Farewell to Our Good Friend & Colleague

Mike Krauski, who was a beloved part of this college and our engineering community, mike_krauskipassed away Oct. 29 from his battle with cancer.

Mike joined UWM in 2009 as the first director of corporate relations for the College of Engineering & Applied Science. He made numerous, valuable contributions to our endeavors, including facilitating research between local companies and our college, and helping to launch a product realization course and student start-up challenge, both of which pair students with Milwaukee industries.

More importantly, Mike was a special friend to so many of our faculty, staff and students. He was extremely caring and strived to help all who crossed paths with him.

We lost a dear friend and colleague, but we join his family in fondly remembering all of our wonderful interactions with him. Our sincere condolences go out to them.
