Upcoming Series:

The Wisconsin Idea: Whitewater, Wisconsin, and Beyond.

The Wisconsin Idea is a unique and long standing principle of the University of the Wisconsin System, a tradition of community engagement that guides our work beyond the boundaries of our campus and the promise that the university makes to the state to improve the lives of all Wisconsin residents. You have heard this phrase but how is the Wisconsin Idea practiced at UW-Whitewater? Lectures in our spring series will explore how UW-Whitewater faculty and students share their expertise and resources in areas as diverse as science, technology, health, business and the environment. Join us to see how we are making that happen in Whitewater, in Wisconsin, and beyond.
