UWM Continuing with Fall Semester Schedule

As of October 8th, the plan is to continue instruction in the current mode through the end of the fall semester. Classes taught face-to-face currently will continue in that mode until the end of the semester. UWM leadership monitors the larger COVID-19 situation daily, including positivity rates on campus, and would notify the campus community immediately if this decision were to change. The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee continues to partner with the Milwaukee Police Department through the MPD Grant Initative to comprehensively and proactively educate students on health and safety impacts and responding to parties and other social gatherings as needed.
