Mission of the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh

As adopted by the Board of Regents of the University of Wisconsin System
In addition to the System and core missions, UW Oshkosh has the following select mission:
Ours is a comprehensive public university with unique ties to both urban and rural environments. We have a tradition of strong programs in the arts and sciences and in select professional career fields. Our faculty and staff are united in believing that the fundamental purpose of a university education is to develop thinking men and women capable of independent growth and adaptation in all roles of life. Accordingly, our select mission as a university is:

  1. To acquire, preserve, and disseminate knowledge.
  2. To provide undergraduate coursework designed to develop learning proficiencies and to cultivate the values and perspectives of educated citizens—in particular, respect for human dignity and cultural diversity, commitment to personal excellence, and the habit of taking thought.
  3. To challenge students to develop their talents, intellectual interests, and creative abilities; to promote an appreciation for both continuity and change; to provide the impetus for a lifelong commitment to, and enthusiasm for, learning; and to prepare persons for critical evaluation and decision making.
  4. To expect scholarly activity, including research, scholarship, and creative endeavors, that support its programs at the associate and baccalaureate degree level, its selected graduate programs, and its special mission.
  5. To provide a broad range of undergraduate degree programs in the arts and sciences, business administration, education, and nursing.
  6. To offer an array of master’s- and specialist-level graduate programs that grow clearly from areas of undergraduate strength and meet the emerging needs of the regions that we serve.
  7. To develop and offer programs and services responding to the needs of the people, institutions, and communities that we serve.

 

History of University of Wisconsin Oshkosh

The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh has a long and distinguished academic history, having served Wisconsin since opening its doors as Oshkosh Normal School in 1871. Keeping abreast of educational trends, the school was designated Wisconsin State Teachers’ College in 1925, and upon the approval of curricula in the liberal arts in 1949, became Wisconsin State College, Oshkosh. Recognizing the growth in enrollment and programs and the inauguration of several graduate degrees, the college was designated as Wisconsin State University Oshkosh in July 1964. Upon the merger of the Wisconsin State University and University of Wisconsin systems, the campus became the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh in 1971.
