University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Academic Support
The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee's Athletic Department is committed to enhancing the opportunities of academic, athletic and personal success of every student-athlete. As part of UWM's commitment, a partnership has been created between the academic and athletic communities on campus to give all student-athletes an opportunity to achieve academic success.
UWM has had a full-time athletic academic advisor since 1998, and recently added a second staff member dedicated to academics, reinforcing its commitment to its student-athletes' academic success. All new student-athletes meet with their advisor on an individual basis to assess specific needs. Programs for academic advancement are developed, including monitoring courses, grades and academic progress.
UWM's commitment has paid off. The Panthers have regularly had more student-athletes on the Horizon League Honor Roll than any other league school, and the department's cumulative grade-point average is better-than-3.0.
The Academic Assistance Center, located in the new Pavilion, provides student-athletes with a quiet place to study, as well as one-on-one tutoring opportunities. The academic center also houses a full computer lab and numerous tutoring rooms, and provides a closely-monitored atmosphere for studying and academic progress.
