Results and rewards for MIU-funded projects
The Madison Initiative for Undergraduates (MIU) was launched in 2009 with the primary goal to improve the quality and long-term value of the undergraduate educational experience at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
The projects funded by MIU were specifically designed to improve the value, quality and affordability of the undergraduate experience at UW-Madison. Over a period of five years, results from MIU have demonstrated that well-designed investments of new dollars can definitively improve educational outcomes.
At the same time, the pool of need-based aid has vastly increased, helping UW-Madison students and their families more easily afford the cost of a world-class education.
The projects and positions funded by MIU will continue to be supported as integrated facets of the Wisconsin Experience.
Since MIU’s inception in 2009, projects funded through the initiative have made a visible, positive impact on undergraduate education and student life at UW-Madison. Read more about some of these projects:
