User-submitted facts and corrections:

  • The UW Colleges in Madison is an administrative office, not a campus. One of the 13 UW Colleges--The University of Wisconsin-Richland--is located IN Richland Center, is a major cultural and social, as well as educational center for the region and a major employer. See the campus website at www.richland.uwc.edu for details.
  • Two major educational sites are not listed because they are under 2000 enrollees. This is misleading, and they need to be added to this web site (perhaps eliminate the 2000-student qualifier). UW-Richland, one of the two-year colleges of the University of Wisconsin system, is located directly in Richland Center. Additionally, SWTC (Southwestern Wisconsin Technical College) is 35 miles south of Richland Center.
