University of Wisconsin–Madison

Associates

CREECA associates at the University of Wisconsin-Madison are:

  • Faculty members whose scholarly interests and activities intersect with those of CREECA, but who do not have a primary research and/or teaching interest in the region.
  • Academic and University staff members whose interests and activities intersect with those of CREECA, including:
    • Non-instructional academic staff with an interest in the region;
    • University staff with an interest in the region;
    • Emeritus professors with an interest in the region;
    • Honorary fellows who are granted renewable zero-dollar appointments in CREECA;
    • Honorary fellows with an interest in the region who are granted zero-dollar appointments in other departments.

CREECA associates are invited to take part in the life of the center, but generally have less regular participation in CREECA’s mission of teaching, research, and outreach on the region.
