Position Type Non-Teaching Academic Staff Appointment Type Fixed Term/Project, Non-Teaching FLSA Status Exempt Percent 100 Posting Type Staff Introduction (Description of School/College/Dept/Program)

The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM) is one of the nation’s top 130 research universities as recognized by the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education.

The Office of Research (OOR) facilitates the creation of new knowledge and the development of innovative solutions by supporting research across the sciences, arts, and humanities that enhances the mission of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and spurs economic growth.

OOR, and its staff, are responsible for central research administration, oversight of research policy and compliance, and internal research development programs. The Office is part of Academic Affairs, and includes the Office of Sponsored Programs, the Office of Undergraduate Research, as well as several research centers.

The Center for Urban Population Health (CUPH) was founded in 2001, more than 18 years ago. Its founding leadership understood their unique opportunity to join health care and the multiple discipline expertise that exists within their institutions and chartered the Center for Urban Population Health. Fifteen years later, much has changed within the public and population health landscape but Aurora Health Care, UW School of Medicine and Public Health and UW-Milwaukee have recommitted to each other, the Center and the community because of the same unique opportunity that remains today.

In reflecting on the past history of research, education, and service related projects that the Center has partnered in, we have found three key elements remain core to our population health approach. The three key elements found in every project are that they are data driven, based in evidence and engage the community or patients. Of course, we partner with government, community-based and health care organizations and students to accomplish our shared work.
