Efforts to highlight UW-Madison's connections with the people and communities of Wisconsin will reach every corner of the state through Project 72. The campaign (which received no taxpayer or tuition funding) has placed billboards or other advertising in each of the state's 72 counties featuring a local person whose UW ties have benefited society. Their full stories — including that of Jefferson County farmers Daphne and Lloyd Holterman (above) — are featured on a website that vividly documents our partnerships across America's Dairyland.
