The national reputation
of UW-Madison’s School of Education
is due, in large part, to the dedication and talent of its faculty and staff.
Each year the School recognizes outstanding members of its family with Distinguished Achievement Awards.
The School recently announced winners for the 2017 awards cycle, and this year’s honorees will be recognized at a Faculty & Staff Distinguished Achievement Awards Reception on Tuesday, April 25. The event runs from 4 to 6 p.m. in the Education Building’s Wisconsin Idea room, with a program to begin at 4:45 p.m.
