, teachers, and community members are able to engage as global citizens through programming offered on campus and throughout the state. The Global Wisconsin Idea Fund supports cultural learning and exploration, teacher and library resources, and education on global issues. 

Your support will help bolster programming across the state of Wisconsin. Please make a gift to the Global Wisconsin Idea Fund today!
