Chancellor Bob Meyer

Welcome from Chancellor Meyer

Please accept my warmest greetings to the University of Wisconsin-Stout, Wisconsin’s Polytechnic University. I hope you find it as special as I do.

We take pride in many things at UW-Stout: our polytechnic designation, winning the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award, our eStout laptop program, the modern facilities, our partnerships with business and industry and our growing enrollment. But nothing means more than the tremendous success our students have after graduating — 98.2% of our graduates are working within six months of leaving campus, and 80% of them are in their field of study.

If you are a prospective student or family member, please look at our impressive array of programs. They have been developed to provide our graduates with the best chance to succeed in the workplace. UW-Stout also offers the most online courses in the UW System.

Welcome, and thank you for your interest in UW-Stout. With our focus on applied learning, career preparation, and collaboration, students graduate from our institution ready for their next steps in work and life. We offer a wide array of specialized programs, and work closely with business, industry, and non-profit institutions to ensure our curriculum is up-to-date.

Our outstanding faculty and staff are dedicated to ensuring that our students leave the University with the knowledge and skills they need to be successful.

Our facilities, with three times more laboratories and studios than traditional classrooms, enhance our focus on applied learning. Our programming, with more than 90% of our students completing a co-op, internship, or other out-of-classroom experience, guarantees readiness for careers. Finally, the infusion of general education courses throughout our programs of study ensures that students are ready not just for their next job, but for future career changes, and their role as contributing citizens in society.
