Screen Shot 2014-10-27 at 10.32.02 AMMany people may not be aware how partnerships with businesses, schools, and state and local governments have contributed to the excellence of UW-Madison. Indeed, these collaborations have fueled scientific discoveries and shaped teaching in classrooms on campus and around the world. Join CALS Dean Kate VandenBosch on Wednesday, November 5 at 6:30 p.m. at the Minocqua Brewing Company, as she examines UW-Madison’s Partnerships in the Northwoods: Putting the “You” in UW.

2014 marks CALS’ 125th anniversary—a fitting time to reflect back and look ahead. Kate will share how the UW, through collaboration and innovation, is building Wisconsin’s economy, advancing health, promoting environmental stewardship and enhancing our quality of life. She will also explore some of the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. During this conversation she wants to hear from you! What role is the university playing in your neck of the Northwoods? What are the needs and opportunities for the coming decades? Kate encourages you to share your thoughts and ideas about ways the university works in northern Wisconsin.

So come on out, join the conversation, and celebrate 125 years of partnerships. Be part of the discussion that is Science on Tap. The event is free and pre-registration is not required.
