Since 1861, the Wisconsin Alumni Association (WAA) has worked to inform UW-Madison’s graduates and organize them in support of their alma mater and each other. Founded to advocate on the university’s behalf when education budgets were tight during the Civil War, WAA continues to rally alumni to help the UW achieve its goals.
Over the years, UW alumni have helped inspire and create some of the university’s most popular traditions and most important institutions: the Camp Randall arch, Homecoming, the Memorial Union, the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation, the UW Foundation and All-Campus Party. WAA also hosts reunions, maintains local chapters, supports lifelong learning events and publishes magazines and online materials for alumni, including On Wisconsin and Badger Insider magazines.
