The UW Now: Ideas That Are Changing Our World

Three world-changing professors are coming to Chicago:

  • Faisal Abdu’ Allah — A professor of printmaking whose groundbreaking work is tackling some of today’s toughest topics
  • Page Moreau — An innovative researcher who is changing how we think about consumerism, problem solving, and creativity
  • Garret Suen — A groundbreaking scientist who is leading the way in the race to convert the world’s biomass into energy

Be there for Chancellor Rebecca Blank’s remarks and lightning talks by the professors. Hear these experts answer your questions in a discussion moderated by Wisconsin Foundation and Alumni Association president and CEO Mike Knetter. Then help to honor the Badger of the Year Award recipient. Following that, join fellow alumni, campus leaders, and Chancellor Blank for a strolling supper filled with Badger pride.
