Chinese students first began attending UW-Madison in the early 1900s and formed a Chinese students association in 1909. Today, the largest group of international students at UW-Madison comes from the People’s Republic of China (3,286 for fall 2021, which is 51% of all international students for that semester).
Additionally, about 450 students study modern and classical Chinese each year at UW-Madison, which has been offering doctoral degrees on China-related topics since 1924.
These numbers speak to the exponential growth of Badger alumni from, or living in, the China region.
