UW Connects helps spread the Wisconsin Idea throughout the state by way of its three programs: Badger Talks, which brings UW professors and other experts to give talks and engage cutting-edge ideas with the larger community; Bucky’s Classroom, an outreach program committed to promoting the value of higher education among K-8 students across the state of Wisconsin; and Badger Ambassadors, UW students who share their experiences through small and large presentations and events with organizations, groups, schools, and businesses.
