UWM is a founding partner in the Moon Shot for Equity.

The Moon Shot for Equity is a public-private partnership with education firm EAB dedicated to making sure that more students complete college degrees, especially those most often left behind – low income, first generation and students of color. Building on a long-standing commitment to serve a diverse population in an urban setting, UWM believes the Moon Shot for Equity will help improve the quality of life for all in southeastern Wisconsin.

A founding member of the partnership in southeastern Wisconsin, UWM will work to complete a series of goals in taking a comprehensive approach to remove obstacles and create solutions aimed at closing equity gaps in higher education. 

Goals are organized into several categories. Many of these goals fit seamlessly into existing UWM initiatives. We believe the Moon Shot will provide the boost that helps create meaningful, lasting change.
