What is going to happen with the athletics programs at UWM at Waukesha and UWM at Washington County?
Athletics at the branch campuses will use a “club sport” model starting in Fall 2018. Under the club sport proposal, these athletics programs will:
- Be defined as “club sports” in all institutional documentation.
- Differ from club sports at UWM in that they may have paid coaches and funding for WCC staff and operations.
- Be funded with allocable segregated fees.
- Be referred to as “college athletics” for marketing purposes.
- Continue to function under the structure and direction of the Wisconsin Collegiate Conference (WCC).
