Important members of our community, department alumni participate in regular campus French and Italian events, mentor current and recent students, help shape our study abroad initiatives in the French- and Italian-speaking worlds, and fund scholarships for students otherwise less able to travel during their studies. We regularly feature news about department program alumni in our newsletters, and scores of colleges and universities throughout the country have French and Italian faculty who did their graduate work at Madison.
