Welcome to Teejop, an extraordinary cultural and agricultural center with thousands of years of human story.

Teejop (or Four Lakes in Hoocąk language) is where the University of Wisconsin-Madison main campus is located, but with UW-Madison research and agricultural stations, UW Health clinics, and Division of Extension offices located in each county, UW-Madison is located throughout Wisconsin with many connections to the 12 American Indian Nations of Wisconsin.

Within the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Office of University Relations, and in partnership with the Division of Extension, the Office of Tribal Relations works to foster strong ties between the the 12 First Nations of Wisconsin and the University. Find out more about Tribal Relations.
