UWM Police continue to monitor the encampment outside of Mitchell Hall and are aware of the expansion to the east lawn. 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. In the event of an imminent public safety concern or an emergency, UWM Police will exercise its authority to keep the campus community safe. 

Earlier today, UWM administrators met with student protest organizers for nearly two hours to discuss paths to a peaceful resolution to the encampment and hope to continue further discussions.
