UIU-Milwaukee/Elkhorn centers to celebrate 40 years of education

MILWAUKEE, Wisconsin (August 28, 2017) – For a combined 40 years, Upper Iowa University has been providing students attending the UIU-Milwaukee and UIU-Elkhorn centers an Education Built for Life. In honor of UIU-Milwaukee Center’s 25th anniversary and UIU-Elkhorn Center’s 15th anniversary, the public is invited to attend an open house reception and celebratory program at the Milwaukee Center Thursday, September 14.

Among the dignitaries planning to participate in the event are UIU President Dr. William R. Duffy, Gateway Technical College President/CEO Dr. Bryan D. Albrecht, UIU-Milwaukee and Elkhorn Center Director Marshall Whitlock, Milwaukee County Supervisor Jim Luigi Schmitt and West Allis Mayor Dan Devine. The September 14 open house will be held from 5-7 p.m., with a short program scheduled at 6 p.m.

“For the past 25 years, Upper Iowa University has offered students throughout southeastern Wisconsin an opportunity to achieve their higher educational goals without having to travel outside of their communities,” Whitlock said. “On behalf of UIU and Gateway Technical College, I would like to invite the community to join in our celebration and continue exploring all the educational opportunities that UIU has to offer.”

The UIU-Milwaukee Center, located at 620 S. 76th Street (across from State Fair Park), has served students living and working in the Milwaukee metropolitan area since 1992. Located on the Gateway Technical College campuses in Elkhorn, Racine and Kenosha, the UIU Elkhorn Center has served traditional students and adult learners of southeastern Wisconsin since 2002. With flexibility and a commitment to high standards and quality, UIU strives to meet the needs of all students with convenient evening and weekend classes, daytime classes, hybrid classes (onsite/online combined), concentrated eight-week sessions, and six different registration periods throughout the year.
