Over its 17 decades, the UW has taught hundreds of thousands of students — some 600,000 have earned degrees, each one influenced in one way or another by at least one instructor. Some faculty members come and go; others stick around and become legends. According to the Secretary of the Faculty’s Office, eight current UW–Madison professors have served for more than 45 years. The odds are pretty good that you took a class with one of them.
