Welcome to the UWM Division of Student Affairs

Welcome to UWM and the Panther Family!

Staff members within the Division of Student Affairs are dedicated to helping all students be successful during their time at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM) and beyond. Getting involved on campus will take you a step further in your journey—students are most successful in the university setting if they make connections and utilize the variety of resources available, and that’s our primary focus.

Student Affairs staff members provide many of the services that support students outside the classroom, through student health and counseling, child care, fitness and intramural sports, housing, dining, Union activities and events, and others. We support an inclusive community and students’ sense of belonging through our various resource areas (MAVRC, LGBTRC, IEC, WRC), and advocate and support students through crises and decision-making by the work we do in our Dean of Students office. We enhance the “college experience” through athletic events, leadership opportunities, and our student organizations (including Greek Life), and we make multiple connections to learning that takes place within the classroom through projects and events that are part of our Living Learning Community and Center for Community-Based Learning, Leadership and Research areas, among others.

Walk the campus, explore the city of Milwaukee, ask questions, meet faculty and staff and learn all you can about your University. Study hard, make new friends, get involved and have fun. We want you to love it here and make the most of your Panther experience!
