Sociocultural Programs

As part of UWM’s efforts to control the spread of Covid-19, all Sociocultural Programs scheduled through April 10 have been cancelled. We are saddened to lose these exciting programs, and we assure you that the Union is very interested in revisiting these cancelled presentations and including them in our future calendars. Please stay tuned to our website, social media pages, and newsletter for updates regarding future programming and other information. Again, we apologize for any inconvenience that this causes to our audience and community.

Welcome to the Sociocultural Programming community here at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee! Like many other Student Involvement programs, Sociocultural Programming strives to help students learn, connect, and become leaders here on campus. However, Sociocultural Programming dares you to dig deeper than the typical college student. We challenge you to explore the many layers of yourself while getting to know others, on campus and around the world.

Our mission is to provide events and activities for the campus and community designed to increase awareness and understanding of diverse identities, social justice, and urban issues. Our programming explores and celebrates differences and commonalities related to race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, spirituality, cognitive and physical ability, socioeconomic status and more.

Here, we push you to become more than great. Whether it be using the power of your voice at Lyrical Sanctuary, meeting new folks at Identity Coffee Hour, completing our Lead the Change social justice leadership development workshop series, or just simply sharing a space with us, we invite you to attend as many of our events as possible!
