Advising across the College Career

Our mission

The UW-La Crosse Academic Advising Center is committed to providing all students with developmental academic advising grounded in teaching and based on valuing a liberal arts education.  Through this process students will ideally develop the skills and self-knowledge to be adaptable, accountable & lifelong learners.  This results in the ability to set personal goals and to make intelligent educational, career, and life choices to achieve those goals.
