In the Quest for Excellence
UW-Stout is proud to be the first-ever higher education recipient of the Malcolm Baldrige Award.
In 2001, President George W. Bush visited campus to bestow this honor. During his speech, he said, "An organization needs a good idea and a good product or a good service. It certainly needs a good strategic plan. But more than anything, it needs good people -- men and women of integrity, who understand their duties to each other and to the public interest."
UW-Stout was specifically praised for our achievements in these important areas:
- Strategic planning
- Information and analysis
- Faculty and staff focus
- Process management
- Organizational performance results
We are proud to continue our pursuit of institutional excellence year after year in the spirit of Malcolm Baldrige.
