Picture of Soyeon Shim.

Since our start in 1903, the School of Human Ecology has seen continuous growth, change, and numerous majors! All evidence of our being able to adapt and respond to an ever-evolving world. However, throughout the many changes, what has always been at the heart of SoHE is our passion for improving the human condition.

Thank you to our engaged alumni and friends of the school. It’s because of you that SoHE is able to continue to build on our 115-year legacy and positively impact the lives of so many across the country and around the globe.

On, Wisconsin!
