Advancing the Brand

The University of Wisconsin–Madison is a remarkable place: a world-class public research university filled with talent, knowledge, energy and excitement — all of which can be leveraged into a positive impact on the lives of others throughout Wisconsin and the world. The Wisconsin Idea is as alive now as it has ever been.

The Office of University Relations works hard to tell this story through innovative and comprehensive communications with our many internal and external audiences; by building and nurturing relationships with local and statewide communities, business and industry; and by fostering partnerships and relationships throughout the state and the world.
