Since the University’s inception as a teacher-training school in 1871 to its stature today as a premier comprehensive institution, quality and innovative higher education have been hallmarks of UW Oshkosh’s success. In the early years, the Oshkosh State Normal School was Wisconsin’s foremost institution for educating teachers and the first such school in the nation to have a kindergarten. Tuition was free to all who declared their intention to teach in Wisconsin public schools. Today, UW Oshkosh proudly serves the region as the third-largest university in Wisconsin. Recent key campus initiatives include a commitment to sustainability and the ideals of a liberal education across the curriculum.
