UW-Madison Overview

The University of Wisconsin-Madison is one of the premier public universities and research institutions in the United States. Created at the same time Wisconsin achieved statehood in 1848, the university became the state’s land grant university. It continues to be Wisconsin’s flagship teaching and research university with a statewide, national, and international mission offering programs at undergraduate, graduate, and professional levels in a wide range of fields, while engaging in extensive scholarly research, continuing adult education, and public serve.

With a $3.4 billion budget, UW-Madison educates more than 47,000 students and employs some 24,000 faculty and staff. Composed of 13 schools and colleges, the university offers nearly 300 undergraduate majors and certificates as well as more than 250 master’s, doctoral, and professional programs. UW-Madison’s research enterprise is one of the most robust in the nation, ranking among the top 10 universities in expenditures. UW-Madison is guided by the Wisconsin Idea, a century-old principle and public-service charge that the university should improve people’s lives beyond the classroom.

The contemporary campus is considered to be among the most archaeologically rich campuses in the United States today, in part due to Teejop being located in a cultural center of the mound building peoples who created massive monumental art burial sites that circumscribed each of the Four Lakes. In Dane County, conical mound (hemispherical) and linear mound (wall-like) burial sites were first created some 2,500 years ago, with effigy mound burial sites (representation figures) first created some 1,500 years ago. There were more than 1,200 burial sites known as conical, linear, and effigy mounds in Teejop, and there were more than 20,000 conical, linear, and effigy mounds located in what now comprises 41 of the 72 counties in Wisconsin. Today, there are 34 extant mound sites on campus.

DEM DEI Curriculum

In concert with the goals of UW-Madison, the Division of Enrollment Management (DEM) is committed to creating a more diverse and inclusive environment for team members as well as the campus as a whole. As such, DEM should not only be a place that “has” diversity – it should be a model of a truly inclusive environment where all team members feel that they can bring all of who they are as a meaningful, valued, and respected contributor to our individual and collective work. We seek to build up an ecosystem of inclusive policies, practices, and people that is worthy of the students and communities we serve.

To facilitate this, 5% of each team member’s job description is dedicated to participation in divisional diversity and inclusion plans and to helping our Division be a leader on campus in this area. We encourage our teams to attend trainings and experiences that will support their growth individually and make our Division and our campus a better place to work.
