Join the Wisconsin Academy for a day-long exploration of the role of higher education in advancing science. We’ll look at challenges and opportunities for researchers in today’s world, strategies that educate and inspire the next generation of scientists, and practical expressions of the Wisconsin Idea that connect science to Wisconsin lives outside of academia.  Reaching, Teaching, and Searching brings together Wisconsin experts and leaders  from science, academia, business, and communities to examine pressures on science in higher education as we move into the next two decades, and to share, explore, and discuss strategies to sustain Wisconsin’s role as a global leader in science.
