Engagement leads to learning and success.

The Universities of Wisconsin offer endless opportunities for students to get engaged, get motivated, and make a difference.

Experiential learning opportunities like research, internships, co-operative education (co-op), study abroad, and service learning not only enhance student learning, but also lead to jobs! Employers are more likely to hire recent graduates with experience, and our students can find those experiences at a UW.

  • More than half of UW students complete an internship
  • 90% of undergraduates participate in high-impact practices
  • Over 60% of students engage in community-based service learning
  • Thousands of undergraduates engage in research each year, often as early as their first semester on campus
  • Thousands of students participate in study abroad opportunities annually around the globe
