Badger Family Forums

Badger Family Forums are virtual events that bring together a group of campus experts who answer your questions about a particular topic. Hosted by the Parent and Family Program throughout the year, topics range from health, safety, study abroad, academics, and more.

In case you missed our October Badger Family Forum on safety, you can view the conversation online here.

Our next Badger Family Forum will take place on November 10th from noon-1 p.m. and is focused on supporting your student as they near the end of the fall semester.
