All Ways Forward

Back to News

The All Ways Forward campaign is the largest comprehensive campaign in the history of UW-Madison. A committee of dedicated leaders offers their vision and generosity to inspire support for key College of Letters & Science campaign goals:

On Research & Innovation

I support direct investment in discovery and innovation across the university and L&S in the areas of hard sciences and medicine, but I have a deep and personal commitment to the History Department because its research efforts do not always have the same level of institutional support that the hard sciences do. We must ask why, as well as how.

– John Rowe, ‘67

On the Student Experience

A degree from L&S is an introduction to a world of opportunity. If we can help students to articulate their skills and ambitions, network them with alumni who care and provide a level of astute advising about career options, then we will have fulfilled our responsibility among public universities in preparing liberal arts students for successful lives and careers.

– Todd Warnock, ‘83

On Student Excellence

Pursuing a degree in L&S can be a great adventure. But we need to make sure our students have the support they need, not only to embark on that adventure, but to flourish while they are here. Everyone, no matter their circumstances, should be able to take full advantage of all the opportunities this college has to offer.

– Doris Weisberg, ‘58

On Faculty Excellence

To this day, I remember the faculty at Wisconsin who opened my mind and helped determine my direction. World-class faculty can go anywhere — we want to make sure that their research and teaching benefit Wisconsin.

– John Holton, ‘72
