The Archives Department

The Archives Department has the two-fold mission of documenting the history of UWM and providing access to primary sources, largely from the metropolitan Milwaukee area, that have long-term research and instructional value for UWM academic programs. We serve as an Area Research Center for the Wisconsin Historical Society, providing access to primary sources from all around the state.
