High Honors for UW–Madison

2022 has been a year of grand achievements and gold awards.

It’s been a glorious year for the UW. In August, Jennifer L. Mnookin assumed the role of chancellor, bringing new ideas and energy to campus. Badger men’s basketball won a share of the Big Ten championship, with Greg Gard honored as Coach of the Year and Johnny Davis x’24 as Player of the Year. UW–Madison continued its streak of stratospheric rankings among institutions of higher education — 20th nationally and 27th in the world, according to the Center for World University Rankings.

It’s been a good year for On Wisconsin, too. We won the gold award for best magazine from the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE), competing against alumni publications from the world’s other top universities. We also won three CASE awards for writing and design, along with three more from the Milwaukee Press Club in a contest for all Wisconsin newspapers and magazines. Our goal is to be a first-class publication worthy of a first-class university, and we’re proud to add our awards to the UW’s other honors in 2022.

More than prizes, of course, we care about pleasing our readers. A recent readership survey found engagement at an all-time high, with 90 percent reporting that On Wisconsin strengthens their connection to UW–Madison. To make the magazine even more appealing, we’ve improved our print design over the past year, with a web redesign scheduled for 2023.

We hope you’ve had a good year as well, and we look forward to celebrating the UW’s 175th anniversary with you in 2023. Who knows what glories lie ahead.
