UWM educates more than 26,000 students and is an engine for innovation in southeastern Wisconsin. UWM recently received two significant recognitions. The Carnegie Foundation granted the campus the Community Engagement Classification in 2015 for its significant work in Milwaukee and Wisconsin’s southeast region. In February 2016, UWM was designated a R-1 Doctoral University –Highest Research Activity, by the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education.
