GWS Professors Chris Garlough and Annie Menzel awarded “Our Shared Future Heritage Marker Grant”

GWS Professors Chris Garlough and Annie Menzel have been awarded an “Our Shared Future Heritage Marker Grant.”  The goal of this grant opportunity is to spark learning and deepen understanding about the Ho-Chunk Nation through meaningful learning experiences embedded in the Wisconsin Experience. The Wisconsin Experience is UW-Madison’s vision for the total student experience, which combines learning in and out of the classroom, with students engaging in four key areas of intellectual and personal growth: empathy and humility; relentless curiosity; intellectual confidence; and purposeful action.

This particular grant opportunity is intended to support academic units as they incorporate the “Our Shared Future Heritage Marker,” and what it symbolizes, into learning experiences for UW–Madison students. Specifically, this grant will provide the funds to bring in Indigenous scholars for four upcoming events during the 2020 spring semester.

More information regarding the recently dedicated Our Shared Future Heritage Marker is listed on the Our Shared Future webpage and on this UW-Madison News post.
