Titan Life Stories

Beyond the everyday activities of the campus community, the stories shared here provide an opportunity for you to experience individual employee’s unique perspectives that allow us to be collaboratively innovative in how we meet our mission of serving students in an ever-changing global environment.

UW Oshkosh continually strives to create a path of greater cultural understanding and competence through openly identifying individual passions, and growing dialog around the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion. Who we are is what drives our strength as a community and creates opportunity for all to feel a part of something fantastically greater.

Feel free to reach out to the Workplace DEI Advisory Council if you have any questions, concerns, or would like to know more about what we are doing to create an inclusive university community. University resources are available near the bottom of the page. If you are a current UWO employee and would like to share your story, complete the interest form and join the conversation. We look forward to hearing from you.
