Frances Vavrus, dean and vice provost of the International Division at the University of Wisconsin–Madison.

Message from the Dean: March 2024

The last month has been one of excitement and activity for the International Division.

During the final days of February and the early days of March, we celebrated Peace Corps Week on campus. This has become a tradition for UW given our long history of service, our active Returned Peace Corps Volunteers community in Madison, and our consistent track record as a top producer of volunteers. We held numerous events to honor Wisconsin’s legacy of service and inspire new generations, including special advising sessions, the Peace Corps Story Slam, and the Freeze for Food 5K. Thank you to all who turned out for these events.

In addition to celebrating this longstanding tradition, we also began a new one with our first Fulbright Week. It was launched to raise awareness of the many opportunities available through this prestigious program. Read more.
