Prioritizing the Student Connection

Student connection is an important component of the UWM experience. We have identified and implemented experiences and strategies to create an environment where students say, “I feel like I belong in the UWM community.” Students who feel a sense of connection to UWM and have developed relationships with other students, faculty, and staff are more likely to stay and graduate.

Our Strategies

  • Build authentic relationships so that students feel that they belong
  • Develop pathways of student engagement from point of entry through graduation
