The first-ever Wisconsin Idea Conference is in the books.
On Monday, March 27, the Morgridge Center for Public Service brought together community-engaged scholars, staff, students and local leaders to deepen our understanding of our state and local community and reflect upon how we cultivate a culture of community engagement at UW–Madison.
The conference featured speakers from across the community, including faculty and community partners connected to the UniverCity Alliance, community partnerships with the Indigenous Learning Lab, students and staff at the Morgridge Center, and more.

Community-Engaged Scholarship Specialist Cory Sprinkel and Assistant Director of Community-Engaged Scholarship Haley Madden are already looking forward to next year as they hope to host another Wisconsin Idea Conference and bring in more voices and community members to expand upon the Wisconsin Idea.
