The Milwaukee Idea

The Milwaukee Idea is the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee's initiative to forge vital and long-lasting community-university partnerships. Started in 1999, the initiative has led to the expansion of service learning efforts, partnerships with local K-12 schools, and university participation in affordable housing development. Consortium activities include economic development projects, action-oriented research, and entrepreneurial training to help emerging and established entrepreneurs gain critical business skills.
