Faculty and Staff Campaign

Thanks to you, thousands of doors open wide every day at UWM and say, "Come in!" Behind our doors are the people, knowledge and ideas that students need to achieve their goals.

Open doors and people like you--dedicated faculty and staff--make UWM successful. We teach smarter, in greater numbers, retain higher percentages and graduate more students than ever before.

Thanks to you our University flourishes.

Employees also contribute to our success by supporting the UWM Gives to UWM campaign. Employees who make a gift support initiatives that help the University make strides toward a better education for our students, provide meaningful experiences for our employees and create a powerful presence in our community.


Reasons to Give

  • Support university-wide or school-specific programs that aren't completely covered by tuition.
  • Create scholarship and fellowship opportunities for deserving students.
  • Enhance resourses at the UWM Libraries, Panther Athletics or any number of University centers.
