August 9, 2011 issue of Inside UW-MadisonInside UW–Madison is the university’s electronic employee newsletter. It is delivered directly to approximately 30,000 employees, graduate assistants, retirees and campus affiliates every Tuesday and Thursday morning.

Inside UW–Madison focuses on the people who make the university tick, research that is shaping its future, and the many ways in which the university helps make the state of Wisconsin great.

One of Inside UW–Madison’s key goals is to create a stronger sense of community among faculty, academic staff and classified staff.

Along the way, the newsletter showcases the achievements of employees, links to eye-catching photos and videos, and imparts a little “Inside” knowledge gleaned from the campus community.

Best of all, it’s delivered directly to your email address, and it’s a breeze to read.


In addition to being the official source of news and information for UW–Madison employees, Inside UW–Madison also serves as a venue for you to share ideas and advice. Many issues feature an Interact topic. See recent ones below and join the conversation!
