Description of College/Department/Program/Division/Unit

The primary role of the Division of Diversity and Inclusion is to ensure that diversity, in its many forms, is understood, respected, and valued. The Division advocates for access, equity and inclusion while encouraging critical dialogue, thinking, and meaningful educational interactions on campus and in the community. The Division includes the following departments: Campus Climate, ACCESS Center, Diversity and Inclusion, Multicultural Student Services, Pride Center, Student Support Services, and Upward Bound.

Upward Bound is housed under the Division of Diversity & Inclusion. The Upward Bound (UB) program at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse is a federally-funded TRiO program dedicated to the preparation for, admission to, and successful completion of a college degree for eligible (first-generation and/or low-income) high school students with weekly tutoring; semester programming covering test prep and/or test anxiety, advocacy and being resourceful, college and career exploration, development in leadership, study, and work skills and more; academic, personal, and career advising; college visits; and a summer residential program which allows students to get a close to a college experience as possible and job shadows and much, much more. With the guidance and support from our staff and tutors we work closely with students to ensure they are on track for high school graduation as well as being prepared for college. UB students are four times more likely to graduate from college than their peers from similar background.
