The School of Information Studies fosters a community of learning and research through collaborations with colleagues, students, community members, practitioners and organizations.

We value the diverse role, voice and contribution of each member of the school and the community, and we recognize that our strength results from working together toward a common purpose.

The nonprof-IT program provides organizations with IT solutions and support at no cost. In return, UWM students gain real-world experience working on project teams and providing technology solutions, and receive credits toward graduation while developing a passion for service.

Diversity Initiatives

The UW-Milwaukee School of Information Studies (SOIS) acknowledges the educational and social benefits that flow from having a diverse faculty, staff and student body committed to inclusion and equity. The concept of diversity includes but is not limited to race, ethnicity, culture, national origin, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, disability, religious belief and political belief. We welcome the opportunity to enrich our individual and collective experiences.
