University of Wisconsin-Superior



In 1893, the Wisconsin legislature established a "normal school" in Superior to train school teachers. The Superior Normal School, which evolved into the University of Wisconsin-Superior, welcomed its first students in 1896. By providing trained, well-educated teachers, the institution helped the small towns and rural areas of the region to grow and prosper.


The University offers:

  • Award associate and baccalaureate degrees in selected fields in education, arts, humanities, sciences, social sciences, business, and pre-professional programs 
  • Offer graduate programs in areas associated with its undergraduate emphases and strengths.
  • Extend its undergraduate and graduate resources beyond the boundaries of the campus through alternative delivery of programs.


The Grants and Research Office advances funded research, scholarship, and creative endeavors for faculty and staff.  It serves as a resource to find extramural funding opportunities and builds capacities of faculty and staff to pursue extramural funding through technical assistance, training, and strategic proposal review.


UW-Superior Career Services, in partnership with faculty, staff and employers, provides students and alumni with opportunities and resources to identify career goals and develop life-long career management skills.
