About This CampusUW-Superior is Wisconsin’s Public Liberal Arts College with a history of educational innovation dating to its founding in 1893. Today, UW-S supports a wide variety of academic programs. While we are proud of each of our academic departments, some of our notable programs include Aquatic Biology, Elementary Education, Business Administration, Social Work, Transportation and Logistics Management, Art Therapy, and Legal Studies. Alongside academics, we are committed to inclusive excellence; creating a space for all students regardless of background, economic status, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, ability, identity or spirituality to thrive and reach their fullest academic and personal potential. We are as focused on supporting our greater community as we are our students. Academic Service-Learning allows community-based learning embedded within a credit-bearing course, enhancing students' understanding of the course's learning objectives and of their sense of civic responsibility.
Location InformationIn honor of the Anishinaabe people, the original peoples and caretakers of this land, we recognize that the University of Wisconsin-Superior inhabits the land of the Ojibwe people. The city of Superior overlooks the western tip of the magnificent Lake Superior and boasts a vibrant scene of local music, art, dining, and shopping. For those who enjoy the great outdoors, Superior is surrounded by miles of hiking trails and waterfront with the Big Lake just minutes from campus.
Helpful InformationBeing a small campus, you have the luxury of receiving very individualized guidance and support while at UWS. Incoming students are welcome to join our vibrant community of international and exchange students within our EDI Department and will be included in numerous group events. UWS is a great option for anyone wanting to have a small campus experience in a beautiful and quiet area of the country. Any student questions can be directed to Anya Russom who is a Superior local.
