Campus Happenings – March 31-April 6

Student Affairs is providing weekly events, opportunities, and activities that Badgers can join online or in person. Building community is key to finding your home on campus. We encourage students to engage with others and find people to connect with at UW–Madison.

Join us this week for the following events and opportunities.

Highlights of the week:

  • Asian Pacific Islander Desi American (APIDA) Heritage Month 2021: This April 2021, APIDA Heritage Month will be exploring the many ways that APIDA identity is shaped both within and outside the community. The Spaces in Between will center on the lived experiences of Asian Pacific Islander Desi Americans to illustrate how identity continues to be situated and reimagined in a changing world. Join as we bridge The Spaces in Between us within the APIDA community!
