School for Workers

Started in 1925 as one of the first operational components of the Wisconsin Idea, the School for Workers is the original university-based labor education program in the United States. Our faculty and staff are experts in their labor-related fields, and have long brought teaching, research, and service throughout Wisconsin, the nation and the world.

What We Do

School for Workers is committed to a just and equitable society rooted in economic democracy, in which all workers have a meaningful impact in their workplaces and communities. Through teaching, research, and service, the school continues as a catalyst of labor rights through advancing the empowerment of working people, labor organizations, and community partners.
