Due to ​the growing threat of the COVID-19 virus (coronavirus), all UW-Madison ​non-essential, in-person campus events through at least ​June 30 have been canceled.

So that we can continue to share promising practices and ideas with you while you stay safe at home, ​WISCAPE is venturing into the online world and developing some virtual programs. View our events page ​to see what is coming up. 

WISCAPE's Noel Radomski has been tracking UW System campuses' furlough decisions. ​You can view and download the information he has compiled, which ​he is updating regularly, here.
