Thousands have lost jobs due to COVID-19, making it difficult if not impossible for them to pay rent, buy food and stay in school. The Chancellor’s Student Success Fund will provide a wide range of emergency financial assistance, including scholarships to keep students on the path to success. Please consider a gift to help UWM’s students in crisis
Made In Milwaukee. Shaping the World.

Our Campaign Priorities:

  • icon

    Student Success

    THIS IS WHY: Fund scholarships for low-income students to attend our College for Kids program, and for students in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) disciplines. With your support, many Milwaukee-area students will benefit from the fun, enriching College for Kids experience. Provide scholarships for veterans for noncredit courses and certifications. The state of Wisconsin does not offer our vets any financial support for these educational opportunities; instead, we must rely upon private funds to help them prepare for the next chapter in their lives.

    Research Excellence

    THIS IS WHY: Support innovative programming and scholarships to develop water technology professionals, who will encourage water-usage efficiency, water-centric communities, and sustainability practices to protect our region’s precious water resources.

    Community Engagement

    THIS IS WHY: Sponsor outreach and programming to attract more members to the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, which offers a wide range of courses and programs for older adults who are passionate about learning. Underwrite upgrades for the SCE Conference Services Center, to provide attractive, state-of-the-art classrooms for professionals and their organizations in downtown Milwaukee—as well as a new facility for live, online broadcasts.

It's nice to have a local resource like UWM SCE to leverage when one’s career moves in a new direction. UWM has always been my go-to training resource.
