UW-Superior: A Special Place:
The University of Wisconsin-Superior is Wisconsin’s leading public liberal arts college. Established in 1893 with a mission to train teachers, it later became a part of the University of Wisconsin-System, and in 1998 was designated as Wisconsin’s Leading Public Liberal Arts College by the University of Wisconsin System Board of regents. The University serves 2,900 traditional and non-traditional students and is dedicated to the integration of liberal and professional studies and serving a diverse student population. UW-Superior maintains the values of its founding as a teacher education college through emphasis on excellence in teaching as well as service to the community and region. The core mission is student-centered and values oriented, as the institution fosters intellectual growth and career preparation within a liberal arts tradition that emphasizes individual attention and embodies respect for diverse cultures and multiple voices. The richness of programs lend to a very personalized educational environment that integrates theory and practice, liberal and professional education, teaching, scholarship, and creativity. The University has launched a significant campus-wide Liberal Arts Initiative that includes a First Year Experience, Academic Service Learning, Global Awareness, Writing Across the Curriculum, and a Senior Year Experience.  At UW-Superior, we promote the values of academic excellence, integrity, and community within a collegial environment. At the core of our values is the appreciation for, and examination of, diversity, inclusivity, and equity.  UW-Superior offers day, evening, weekend, and distance learning classes.
