Our eight guiding values are not simply words – they are foundational to UW-Milwaukee. Established in 2013, these values remain more relevant than ever in our world of continuous change, challenges and opportunities. During the year ahead, we will spotlight each of our guiding values and those in our campus community who embody them.

  • Tait Szabo

    "Our students are at an impressionable age and…with that comes responsibility, especially when teaching sensitive subjects that involve issues like political philosophy or ethics. We need to take special care to present the subject matter in a scholarly way rather than in a way that represents our own values."

    Tait Szabo, associate professor of philosophy, College of General Studies, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee at Washington County

  • "When it comes to decision making and policy, it's important for students to not only be in these conversations, but to be welcome in them…to feel that they have a voice and that voice matters. Just knowing there are people at the university who want us in the conversation helps build a sense of community and belonging."

    Emily Kuester, UW-Milwaukee senior, president of Student Association at UWM
