UW-Parkside is continuously at work connecting with the people and resources that contribute to the growth of our region. With 70 percent of our students coming from southeastern Wisconsin and more than 70 percent of alumni residing in the area, UW-Parkside is an important partner in developing talent to meet the needs of a growing and vibrant economy.
Our involvement with M-WERC is an extension of efforts to provide research, consultation and talent development to the Energy, Power & Control Industry cluster and drive stronger links between our university and regional companies.
We are building strong education partnerships in business, energy, engineering and manufacturing with UW-Milwaukee, Gateway Technical College, Milwaukee Area Technical College, Waukesha County Technical College, Moraine Park Technical College, and the College of Lake County in Grayslake, Ill. An important result of our work with Gateway Technical College is Wisconsin's first post-baccalaureate program to help meet the growing demand for middle and high school technology and pre-engineering teachers.
