It features sustainable, state-of-the-art classrooms, labs, project rooms, faculty offices and flexible space for community-based nonprofits and businesses to convene workshops and conferences. University-wide, Sage Hall relieves crowding and provides opportunities for future renovations to update facilities for the Colleges of Nursing and Education and Human Services.


UWO Surpasses Capital Campaign Goal Ahead of Schedule

The Foundation surpassed the $20-million comprehensive pride.purpose.promise. capital campaign goal ahead of schedule, completing the University's first-ever campaign for capital improvements, expansion of high impact student and faculty collaborative learning programs and financial scholarships.

The campaign, launched in 2006, targeted a $20 million goal over five years. With the support of more than 14,000 donors, the campaign eclipsed $21 million in just four and a half years. Originally, the UW Oshkosh Foundation targeted a $24 million goal, but a reduction in State-required matching funds for one element of the campaign – UW Oshkosh's first new academic building in 40 years — lowered it to $20 million.
