About UWM at Waukesha

The strength of the Waukesha campus is the priority given to teaching. The campus’ exceptional faculty and staff make sure every student receives the instruction, guidance and attention they deserve. In addition, relationships are fostered with the community, other UW campuses and educational institutions to help set our students up for success.
