    Our Mission

    To serve low-income and ethnic individuals, families and communities while assisting youth to be successful within their schools and their lives.

    The Pre-college Programs, sponsored by the Office of Multicultural Student Services, are committed to supporting ethnic communities and low-income families in the La Crosse area and around the state. University students and staff members serve as role models and mentors for the youth and as liaisons to the communities within which the Pre-College participants reside.
