For over 150 years, the University of Wisconsin-Platteville has served as an educational leader and economic hub for Southwest Wisconsin and the surrounding counties in Iowa and Illinois. The strength of the university is built on the history and traditions of our three campuses located in Platteville, Baraboo Sauk County, and Richland Center. To continue our legacy, the 2019-2024 Strategic Plan relies on everyone – students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community partners – to contribute to its success.
The 2019-2024 Strategic Plan has its foundation in our mission and vision and commitment to serve as active, collaborative stewards of place. To do this, the university must serve as an integral member of its communities and leverage Southwest Wisconsin's unique characteristics to:
- Foster transformative education,
- Increase access, and
- Invest in our future.
As the University continues to grow and evolve, divisions, colleges, and departments are empowered to develop their own paths to contribute to this vision. As a STEM leader with a strong commitment to the liberal arts, we continue to develop new understandings of our shared identity and the important ways we serve our region.
