For nearly 50 years, Alverno's ability-based curriculum has been described as innovative and revolutionary. We believe the real benefit of knowledge is knowing how to apply it, which is why we integrate eight core abilities into our curriculum. The 8 Abilities are the foundation of the Alverno experience, and the students practice these essential skills throughout their educational journey, working toward mastery. Ultimately, the 8 Abilities are what give our students and alums the power to stand apart from the crowd and to succeed both personally and professionally.
Alverno is deeply rooted in the Milwaukee community it calls home. It carries the distinction of being Wisconsin's first Hispanic-Serving Institution. We are committed to a diverse and inclusive environment where differences of all kinds are celebrated and embraced.
