Parent Fund

Parents as Partners @UWL
The University of Wisconsin-La Crosse acknowledges the role and importance of parents and guardians in the success of our students. We are committed to recognizing and responding to the concerns and suggestions of parents or guardians by:

  • sharing student information with parents and guardians to the extent permitted by UWL policy, Federal and State law
  • communicating opportunities about student learning, student development, university processes and resources
  • listening and hearing various perspectives from parents and guardians

By contributing to the UWL Parent Fund, you are providing students with meaningful, transformational opportunities to enrich their experience at UWL by allowing them to explore, engage and succeed.

UWL Parents, who serve on the Parent Advisory Board, advise the Vice-Chancellor for Student Affairs where to direct contributions made by parents to the UWL Parent Fund.
