Creating Connections

Donors help pave the way for students to leverage what they’ve learned directly into their communities — and their stories are inspiring.

Students experience learning by doing at UWM, and they all launch from UWM ready to apply their knowledge to the workforce. These experiences are a core part of attending UWM, and why donors are integral to their future. Here are just a few examples of students and their stories.
