COVID-19 Updates

The School of Continuing Education continues to monitor the evolving pandemic – keeping the health and safety of participants as our first priority while following the guidance of the university. Social distancing is no longer required by UWM. We will, however, limit in-person attendance at the conference to allow for a safe distance between participants in all sessions. UWM currently requires face coverings for all individuals regardless of vaccination status at all university events. We will update our website and communicate any revised COVID-19 policies as we approach the conference in spring 2022.

“Understand that you cannot fly under the radar. Too often we think that our performance will speak for itself and we do not advocate for ourselves.You have to be visible in order to achieve your dreams.”
