The Community is Your Classroom

The Wisconsin Idea declares that the education, research and expertise of the university should benefit communities beyond the campus borders. Teach a community-based learning course and integrate service into your curriculum. Or engage in community-based research through the Community University Exchange. Discover funding, resources and events to bridge the campus classroom and laboratory into the community.

We believe faculty and staff can play in crucial role in communities beyond campus by forming reciprocally beneficial partnerships. We also believe the UW-Madison community has much to gain and learn from those partnerships.
