You can support learning opportunities for students in the First-Year Interest Groups Program.

Financial support of FIGs provides funding for out-of-classroom experiences like field trips, performances, special theme meals, and guest speakers. Students in FIGs have:

  • traveled to Belize and Ecuador for “Rainforests and Coral Reefs”
  • visited the Jewish Museum Milwaukee for “Jerusalem: Holy City of Conflict and Desire”

Gifts to our Sense of Community Fund are made through the UW Foundation, which assures compliance with university policies.

Thank you.
