Sholar Sip Archive

The Scholar Sip Lecture Series was the brainchild of former UW Washington County Library Director, Marc Boucher and started in the Fall of 2008. After a few fits and starts, the series rebooted fully in the fall of 2022. The mission of the series is to share the interesting research of the UWM WC campus with both the UWM College of General Studies and the broader Washington County community. Anyone interested in participating in the series is encouraged to contact the Library at 262-335-5206 or by email at
