Wisconsin is brighter when knowledge is shared and science informs decisions that affect our people, lands, and waters.

Wisconsin is brighter when it is brimming with the arts and a lively creative culture.

Through programs like our Climate & Energy Initiative, we're harnessing the power of civil discussion to address climate change and explore diversified energy choices.

Wisconsin is brighter when we come together in discussion about—and exploration of—the best ideas of today.

We're a trusted resource for people who believe that learning in life doesn’t stop after college or with expertise in a single discipline or area.

Join us at the intersection of the sciences, arts, and letters and get involved in the Wisconsin Academy. Together we can make Wisconsin brighter.
