WiscNet is a membership organization that provides research and education networking services to public and private higher education, K12 school districts, libraries, municipalities, and hospitals throughout Wisconsin. We connect people and strategies to solve common technology challenges, and to develop innovative solutions in support of educational, research, and community service missions.


WiscNet focuses on being ever more inclusive and welcoming conversations with new kinds of members. We continue to increase the resiliency and reach of the community of our networks by growing and delivering valuable services that bring new members and networks of community anchor institutions into our association. We are agile, responsive, and trusted to advance the missions of our organizations within and beyond research and education.

Community Area Networks

WiscNet’s focuses on being a “Community Area Network of Community Area Networks” - the CAN of CANs, if you will.  We serve as the “people” and “strategies” hub for local communities interested in moving forward. Whether the next step is as simple as a community meeting or as complex as developing and sharing full-on services, regionally or statewide, our goal is to make your CAN better, if we can.


WiscNet Services

WiscNet focuses on leveraging the power of the network to provide opt-in, trusted cloud services.  We connect people and build upon members’ collective wisdom. From ad-hoc discussion groups to workshops and specialized communities, we support our members in making the most out of being a WiscNet member.
