Grants made to faculty for professional development ensure we retain an engaged and highly prepared cadre of outstanding educators dedicated to student academic success.

“I am so grateful for the support of the UW Wausau Campus Foundation, which has buoyed me through a period of revising, editing, and completing my novel Labor Day. The support of the foundation has helped keep me going. I am sharing everything I have learned with my students with similar aspirations.”

We are better able to attract and retain students and faculty due in part to outstanding facilities, equipment and other resources made possible through your contributions.
