Max Kade Institute

for German-American Studies
University of Wisconsin-Madison


As part of our educational mission, the Max Kade Institute brings the issues of immigration/ emigration/ migration as well as cultural and language diversity to children in grades K-12. By making its resources available to teachers and students, the Institute hopes to connect immigrant experiences of the past with the present. Innovative and interdisciplinary curricula are being developed to encourage students to examine their role in a diverse society.
