Tom Luljak, vice chancellor for University Relations & Communications

The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee is a major public research institution playing a vital role in driving the state and regional economies, and making higher education accessible to all students.

The Office of Government Relations cultivates and maintains relationships with local, state and federal officials and agencies. These relationships are critical to advancing UWM’s mission with the people of Wisconsin.

All members of the UWM community – alumni, students, faculty, staff and friends – can be a positive influence on the future of Wisconsin by getting involved in the legislative process. Elected officials and their staffs need to know what is being done by the university, and you can help by telling them this great news. The links throughout this section are here to help you become an informed university citizen.

By becoming involved in nonpartisan efforts that favor higher education at Milwaukee’s largest university, you demonstrate the breadth and depth of support for UWM.

One gentle reminder for everyone employed by the university: UWM’s resources, including its email system, cannot be used for any political purposes. Employees should do all political communications from off campus.

Thank you for your support of our university.
