Visiting Scholar/Artist of Color Program
As part of UW-L’s vision that diversity is central to providing and retaining a quality learning environment and sense of world community at the University, UW-L endeavors to bring four or more scholars/artists of color to campus a year. The purpose of a larger number of shorter visits (rather than semester-long programs) serves to increase the program's visibility on campus and increase the potential representation of individuals across the university.
Members of the academic staff of UW-L may nominate individuals to visit campus during the academic year. A primary goal is significant interaction with students, faculty and staff by the visiting scholar/artist. Travel costs and honoraria may be requested in the grant application (see below).
Fall Semester – second Monday in July to your college Dean/Division Head.
Spring Semester or Summer Session – first Monday in December to your college Dean/Division Head
