UWM Police continue to monitor the encampment on the lawn south of Mitchell Hall. UWM’s first priority is the safety and well-being of our students, employees and visitors. Though we understand the encampment is unsettling for many in our community, the encampment has not disrupted daily campus operations. 

Members of the UWM administration are having conversations with students and community members in the background. Additionally, an email was sent by the Dean of Students to all students Friday morning. UWM also shared a Friday-afternoon message from the UWM Foundation that provided an overview of the independent nonprofit organization’s operations and investments. UWM has consistently been clear with protesters that we want to work toward a peaceful resolution.
