Program & Events

The Alumni and Donor Experiences Team is responsible for translating engagement strategies into meaningful events and experiences for alumni, donor and university stakeholders.

Our events provide memorable opportunities for constituents to engage with the university and with each other. Strategic program design raises constituents’ awareness about the positive impact of UW-Madison, deepening their pride, and inspiring their support.

Program Design

Guided by engagement strategy, we design enriching alumni and donor experiences that highlight the impact of research and practice at UW-Madison. From organizing lectures and bus trips to creating daylong symposia and multi-day events, our programming experts match UW content with audience needs to tell the university’s story and advance its objectives.
