Since 1968, the University of Wisconsin-Parkside has been enriching minds and changing lives of those who attend. That rich legacy continues today.
Small classes and one-on-one faculty attention have been our hallmark, and continue to be part of an experience that brightens futures. Our student-centric approach means students are never taught by assistants, don't get lost in a crowd, and do get to work side-by-side with faculty dedicated to their success.
We also support students by designing custom-tailored degree programs that meet the needs of today’s demanding job market, as well as students' unique curiosities. Combining academic disciplines can energize new pursuits and discoveries, so we encourage students to create the interdisciplinary course program that suits their interests.
One of 13 four-year institutions within the University of Wisconsin System, Parkside provides an educational value to our students that's unparalleled. An affordable, high-quality education is an investment in one's future, and we believe the cost of an education should not prevent any student from achieving his or her educational and professional goals.
Parkside students receive a strong return on their investment. We empower our graduates and certificate recipients with the knowledge and practical skills vital to achieving personal and professional success in the changing local and global communities in which they live and work. And our ever-growing academic reputation, regional status, and location along the Milwaukee-Chicago corridor provides students with access to the region’s top employers.
Here, on our idyllic campus set on 700 acres of natural Wisconsin prairie and woodland, you’ll find energetic students making the most of their higher-education experience. With open spaces like our on-campus disc golf course, a diverse variety of student organizations, and our position as a regional center for the performing arts, Parkside is a community that's easy to call home.
This is Parkside.
