Creating a garden plaza set within the heart of campus will honor the considerable legacy of the NPHC chapters and further cultivate a campus community that invests in inclusion and creates a sense of belonging for Black students. Placing historical markers to publicly recognize and celebrate the NPHC is not a new tradition nationally, but this act would make UW–Madison the first in the state to stand alongside students and create a physical space on campus to honor them.
It is not too late to make a lasting impact through your gift. Donate to the Divine Nine Garden Plaza fund and help us honor the history of NPHC and create a more inclusive campus community for the future where all are seen.
Join the conversation on social media using #dayofthebadger: proudly sport (and snap a photo of) your Badger-red attire, share your favorite UW memories, and celebrate the impact Badgers have on the world.
Day of the Badger is a day — and then some — to celebrate and support UW–Madison. It’s exactly 1848 minutes for all alumni, students, and friends throughout Badger nation to make a far-reaching impact in a short amount of time.
