The Education Deans of Greater Milwaukee is comprised of leadership from nine area institutions  of higher education.

Mission: EDGM leverages assets of our institutions to support the continuous improvement of PK-21 education in the region. To accomplish this mission, we also engage others who share our common goals.


Guiding Principles

  • A commitment to honest communication
  • To speak with one voice where we have a common position and a common need
  • To view issues from multiple perspectives
  • To respect differences, distinctive programs and needs of individual institutions/ organizations while appreciating that our mutual work is broad and offers greater impact than any individual effort
  • To serve metropolitan Milwaukee learners of all types and ages
  • To use a team approach to problem solving and decisions about initiatives or public statements
  • To use our shared knowledge, investment and accountability practices to drive positive outcomes in PK-12 schooling, drawing on and enhancing the strengths of each institution
  • To recognize that all members of EDGM and partners bring issues that are relevant to the entire group in that they may be the impetus for new public statements or initiatives
