Scholar Sip is a free community event held in the library on select Thursdays over the lunch hour. Come find out about the incredible research, resources, innovation, and unique works of UWM staff – and enjoy a free lunch!

No reservations are needed, and everyone is welcome! All you need to do is bring your appetite for good food and good conversation. Scholar Sip will be held in the library lounge on the second floor of the UWM at Washington County campus in West Bend.

All Scholar Sip events are made possible by the generous support of the Washington County Campus Foundation.
