UW-River Falls

University of Wisconsin-River Falls is located in St. Croix County—the fastest growing county in Wisconsin—just twenty-five miles from Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota. This unique western Wisconsin location is a budding source for research and technology, benefitting not only the local community, but also the Midwest region and beyond.

UW-River Falls enrolls approximately 6,100 students in 60 major programs within four distinct colleges. The four colleges, include: Agriculture, Food and Environmental Sciences; Business and Economics; Arts and Sciences; and Education and Professional Studies.

In addition to our existing esteemed science programs, UW-River Falls will offer the following new programs: a master of science in computer science, a bachelor of science in criminology, a bachelor of science in data science and a bachelor of science in agricultural engineering.

In 2014, UW-River Falls launched a Center for Innovation and Business Development, which is dedicated to supporting economic growth and development throughout the greater St. Croix Valley. Additionally, our on-campus facilities boast two laboratory farms and a dairy learning center, all of which provide hands-on learning and research opportunities for students and business partners alike.

U.S. News and World Report and the Princeton Review have consecutively named UW-River Falls a Best Regional University. Academic excellence and research have been, and will continue to be, a priority for UW-River Falls as we aspire to become a national leader in undergraduate and collaborative research, scholarship and creative activity. It is our belief that faculty-led research on-campus and across the globe will prepare our students for life-long success.
