Dean's Message

Welcome to UW-Sheboygan. On behalf of our students, faculty and staff, I invite you to explore our web site and make an appointment to visit our campus to learn more about what we have to offer students in our community. You’ll like what you see -- the best of two academic worlds: the small classes and personal attention you would expect at a private liberal arts college and access to the resources of a world-class university system.

Here you can pursue an Associate of Arts and Science degree while building a strong academic foundation for continuing your undergraduate work at a four-year institution. Our rigorous curriculum of liberal studies and pre-professional courses prepares you for further study or for entry/ reentry into the workforce. Our graduates compete well with their peers upon matriculating at their chosen four-year institutions, and they are working in rewarding careers throughout the state and the nation. Since arriving, I have met many successful business and community leaders in our region that started their educational careers at UW-Sheboygan.

What makes us so good at what we do? At UW-Sheboygan, you have the advantage of a supportive, student-focused environment, as well as a vibrant student life. Our faculty members are all experts in their disciplines, bringing their knowledge and passion for those disciplines to the classroom. They are committed to providing our students with a first-rate educational experience. In small classes through one-on-one interactions, they engage students in developing a love of life-long learning and provide a solid foundation for further education and career advancement. Thanks to partnerships with some of UW System’s four-year institutions, we are able to provide you with the option of pursuing your four-year degree right here in Sheboygan in some fields.

Whether you just graduated from high school or are a returning adult student, UW-Sheboygan provides you with an affordable, high quality education in a supportive environment future that will give you “the best start for the life you want!”
