Lend your voice

For generations, Wisconsin has valued a high-quality education that is accessible to its citizens.  It is known as the Wisconsin Idea. Education in Wisconsin should be the result of a true partnership between the state and the university system. It is only by working together that the state and the economy will thrive.
