- Philanthropist Michael Cudahy donated a building at 9100 N. Swan Road--which was once a think tank for Cudahy and Warren Cozzens' medical device company, Marquette Electronics--to the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
- UWM will use the Cozzens and Cudahy Research Center to provide a STEM pipeline to students of color, and the first group of 20 UWM undergrads to use the facility is participating in a federally funded mentoring program through the center.
- Eventually, the center will evolve into a place where students ranging from middle school to undergraduates receive hands-on learning, with the students mentored and taught by graduate students and faculty, and the graduate students mentored by faculty and corporate researchers.
