Here at Parkside, our top four priorities are as follows:

1. Health and safety of our campus community and the communities we serve.

2. Successfully deliver our academic mission.

3. Join the global effort to 'flatten the curve.'

4. Leverage the expertise of our faculty and staff, and the assets of the university to support our community.

We are well equipped to rise to the challenge and support both students and faculty in their efforts to continue to deliver our curriculum.

Graduation is the highlight of a student's academic career, a celebration of 18+ years of work. Unfortunately, our 2020 graduates’ final semester is not ending as they planned and UW-Parkside’s spring commencement ceremonies have been postponed. We still want to celebrate their accomplishments this spring – and YOU can help!

Send the Class of 2020 a message of support, a note of congratulations or a welcome to the Parkside alumni family. Share a video message or written statement via Twitter, LinkedIn or Facebook and use the Hashtag #dearparkside2020. If you would prefer to email your message, that's just fine too!

The COVID-19 pandemic has created financial challenges for many in the community, including UW-Parkside students. While the university is doing all it can to assist, we can't do it alone. Now more than ever, our students need help.

The UW-Parkside Foundation's Future Focus Fund will be used to help fulfill student financial needs that arise from this emergency situation. For this semester and as we look ahead to the next school year, Future Focus awards are more important than ever to provide relief and help keep UW-Parkside students' educations on track.


Please consider a gift today to help UW-Parkside students overcome emergency financial challenges.
