Greetings and welcome to the Division of Academic Affairs!

Academic Affairs manages most aspects of the student’s educational experience. At UW-Platteville, this includes the three colleges: Business Industry Life Sciences and Agriculture (BILSA); Engineering Mathematics and Sciences (EMS); and Liberal Arts and Education (LAE). Our division also oversees the Karrmann Library, Graduate Studies, the Office of Institutional Research, the Distance Learning Center, and the Office of Continuing Education.

At UW-Platteville, we promote excellence by using a personal, hands-on approach to empower each student to become broader in perspective, intellectually more astute, ethically more responsible, and to contribute wisely as an accomplished professional and knowledgeable citizen in a diverse global community.

UW-Platteville offers 42 majors, 64 minors, 17 pre-professional programs, and three graduate programs on campus.  The Distance Learning Center offers two undergraduate degrees and 6 graduate programs.

Whether it’s in the classroom, the laboratory, the studio, the athletic field, or online, our faculty and staff take a personal interest in UWP students.  The faculty-to-student ratio is 25:1. With respect to practical learning experiences, over 69% of UWP students complete an internship.  This is the highest among the 4-year institutions in the University of Wisconsin System.

During the 2016-2017 academic year and beyond, Academic Affairs is committed to building on its strength in applied learning by expanding opportunities for students to experience high-impact educational practices.  These include growing undergraduate research, study abroad, service learning, creative endeavors, and internships.
