|School mission and unique qualities (as provided by the school):|
The University of Wisconsin-Stout is a recognized leader in educational innovation and the only UW System institution (and only one of about 175 schools nationwide) to provide a laptop computer to all undergraduate students. We are one of the few schools to adopt effective assessment tools for the program. As a wireless and wired campus, 90 percent of our classrooms are modern, mediated learning centers, and we are committed to using modern technology for all education and business functions. Lab-based experiences are provided for the majority of students in all programs. UW-Stout was officially designated Wisconsin's Polytechnic University by the Board of Regents in March 2007. This initiative is simply the natural outgrowth of our historic tradition. The designation guides UW-Stout when adding degree programs; it elevates the already excellent reputation the university has with business and industry; it increases national recognition which means more opportunities for research and partnerships with business and industry; and it builds on UW-Stout's already exceptional placement rate providing excellent co-op, internship and job opportunities.
