The University of Wisconsin System, originally founded in 1848, is one of the largest public higher education systems in the United States. The system’s broad mission is “to develop human resources, to discover and disseminate knowledge, to extend knowledge and its application beyond the boundaries of its campuses, and to serve and stimulate society by developing in students heightened intellectual, cultural and humane sensitivities, scientific, professional and technological expertise and a sense of purpose.”

The University of Wisconsin System enrolls approximately 180,000 students annually, employs more than 32,000 faculty and staff statewide, and is comprised of two doctoral research universities, 11  comprehensive universities, 13 freshman-sophomore colleges and the statewide University of Wisconsin–Extension. The flagship University of Wisconsin–Madison is the largest of the campuses and has an enrollment of over 43,000 undergraduate and graduate students.

Our work with the University of Wisconsin ranges from strengthening zero-deforestation commitments for beef and soy in the Brazilian Amazon and Cerrado, to developing new technologies to explore the behavior of individual bacterial cells that form a symbiosis with an animal host.
