Listen to Aaron Bird Bear's Chancellor's Convocation speech

October 26, 2011

School of Education academic advisor Aaron Bird Bear addressed UW-Madison's incoming undergraduates at the Chancellor's Convocation for New Students on Thursday, Sept. 1. This year, the convocation focused on legacies and the fulfillment of the Wisconsin Idea. Bird Bear discussed the theme of legacies in relation to Wisconsin’s American Indian history and how prior to becoming UW-Madison, campus grounds were a home to American Indians, whose burial mounds peppered the area. Many of those mounds remain and are featured in Bird Bear's popular place-based landscape tour of campus.
