      For those wishing to excel in scholarly and creative enterprises outside of their classes, this is the right university. UW-Whitewater has a national reputation in undergraduate research, mainly for two reasons: 1) we have terrific student researchers; 2) we are committed to providing them with first- rate opportunities. In particular, we provide strong financial support of undergraduate researchers and we support top quality mentoring.
