Dean's Message


Stephen Schmid

Welcome to the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee at Waukesha. I invite you to browse our website or visit our campus to learn more about what we have to offer. We offer the best of two academic worlds with small classes and dedicated faculty that you would expect at a private college, along with access to the resources of a world-class university system.

Students have the opportunity to complete their freshman and sophomore years in more than 200 academic majors and earn an associate degree. With engaging courses and exceptional faculty, we offer a supportive environment for students who are taking an active role in shaping their futures. When students are ready to pursue a four-year degree, it is easy to continue their studies at UW-Milwaukee or transfer to another UW System or private school.

The small college atmosphere allows students of all ages to find ready access to faculty and staff. In addition, a scholarship program and a commitment to student success help empower motivated students to succeed.

At UWM at Waukesha, there's much life beyond the classroom too! Here students can learn leadership skills and get involved with athleticsstudent government, numerous student clubs, music and theatre. Additional opportunities include the annual Student Research Symposium, Lecture and Fine Arts Series and Continuing Education offerings.

Explore our website or join us for an upcoming Preview Day and find out why we’re the best start for the life you want!
