Badger Tributes

Carmen Batz Spahn


Pioneering Badger Woman in Science

In 1912, my grandmother, Carmen Batz Spahn, graduated from UW-Madison with a BS degree in Botany. She paved the way for my engineering degree 72 years later.

Recognizing the badgers who shaped our lives

While the physical contraints of Alumni Park limit the number of Badgers we can recognize in the park, here we are limitless.

Create your own Badger Tribute to recognize a friend, family member, mentor, or other UW grad who has influenced your life and exemplified the Wisconsin Idea.
