Nearly 6 million people call Wisconsin home — fusing together a rich, diverse environment that cultivates innovation and progress. Sometimes we come together and collaborate; other times we collide and clash. Curb: Fusion finds unity in the shared and differing experiences of Wisconsinites, examining not how our differences divide us, but instead move us forward.

Celebrating its 22nd edition, Curb is a lifestyle magazine produced annually by a class of students at the University of Wisconsin–Madison School of Journalism and Mass Communication. Students work together in a capstone course to create individual stories, alternative stories and multimedia pieces to share with others.

Complimentary copies are distributed to thousands of alumni across the state. We wouldn’t be here today without the J-School alumni who created the past 21 editions of our magazine. Curb is published through generous alumni donations, including support from the School of Journalism and Mass Communication Board of Visitors, and is printed in partnership with Royle Printing in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin. Thank you to this year’s online sponsors for making Curb possible.

With the support of our sponsors, Curb has won several awards. The 2020 and 2021 Curb editions received Silver Crown awards from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association Curb stories and multimedia content have won multiple awards from the Wisconsin Broadcasters Association and the Milwaukee Press Club. Last year, a Curb story won an Excellence in Disability Reporting award.

We hope to continue this legacy of excellence with Curb: Fusion.
