University of Wisconsin-Platteville THE UNIVERSITY The University of Wisconsin-Platteville is one of 13 publicly supported comprehensive universities in the UW System. Founded in 1866, UW-Platteville is the oldest public institution in the state of Wisconsin, and is considered one of the safest campuses in the nation. We are proud of our students’ contribution to the safety record, their pursuit of academic excellence and the leadership they continually demonstrate throughout the state, region and nation. As our nickname implies, our UW-Platteville “Pioneers” have created the very foundation for which we are known. Our leadership in the Colleges of Business, Industry, Life Science and Agriculture; Engineering, Mathematics and Science; and Liberal Arts and Education helps students build on the foundation of strong values, commitment to excellence, leadership for a stronger world and a knowledge of technology which prepares them for life in the 21st century.
TRI-STATE INITIATIVE In 2005, UW-Platteville created the Tri-State Initiative (TSI) to help college be more accessible and affordable for students from Illinois and Iowa.
