OMSS UPDATE COVID-19

Based on UWL’s decision to close campus and go to an online class platform for the remainder of the semester, the Office of Multicultural Student Services will have no in-office staff until further notice and will not be accepting any face-to-face appointments or walk-ins. 

Our office building is locked to the public as of March 18. We are currently working on sending our students a message outlining ongoing support for the remainder of the semester. For updated campus information pertaining to COVID-19, please utilize UWL’s COVID-19 homepage. 

We will strive to provide the best service and advocacy to our students and families during this time. In lieu of phone calls, please send an email to omss@uwlax.edu with your questions or concerns. We appreciate your patience during this time. Thank you. 

In solidarity, 

OMSS Staff
