The Division of Student Affairs' role is to enhance and support students learning experience here at UW-L.  We work closely with faculty, staff, community members, alumni and most importantly, students to provide quality programs and services which promote learning, leadership, involvement, service and the celebration of diversity. The Division includes a number of departments which includes: Campus Climate & Diversity (Campus Climate, Disability Resource Services, Multicultural Student Services, Student Support Services, and Upward Bound) Child Care Center, Counseling and Testing, Student Health Center, Intercollegiate Athletics, Recreational Sports, Residence Life, Student Life, University Centers, and the Vice Chancellor & Dean of Students office.  The staff of the Division is truly student-centered and concerned about the holistic development of the student.  I encourage all students to get involved in their education, both in and outside of the classroom, and make the most of their experience at UW-L.  Please know that the staff and myself are here to assist you and do not hesitate to contact us.
