Welcome to UW-Whitewater!

The Human Resources and Diversity Department is pleased to welcome you as a new member of the UWW campus community. As an institution, we are committed to: 1) advancing knowledge and understanding; 2) growing and developing each individual; 3) fostering personal and professional integrity; 4) serving others; and 5) developing a sense of community, respect for diversity, and global perspectives. Each of us, regardless of our position title or job function, can contribute to UWW’s mission and values by striving to fulfill these important initiatives in a unified and caring manner. In essence, that is who we are and why we are here.

Human Resources and Diversity (HR&D) has compiled some links and resources that we hope will make your first weeks and months at UWW less frenzied, more organized and structured. If you have any questions or concerns regarding your appointment here please feel free to contact us. We will connect you with an HR&D staff member dedicated to assisting you.


Again, welcome to the University of Wisconsin - Whitewater. We’re glad that you’re here. We all have many functions within our jobs, but the principal function of HR&D is to assist, develop, and advocate for our employees. Please give us that opportunity; we promise to do our best to fulfill it.
