Community Classes

Community classes come to you online or throughout Wisconsin in partnership with community groups and agencies to reflect the unique needs of the area. These programs are open to all students who wish to study the course topics and expand their knowledge about the world of work.

In concordance with the UW–Madison campus decision and to best support our community, School for Workers faculty and staff are participating in social distancing. We are still available to you remotely and are actively continuing our mission with online sessions. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us during this time.
