Throughout its history, the School of Human Ecology has been on the leading edge of work that improves the lives of children, families, consumers, and communities. The School is a leader among peer schools and beyond, for our innovative, human-centered approach to education, research, and public service.
Humans have called this place home for 12,000 years and counting. Today, the University of Wisconsin–Madison rests in the ancestral land of the Ho-Chunk Nation, the People of the Big Voice, who have called this place Teejop (day-JOPE) for time immemorial. We as a university community continue to create and build upon our partnerships with the 12 First Nations of Wisconsin. We as a state university respect the inherent sovereignty and unique legal status, as affirmed and set forth in state and federal law, of the First Nations of Wisconsin.
