CAMPUS AND COMMUNITY: UW-Richland is located on a 136 acre property in the Driftless Area of Wisconsin. The campus is located 60 miles west of Madison, the capital city. The setting includes a trout stream and the campus facilities consist of seven buildings, six of which were designed in the Frank Lloyd Wright style by an architectural firm in Spring Green, Wisconsin. A distinguishing feature is the copper roofs. Richland County has a 100-year tradition of higher education. Before UW-Richland opened in 1967, the County Teachers College existed for sixty years. As a result, the community and the county look to UW-Richland for higher education, continuing education, and cultural events. The campus has 30 years of experience educating international students and currently has 49 international students from 13 countries and territories. 6% of the student population is African American. Like two other UW-College campuses, UW-Richland houses the UW-Extension division of Cooperative Extension's Richland County office.
