Wisconsin Idea

The Wisconsin Idea is a philosophy that deeply binds the research of the University of Wisconsin to solving the problems of society, from health care to the environment, from agriculture to economics, and all aspects of quality of life.  Originally applied to the State of Wisconsin, it’s often embodied in the phrase “the boundaries of the university are the boundaries of the state”.  Today, the Wisconsin Idea works to address problems from local to global.

For the INES community, the Wisconsin Idea captures much of our activity outside of our research expertise.
