Daily Bread for 9.23.22: Preliminary Fall 2022 UW System Enrollment Figures

Good morning.

Friday in Whitewater will be partly cloudy with high of 63. Sunrise is 6:44 AM and sunset 6:49 PM for 12h 05m 10s of daytime. The moon is a waning crescent with 5.1% of its visible disk illuminated.

  On this day in 1779, during the American Revolution, John Paul Jones, naval commander of the United States, on board the USS Bonhomme Richard, wins the Battle of Flamborough Head.

There are 2022 preliminary — first day autumn enrollment — figures out for the UW System. Kelly Meyerhofer reports Enrollment dips at most UW campuses, but UW System president thinks campuses ‘have turned a corner’ on COVID-19

The ongoing enrollment decline at Wisconsin’s public universities continues this school year, with preliminary numbers released Thursday showing more than half of the University of Wisconsin System campuses down by 3% or more.

Large enrollment drops drain millions in tuition revenue from campus budgets, challenging the schools to make up for demographic shifts and a slide in the state’s college-going rate in other ways.


Here are the enrollment increases or decreases by campus as collected by the UW System based on the first day of classes. Because the data is preliminary, the percentages could change. Branch campuses are included in overall percentages.

  • UW-Madison: +5%
  • UW-Superior: +4%
  • UW-Green Bay: +3%
  • UW-La Crosse: 0%
  • UW-Milwaukee: -3%
  • UW-Parkside: -3%
  • UW-Stevens Point: -3%
  • UW-Whitewater: -4%
  • UW-Platteville: -5%
  • UW-River Falls: -5%
  • UW-Eau Claire: -5%
  • UW-Oshkosh: -6%
  • UW-Stout: -6%

Two obvious points: these are first day numbers (not the tenth day where the adding and dropping of registrations would be considered) and these numbers show both main campuses and their satellite schools as one percentage of increase or decrease.
