Results and rewards for MIU-funded projects
Across campus, advances in advising, teaching and learning, support services and more are paying off in the lives of University of Wisconsin-Madison students.
Now in its fifth full year, the Madison Initiative for Undergraduates is making a difference. Funding from a supplemental tuition charge has funded 54 projects specifically designed to improve the value, quality and affordability of the undergraduate experience at UW-Madison. 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.
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:
