At UW-Stout we open our doors and services to the community to provide diverse opportunities to connect and grow.

We host area middle and high school students at our Summer STEAM Experience. Our Stout Adventures outdoor recreation program is open to the community year round.

Professional Education

UW-Stout Professional Education provides lifelong learners with access to education and enrichment resources.

Our Professional Education events and workshops feature prominent artists and speakers from around the world. Recently UW-Stout and the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction collaborated to host the Family & Consumer Sciences Education & WI DPI Child Care Conference.

Memorial Student Center

University of Wisconsin-Stout is northwestern Wisconsin's premier location to host your next event or conference.

Our conference facilities and catering services are available to the public for corporate conferences, weddings and family reunions. Our catering services will work with you to provide off-campus dining for a special event. We can even help you effectively manage your local, regional, and national events.

We value the relationships forged as we welcome the community to Wisconsin's Polytechnic University. Are you ready to connect with UW-Stout?
