The University of Wisconsin has had a presence in southeastern Wisconsin since 1933 when it established two-year centers in Racine and Kenosha. For years, residents in our communities were eager for a university that offered a four-year degree. Finally, in 1965, the Wisconsin Legislature passed a bill merging the two centers and creating the University of Wisconsin-Parkside. UW-Parkside's mission statement says, "The University of Wisconsin-Parkside is committed to high-quality educational programs, creative and scholarly activities, and services responsive to its diverse student population, and its local, national and global communities."
