A Wisconsin Alumni Association Bascom Chapter

Our purpose is to build an inclusive local community of UW alumni and supporters united by Badger pride, spirit, and the desire to advance UW–Madison’s positive impact on the world.


The Washington, DC chapter promotes the interests of UW–Madison and the Wisconsin Alumni Association by supporting more than 7,000 alumni, students, and friends of the UW residing in the DC area. We provide a variety of fun, enriching programs to connect alumni to each other and our alma mater, and we encourage qualified young people to attend UW–Madison by providing annual need-based scholarships to local students.
