About University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee

University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee (UWM) is much more than buildings and books. We’re a community inspired by history, motivated by vision.

Their leadership, collaboration, passion and vision will propel you toward greater heights in research, student achievement and community engagement. We offer a uniquely relevant learning experience, educating more Wisconsin residents than any university in the world and recruiting a growing population of international students and faculty.

As the most diverse institution in the University of Wisconsin System, we’re a learning destination for more than 25,000 students.

First-generation college students arrive here straight from high school, or years later – after starting families, changing careers or serving in the military. We make learning accessible at every age, stage of life and location. At UWM, we all share the motivation to learn and to excel. We value unique perspectives and possess the talent and desire to nurture ideas that make global impact. The comforts and connections of a major metropolitan city meet the resources and expertise of a world-class research institution – we are UW-Milwaukee.

UWM and Milwaukee have it all. Join the UWM family and the Milwaukee community and grow academically and personally – accessing unique, only-at-UWM opportunities to forge lifelong friendships and chart a career path long before crossing the commencement stage.
