EAP’s 40th Anniversary

Did you know that the Energy Analysis and Policy (EAP) graduate certificate program at UW–Madison celebrated the 40th anniversary of its founding in 2020? We are grateful for everyone who has been a part of this 40-year history, from the founding faculty, to current students, and YOU — thank you for joining EAP in celebrating this milestone!

For most EAP students and alumni, the program is a major part of your graduate experience. As we begin our fifth decade, help us celebrate the past and future of this remarkable program. We invite you to share memories, meet current students, or make a gift to support another 40 years of success.

EAP is bigger than it has ever been with (drumroll, please) . . . 50 current students! We cannot wait to see the impacts our students make as they become professionals working on a wide variety of issues related to energy, such as its influence on climate change, health, and more! This group of current students includes over 50% women and over 30% international students.

Enrolling in EAP is an impactful way for students to add breadth on energy topics to their disciplinary graduate degree. Energy has never been more important and through our interdisciplinary curriculum and opportunities for networking, EAP is training the next generation of energy leaders to find solutions across the energy sector.

Since its inception in 1980, cross-campus collaboration has been central to the EAP program. Today, EAP’s students and faculty are involved in more than 20 programs across campus — from public affairs to environmental studies, mechanical engineering, and more.

A gift of any size will enhance the reach and quality of interdisciplinary energy education at UW–Madison for many years to come!
