"This year's number of graduates is fantastic and gives testimony that we are on track as a campus to achieve the goal of increasing the number of students who begin their higher education academic careers with us to the point of degree completion," said UW-Waukesha Dean/CEO Harry Muir. "It also shows that our faculty and staff are doing everything they can to help our students achieve their personal, career and academic goals."
