Foreign aid leader’s visit focuses on UW partnership opportunities

As a Wisconsin native and UW alumnus, USAID Administrator Mark Green understands better than most the breadth of expertise that exists on the University of Wisconsin–Madison campus. He saw it as a law student, as a state representative and later as a member of congress representing Wisconsin’s 8th district.

On Oct. 18, Green’s knowledge of UW–Madison’s academic range brought him to campus for a discussion about potential partnership opportunities between USAID and the university. Green has held the top post at USAID — the United States’ foreign aid and development — since 2017.

“I can’t think of any USAID interests where UW doesn’t have a subject matter expert,” said Green. “The issues where we have questions, you have answers.”
