UW-Superior is a four-year university that fosters intellectual growth and career preparation within a liberal arts tradition that emphasizes individual attention and embodies respect for diverse cultures and multiple voices. We do that by focusing on our strengths: small classes, one-on-one contact with professors, an emphasis on active learning, and a supportive environment. The university is one of 13 comprehensive universities in the University of Wisconsin System and it shares in the UW System mission.
Superior offers the convenience of city living and the year-round recreational opportunities of the Northland.
Located in the northwest corner of Wisconsin, Superior overlooks the western tip of Lake Superior. This historic city of 27,000 remains an important Great Lakes port and transportation hub while also providing jobs in manufacturing, retail and education. The city combines with neighboring Duluth, Minnesota, to provide a rich metro setting with live entertainment and shopping as well as numerous opportunities for internships and jobs. Yet, it's just a short drive from fishing, hiking, skiing, snowmobiling and other outdoor activities.
