Mission, Vision and Values

What matters most in the Student Life Office is student success.

The University of Wisconsin—La Crosse is committed to its belief in mens corpusque (“mind and body”) and seeks to provide a student-centered education in environments that are safe, diverse, equitable, inclusive and engaging. Our purpose in the Student Life Office (SLO) is to support and encourage students’ growth and well-being in ways that enable them to thrive. We strive to empower students to share responsibility in the learning process and to create a positive learning community. Our vision is that students will participate actively in this process, unlimited by ability, culture, gender, race, sexuality, religion or socio-economic barriers. We imagine students becoming self-determined individuals and well-informed citizens who are caring and compassionate for others and themselves.

The SLO challenges students through individual and group interventions, and we support them by offering innovative programs and opportunities. Our outreach includes wellness programming, alcohol and drug education, policy and safety awareness, violence prevention, and other activities that support student transitions to and through the university. We recognize that collaboration is important to students' success and we aim to work closely with faculty, staff, and families to ensure our work is mindful, supportive and current.
