We are part of the Centers for Advocacy and Student Engagement (CASE), a collective effort to educate, connect resources and develop programming that advocates for all students, ourselves, and each other in order to impact change at structural, institutional, and systemic levels.

The members of CASE include the Inclusive Excellence Center (IEC), Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer Plus Resource Center (LGBTQ+RC), Military and Veteran’s Resource Center (MAVRC), and the Women’s Resources Center (WRC). Each of these Centers serve students by creating spaces, programs and resources that support each student’s journey through UWM.

CASE Shared Values:

  • Advocate for Students – Work to engage and uplift the voices of underrepresented, marginalized and minoritized student communities at UWM.
  • Create an Affirming Environment – Through programming, services, education, and policies, CASE members foster a sense of belonging and community accountability advancing systemic change.
  • Care – Creating a respectful, compassionate, trusting environment that celebrates success and fosters the health and well-being of the collective staff to better serve our students.
