At UWEC, you will be welcomed, embraced and celebrated for who you are. You will know compassion and experience kindness. You can expect professors and mentors to walk alongside you, teaching through failures and celebrating through victories. They go above and beyond to ensure your success, connecting you with opportunities that are right for you and the career path you have chosen.
Here, you are not confined to one interest but encouraged to explore many. You will run toward the path less traveled. And you will be called to adventure in many ways: research, study abroad, student organizations, coursework and more. While some are more challenging than others, the environment here allows you to feel safe because we view taking a risk as an opportunity to learn, grow and succeed.
