Our shared humanity

The Badger Ready program centers human dignity and curiosity. Advisors firmly believe each student is their own subject matter expert about themselves. Equipped with institutional knowledge and academic guidance, advisors partner with students to reach their goal of graduating from UW–Madison.

Transparency in communication

Advisors strive to break down cultural barriers and unspoken rules of university life to ease the transition of returning to college. We will provide options and explanations for students to make academic decisions in their best interest.

Growth mindset

The Badger Ready program embraces lifelong learning and a growth mindset. We understand that a transcript alone doesn’t tell the whole story of a person’s academic capabilities. This is especially true the longer someone has been away from an academic setting. Badger Ready advisors focus on who you are today.
