About UW-Platteville

UW-Platteville is one of 13 publicly supported comprehensive universities in the UW System. Founded in 1866, UW-Platteville is the oldest public teaching institution in the state of Wisconsin. We are proud of our students’ contribution to their pursuit of academic excellence and the leadership they continually demonstrate throughout the state, region, and nation. As our nickname implies, our UW-Platteville “Pioneers” have created the very foundation for which we are known. Our leadership in the colleges of Business, Industry, Life Science and Agriculture; Engineering, Mathematics and Science; and Liberal Arts and Education helps students build on the foundation of strong values, commitment to excellence, leadership for a stronger world, and a knowledge of technology which prepares them for life in the 21st century. In 2017-18, the university further strengthened its footprint in Southwest Wisconsin by collaboratively integrating with two-year campuses UW-Platteville Baraboo Sauk County and UW-Platteville Richland. We encourage you to visit https://www.uwplatt.edu/ for more information on any of the three campuses.
