RANGER RECOVERY

University of Wisconsin-Parkside Land Acknowledgment Statement, May 2021
We the Community of the University of Wisconsin-Parkside acknowledge with gratitude and humility the First Nations People of Wisconsin, whose original homelands lie within the state. We especially wish to recognize the Ho-Chunk, Miami, and Potawatomi Nations for their significant historical and spiritual connections with the Parkside area. Our footsteps do not replace theirs, but rest alongside them. Today, Wisconsin is home to 12 First Nations communities: the Ho-Chunk Nation, the Oneida Nation of Wisconsin, the Menominee Nation, the Forest County Potawatomi Community, the Stockbridge-Munsee Band of the Mohicans, the Brothertown Indian Nation, and six Lake Superior Bands of the Ojibwe Nation: the Bad River, Lac Courte Oreilles, Lac du Flambeau, Mole Lake Sokaogan, Red Cliff, and Saint Croix bands. The University of Wisconsin-Parkside acknowledges and honors this history and these nations.

Moon Shot for Equity 

UW-Parkside, UW-Milwaukee, Carthage College, Milwaukee Area Technical College, and corporate partner EAB, are announcing the first-in-the-nation Moonshot for Equity partnership with the goal of eliminating gaps in graduation rates among white and historically underserved student populations.
