Get Involved

Badgers are helpful creatures. UW–Madison Badgers are, at least. How else can you explain alumni volunteering and advocating for the UW, and serving as WAA chapter and group leaders each year? And there are many ways for you to get involved — from helping students and campus to the alumni community. No matter your interests, experience, or location, all Badgers can serve the greater good.

Ways to Serve Campus and the Badger Community

Alumni Outreach

Get involved in your local chapter or participate in an affinity group that interests you to lend a hand to fellow alumni and students and even take on important leadership roles. Join Badger Bridge to mentor fellow Badgers by offering your personal experiences and connections. You can make a big difference to new and recent grads.

UW–Madison Advocacy

Alumni voices are crucial to ensuring continued support for UW–Madison. Work alongside WAA to amplify your voice and create a public dialogue about the importance of higher education in Wisconsin.

Giving Back

The generosity of alumni and friends helps to fuel ongoing university excellence and alumni efforts. Choose how you want to make your mark on the future of the UW and its extended community.

Student Support

Consider reaching out to the UW’s Office of Admissions and Recruitment about sharing your Wisconsin experience with prospective students. If your organization is hiring, look into bringing a UW graduate or student intern on board by sharing your company’s opportunities through Successworks and Handshake . Even if you’re not hiring, please tell your network or HR department about these valuable tools.

Volunteer Confidentiality and Conflict of Interest Agreement

The success of the Wisconsin Alumni Association depends on a network of volunteers serving in a variety of roles. WAA values its volunteers and works to create programs and services to support and enhance their involvement. This agreement has been established to help WAA fulfill its mission to support the vision and goals of the University of Wisconsin–Madison. This policy applies to members of the national board of directors, alumni volunteers, affiliate leaders, and any other volunteers in WAA’s governance structure or chapter leadership.
