About

Badgers United was formed by Wisconsin residents who recognize the University of Wisconsin – Madison’s great impact on our state, and the challenges it must overcome to continue delivering powerful results. We aren’t lobbyists or activists. We’re members of communities like yours who believe a better Wisconsin starts with a stronger UW-Madison.

We’re proud of what the University has done for Wisconsin residents, but we believe it’s time to turn our attention toward future progress.
