The River Studies Center (RSC), created in 1972, is a non-curricular unit focusing on research and informational programs pertinent to the Upper Mississippi River and its related resources. These activities are performed in the spirit and letter of the Select Mission of the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse that states "The University shall support studies related to the environment, culture, heritage, institutions and economy of La Crosse and the surrounding Upper Mississippi Valley region." During the past 42 years, the RSC has expanded its research program to other aquatic resources, including rivers, streams, lakes, and wetlands across Wisconsin, the Upper Midwest, and the Nation.
