The PRIDE Message was developed to improve retention and satisfaction of new students at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. The items listed in the PRIDE Message are based on behaviors of successful students on our campus. UWM is committed to helping students utilize the PRIDE Message to be the best they can be and to help them navigate all of the resources and opportunities available.
