Asian Pacific Islander Desi American (APIDA) Affinity Group

A Wisconsin Alumni Association Group

Our purpose is to build an inclusive local community of UW alumni and supporters united by Badger pride, spirit, and the desire to advance UW–Madison’s positive impact on the world.


The APIDA Affinity Group works to advocate for our communities at UW-Madison, activate spaces for Alumni to connect, and advance initiatives supporting students and Alumni. We welcome you in joining us to connect with not just Alumni, but also current students on campus and future Badgers, as we have some fun, build community and success, and celebrate our heritage and identities together.

Join our Affinity Group Celebration on August 3, when Badgers of all ages will gather on campus for family-friendly fun. Learn more and RSVP by July 31.
