Progress and promise mark program’s start
April 12, 2011
University of Wisconsin-Madison students are beginning to reap the rewards of a campuswide effort to boost the value, quality and affordability of an undergraduate education made possible by the Madison Initiative for Undergraduates.
The initiative uses a supplemental tuition charge to invest in the quality of the undergraduate experience while vastly expanding the pool of need-based aid available for UW-Madison students and their families.
In its second full year, the initiative’s results are now impacting undergraduate students across the campus.
The Madison Initiative is already making visible, positive impacts on undergraduate education and student life. Throughout the duration of the five-year initiative, we'll continue to share on the website stories of these impacts.
