Why cut funding for programs that help rural and urban communities cultivate creativity as well as jobs? 

While it can’t predict what will happen this year, science can tell us a lot about how facts move through the human cognitive process.

How can specific investments in the knowledge economy and our creative sectors make a brighter future for Wisconsin?

When the Wisconsin Academy was founded in 1870, the American fascination with science was in full bloom. Today, not so much.

Writing is a gateway to insight and wisdom, and Wisconsin needs both these days.

When the winds of change are in the air, it’s a good idea to gather one’s extended circle—especially the wisdom-keepers and those who understand our history and how it shapes these times and the future.

This spring, the Wisconsin Academy brought together our Waters of Wisconsin Initiative leaders for a day of intense discussion about the state of Wisconsin’s freshwater ecosystems.
