A red banner used for commencement with the word "Wisconsin"

The University of Wisconsin–Madison is a place where people come together to do incredible things. From artistic breakthroughs to launching Badgers into space, we’ve been at the forefront of major events since 1848.

We are a unique place. Where students work with the same zeal whether they’re starting a satirical government or polling for a serious candidate. Where silliness and studiousness aren’t mutually exclusive. We are a place of healthy tension. Future-focused, yet rich in heritage. Filled with humble doers who achieve incredible things. These dichotomies define UW–Madison, and they influence the look, feel, and tone of our brand.

We are much more than our academic reputation or our athletic success. Our brand is how students, faculty, alumni, and the public react when they hear the name UW–Madison.
