Exploring UWM Waukesha And UWM Washington County

Emily Files
The two latest additions to the UWM family are UWM Waukesha and UWM Washington County campuses.

If you asked someone how to get to the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee campus a couple of years ago, they'd steer you to the East side of Milwaukee, where the university has grown into one of the top research universities in the country. But today, directions to UWM also lead you to Waukesha and Washington counties. That’s where UWM’s two-year campuses are located, offering another dimension in learning to people in southeastern Wisconsin.

On this edition of UWM Today, we take a closer look at UWM Waukesha and UWM Washington County. Our guest is Simon Bronner, who oversees the two latest additions to the UWM family. Bronner has been with us since the beginning of this academic year. He comes to UWM from Penn State University, where he was a distinguished professor of American studies and one of the country’s leading experts in the study of folklore.

Tom Luljak hosted UWM Today on WUWM for more than two decades and is the inaugural host of Curious Campus.
