University of Wisconsin-Whitewater



About Us

At the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, we inspire, engage and transform lives.

Founded in 1868 as a normal school that trained teachers for one-room schoolhouses, UW-Whitewater has evolved into a comprehensive university offering high-quality programs at the associate, bachelor, master, and doctoral levels. We are highly successful in both in-person and online instruction, leading the way in preparing students with the outstanding skills that make them strong candidates for 21st-century careers and community leadership.

The Warhawk family — led by caring faculty and staff — is devoted to student success within a broad range of academic programs at both our main Whitewater campus and Rock County branch campus. UW-Whitewater has a special mission to serve students with disabilities and, as such, embraces the principles of universal design and is one of the most accessible campuses in the state. We are a university with an entrepreneurial spirit and championship culture. We value collaboration, inclusivity and opportunity, integrity, learning and academic excellence, service and social responsibility, and shared governance.
