Serving our Communities

UW-Platteville Richland serves an important role in our greater Richland Center community. From opportunities for arts and entertainment to enriching community classes and great spaces to host your events, we are dedicated to serving the local community and surrounding region.

Arts and Entertainment

A cultural hub for the region, UW-Platteville Richland offers something for everyone, from performances to events to art exhibits throughout the year.

The campus-community theatre, maintained by the community and sponsored by the department of communication and theatre arts, typically produces one play a semester. The production ensemble welcomes both students and community members, allowing our students to gain exposure to talented and experienced mentors in the community with which they can get personal attention and gain experience in the arts.

Community Programs

Brush up on job skills, learn a new hobby or just have some fun! UW-Platteville Richland’s Continuing Education Institute offers a variety of enrichment classes. We also offer a variety of opportunities for children of all ages to learn and grow through our youth programs and summer camps and conferences.
