Cultures and Communities Program director Gregory Jay and the Center on Age and Community director Anne Basting brought IA to campus and serve as the two designated campus representatives for reporting purposes. Together, they have gathered together a dedicated network of people and welcome opportunities to brainstorm and/or lead campus and community initiatives.

UWM’s membership was first made possible by the generous support of former Chancellor Carlos Santiago and former Provost Rita Cheng. We’re happy to report that Chancellor Michael R. Lovell and Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs Johannes Britz continue to support IA@UWM.
