Position title: Basic Needs Assistant
Hello! My name is Alizah Qadri, and I am a Basic Needs Assistant with the Office of Student Financial Aid at UW-Madison. Being a first-generation Pakistani American myself, I understand the barriers that can make it challenging to focus on being a student. My hope is to be able to set students up for success by connecting them to resources and addressing their basic needs academically and personally. I completed my Bachelor’s degree in Social Work at Wartburg College in Iowa and am currently pursuing my Master’s in Social Work at UW-Madison.
