A legacy worth building on
For more than 150 years, the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh has been dedicated to teaching the next generation of educators. What started in 1871 as the Oshkosh Normal School for teacher training has grown to a nationally-recognized and innovative program that expands to meet the needs or students in our region and beyond.
In 2023, that dedication will grow as we complete a major building project to update the College of Education and Human Services to transform the learning environment into a modern center for teaching education.
These renovations showcase our renewed commitment to preparing the professional leaders in education, human services and counseling, who will set the pace in education reform and social change in an increasingly diverse environment.
