Resources for New Faculty and Staff

UW-Madison and the greater Madison community have a lot to offer, but sometimes it is hard to find what you need, especially when you are new to the area. This site was developed as a resource for new and prospective faculty and staff interested in learning more about working at UW-Madison, and living and thriving in our community.

The resources listed below are ever-evolving, and we do our best to keep them up-to-date. To make suggestions for additions and notify us of any  broken links or corrections, please contact us at

This is an accordion element with a series of buttons that open and close related content panels.
