The Wisconsin Idea

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.

Lectures in the Fairhaven Lecture Series are open to the public at no charge and are held on Mondays at 3:00 pm during the academic year in Fellowship Hall of Fairhaven Senior Services, 435 West Starin Road in Whitewater, Wisconsin. Guest/street parking is adjacent to the building
