Who We Are
Started in 1925 as one of the first operational components of the Wisconsin Idea, the School for Workers is the original university-based labor education program in the United States. Our faculty and staff are experts in their labor-related fields, and have long brought teaching, research, and service throughout Wisconsin, the nation and the world.
