University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee















Panther Advocates

The Panther Advocates is a grassroots advocacy coalition of University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee alumni, community members, students and their parents, and all who are concerned with the future of higher education at UWM. We are committed to educating elected officials and our community about the importance of UWM to the state of Wisconsin.

Participation in Panther Advocates allows you to utilize your networking and professional contacts to be an effective and powerful advocate for UWM and higher education.

Your involvement also provides an avenue for meaningful involvement with your university and an opportunity to learn about public policy and issues that affect higher education. Sign up today.

One important reminder for everyone employed by the university: UWM's resources, including its e-mail system, cannot be used for any political purposes. Employees should do all political communications from off campus.
