Driving The Economy Forward
At UW-Stout, we foster a culture where students gain invaluable skills and knowledge. With 3 times as many labs as lecture halls, our students are immersed in industry-relevant, hands-on learning. This is partially in thanks to our tremendous industry partnerships with nationally recognized companies like Target, Thomson Reuters, Sony, and 3M.
But it's not just students who benefit here — for every dollar invested in UW-Stout, taxpayers receive $3.50 in economic contributions. An impact study commissioned in 2016 found that as a whole, our university contributes $271.8 million per year to the regional economy.
