“Well Red,” a sculpture by artist Douwe Blumberg of a studious-looking UW-Madison mascot Bucky Badger sitting atop a pile of books, looks out on Lake Mendota from Alumni Park at the University of Wisconsin-Madison during the autumn morning of Oct. 8, 2017. The newly-opened park, part of the Wisconsin Alumni Association (WAA), is located between the Memorial Union and Red Gym (Armory and Gymnasium) overlooking the shoreline.

Between April and August, the planning team has prepared nine sessions. The sessions in April through mid-May are on Tuesdays, while the remaining sessions occur on Wednesdays. All sessions are two-to-three weeks apart.

The planning group and our guest speakers will assign homework for individuals and/or mentor-mentee pairs to complete between most sessions.

Session topics and locations may be subject to changes or updates.


Before our first in-person meeting on April 3, 2018, all participants should complete the Leadership@UW self-assessment. Additionally each mentor-mentee pair should meet to discuss and process the self-assessment results.
