Mission and Core Values


The Dean of Students Office supports holistic student well-being and success while providing intentional and practical responses to matters that impact UWM students and community. We accomplish this through educational programming, collaborative partnerships and a commitment to inclusion and equity.


  • Community: We support a community that develops relationships through empathy, compassion and respect.
  • Learning: We believe that we are all on a journey to seek knowledge and cultivate education through experiences while promoting the diversity of ideas.
  • Responsibility: We foster an environment where we are all accountable for our actions and recognize the impact we have on ourselves and the community.
  • Equity: We promote an environment that advocates for the opportunity for students of all identities and backgrounds to succeed
