Partners in Giving Update

The Partners in Giving campaign, “Let’s Build a Better World Together,” is in full swing. Contributions are slightly higher than they were last year at this time. Partners in Giving is the state employee workplace fundraising campaign in Dane County. Employees are able to make a donation to the charity or charities of their choice and select how they want to pay for it. Donations can be made by payroll deduction, cash or check. The campaign runs through Nov. 30, so there’s still time to give. To make a contribution online or learn more, go to

You can contribute to a drug-free workplace

All faculty and staff are strongly encouraged to help make UW–Madison a drug-free workplace. You can do this by learning the facts about substance abuse, encouraging others to avoid substance abuse, and knowing where to go for help with a drug or alcohol problem—either for yourself or someone else. Please review the laws and expectations regarding substance abuse, which apply to all members of the UW–Madison campus community. Complete information can be found at
