UW-Rock County is a valuable resource for the community. It serves not only the needs of students for quality post-secondary education, but also the needs of the community for continuing education, cultural events and faculty expertise in many disciplines.
The mission of the University of Wisconsin Whitewater at Rock County Foundation is to promote excellence on the UW-Rock County campus while enhancing the educational and cultural opportunities available to the community.
The Foundation plays a vital role at UWW Rock County. While the facilities and land are owned by the taxpayers of Rock County and the State of Wisconsin provides equipment, faculty and staff, it is up to the Foundation to provide much-needed scholarships, professional development, non-budget items, and community programming.
