Join us in celebrating UWO's 150th anniversary


From busy indigenous communities to a manufacturing and learning center in east central Wisconsin, the Winnebago region is rich with stories and tradition. Learn about moments in UWO’s past to see how history stacks up upon this land.


Our sesquicentennial year of 2021 will be filled with a variety of events, activities and programs. Learn about these events on our sesquicentennial calendar and share your ideas for holding special programming or an event of your own.


In 2021, we embark on our 150th year of inspiring leaders, researchers and champions, and look forward to what our students dare to achieve. Help us ensure that our tradition of excellence and opportunity thrives for the next 150 years.
