Collaboration and Partnerships
UW Oshkosh’s impact on the region extends far beyond its brick-and-mortar boundaries. The institution’s economic contribution to the state totals more than $500 million annually. As an incubator of creativity, knowledge and innovation, the University extends faculty expertise through collaborations with schools, businesses and communities regionally as well as nationally and globally.
Building on UW Oshkosh’s legacy of educating first-rate teachers, the University forges many key educational partnerships. From housing the state’s largest Head Start program to collaborating with NEW ERA (Northeast Wisconsin Educational Resource Alliance) and the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U), these partnerships positively impact students of all educational levels.
Because education plays a critical role in society’s progress and success, UW Oshkosh has developed strategic collaborations with organizations and programs that impact students at all levels.
The University extends its expertise to the region’s business and industry sectors through involvement with the New North consortium, the Wisconsin Family Business Forum and other key initiatives, contributing to workforce development, economic growth and the overall quality of life in northeastern Wisconsin. UW Oshkosh contributes to economic growth and a vital business sector in northeastern Wisconsin through a number of collaborative efforts.
As an economic engine and cultural anchor in northeastern Wisconsin, UW Oshkosh helps the region thrive through collaborations like events that build bridges between the campus and the community. We provide access to innovative resources, people and ideas through events and enrichment opportunities. Join us on campus for a show in the Fredric March Theater, a concert in the music hall or at the exceptional home of Titans sporting events, the Oshkosh Sports Complex.
Beyond campus, UW Oshkosh increases quality of life in the region through community collaborations.
