Are you interested in working with a graduate or post-doc student through UW-Madison's DELTA internship program? The DELTA internship program at UW-Madison pairs our faculty with graduates and post-doc students to collaborate on teaching and learning projects.
As graduate and post-doc students, DELTA interns are experts in their fields of study and bring new, innovative ideas to the classroom. This is a great opportunity to create change in your course and make a difference in the professional development of a future faculty member.

Tuesday, Feb 28, is the final day to nominate a student for the Wisconsin Technical College System (WTCS) State Ambassador selection process.
The State Ambassador Program began 30 years ago and is financially and philosophically supported by the financial services firm Robert W. Baird and Company, Inc., founded in 1919 in Milwaukee. The State Ambassador Program recognizes and rewards excellence among technical college students and seeks to develop greater public awareness of technical education in Wisconsin.
Every year, each of the 16 technical college districts in Wisconsin selects one student to be its WTCS State Ambassador. These 16 State Ambassadors represent the promise and success of nearly a half million students in the WTCS.
Talk with a student who you believe would make a great ambassador for technical education in the State of Wisconsin and ask them if they would like to be nominated.
