Badger Tracks Spring 2014
After a year’s hiatus, the Global Hot Spots program is back. The popular lectures feature UW faculty experts who shed light on world events related to politics, global health, economics, human rights, the environment, and more. See uwalumni.com/ghs for more information and to view past lectures online. Global Hot Spots is a partnership among WAA, the Division of International Studies, and PLATO (Participatory Learning and Teaching Organization).
WAA continues to coordinate Meet the Chancellor events to introduce Rebecca Blank to Badgers around the world. The chancellor will visit with alumni in London and Paris in April and then head to northern Wisconsin to get to know UW graduates in Ashland in May.
Each year, WAA recognizes alumni chapters that excel in providing a variety of programs and activities. The most active are designated as “Bascom Chapters.” Out of 65 domestic chapters, WAA named 20 to this highest tier of alumni organizations in 2013. Each Bascom Chapter is awarded $1,000 in scholarship funds to distribute to UW students in their respective communities.
