- UW-Madison is nationally recognized for its extensive choices for study-abroad opportunities, language instruction, worldwide research and international student enrollment. Consistently ranked in the top 10 for the number of students studying abroad, the university offers more than 180 programs in more than 70 countries. More than 4,000 international students, representing 131 countries, are enrolled at UW-Madison.
- Students, faculty and staff are motivated by a tradition known as the "Wisconsin Idea", first started by UW President Charles Van Hise in 1904, when he declared that he would "never be content until the beneficient influence of the university (is) available to every home in the state". The Wisconsin Idea permeates the university's work and helps forge close working relationships among university faculty and students, and the state's industries and government.
