Community Comes First at Herzing University

Herzing University prioritizes community outreach across its regional locations. This includes its Wisconsin campuses in Milwaukee/Brookfield, Madison, and Kenosha.

Recently, Herzing has highlighted this community-wide outreach through grant-funded partnerships, new service programs, and community learning events.

 Through a $50,000 grant from the Advancing a Healthier Wisconsin Endowment, Herzing University and partners from the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee and the Medical College of Wisconsin have begun to develop and oversee a comprehensive health and wellness program to help address critical aspects of youth development.

Another partnership is the HU Cupboard, a free resource created to address food insecurity among Herzing students. The Cupboard has been available at the Kenosha campus since February 1. It is stocked with essential items, including high-protein snacks, canned vegetables, oatmeal, pasta, and soup. Students are encouraged to take what they need and leave what they can. The HU Cupboard is made possible through a generous $3,000 Swipe Out Hunger Grant, a nonprofit benefiting college campuses nationwide.

Herzing also is continuing its well-received effort to bring information and awareness to local communities regarding a broad variety of critical issues.

In 2023, thought-leadership events included training to combat opioid overdose using Naloxone (NARCAN), identifying victims and perpetrators of human trafficking across Wisconsin, empowering survivors of sexual assault, and promoting greater inclusivity of the Kenosha-area neurodivergent population.

“The continued work that our Wisconsin-area campuses are doing to serve all parts of the community is remarkable,” said Jeff Hill, president of Herzing’s Wisconsin and Minnesota-based campuses. “It’s a true testament to the hearts and minds of our students, faculty, and community partners.”
