UW-Superior: A Special Place:
The University of Wisconsin-Superior is Wisconsin's leading public liberal arts college. Established in 1893 with a mission to train teachers, it later became a part of the University of Wisconsin-System, and in 1998 was designated as Wisconsin's Leading Public Liberal Arts College by the University of Wisconsin System Board of regents.

The University serves 2,900 traditional and non-traditional students and is dedicated to the integration of liberal and professional studies and serving a diverse student population. UW-Superior maintains the values of its founding as a teacher education college through emphasis on excellence in teaching as well as service to the community and region.

The core mission is student-centered and values oriented, as the institution fosters intellectual growth and career preparation within a liberal arts tradition that emphasizes individual attention and embodies respect for diverse cultures and multiple voices. The richness of programs lend to a very personalized educational environment that integrates theory and practice, liberal and professional education, teaching, scholarship, and creativity.

The University has launched a significant campus-wide Liberal Arts Initiative that includes a First Year Experience, Academic Service Learning, Global Awareness, Writing Across the Curriculum, and a Senior Year Experience. At UW-Superior, we promote the values of academic excellence, integrity, and community within a collegial environment. At the core of our values is the appreciation for, and examination of, diversity, inclusivity, and equity. UW-Superior offers day, evening, weekend, and distance learning classes.

The University reserves the right to check additional references with notice given to the candidates at the appropriate time in the process.
