The University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, located at the center of the state, offers more than 100 undergraduate programs, 13 graduate programs and several cooperative and collaborative degree programs with other UW System institutions. With an enrollment of 9,300 students and a 20:1 student faculty ratio, many undergraduate research and leadership opportunities are available. It is known for its College of Natural Resources, biology department and professionally accredited arts, health science and liberal arts programs. Construction of a new state-of-the-art biology and chemistry building will begin in fall 2015.

UW-Stevens Point is also recognized nationally for its sustainability efforts. At the Wisconsin Institute for Sustainable Technology on campus, students and faculty offer sustainable solutions and economic development for business and industry. The institute provides product innovation support for the paper industry through a pilot paper machine, paper testing equipment and pilot coating and laminating line. A fermentation lab, chemical analysis facilities and a pilot cellulose processing facility add to the institute’s research capabilities for the agriculture and forest products industries.
