A message to our partners
The COVID-19 pandemic has created incredible challenges for higher education institutions around the world, and the University of Wisconsin–Madison has not been immune to those challenges.
However, as we deal with the impact that this crisis has had on the lives of our students and colleagues, our thoughts are also on our partners around the world from colleges and universities, governments, nonprofit and for-profit organizations, and more. We are grateful for your continuing support and friendship.
Over the past weeks:
- Program providers and host universities have worked diligently to help over 1,000 UW–Madison students studying and interning abroad worldwide return to the U.S. These same partners have offered alternative instruction to ensure that students can earn credit for the semester.
- Organizations at the local, state, and federal levels have offered resources and tools for instruction and expressed their support for students, ensuring that they can continue to progress and grow academically, personally, and professionally.
- Partner institutions have shared their support for UW–Madison and have affirmed their continuing commitment to current and future collaborations, while also exploring ways to further our work together during this time.
- International Division staff have been active in creating opportunities for international engagement and offering support across campus
