Nuestro Mundo Dual-Language School in Madison

In an exciting new partnership, UW-Whitewater's Bilingual Education Program and Madison's Nuestro Mundo Dual-Language Elementary School are teaming up!  Through this partnership, Nuestro Mundo students, families, and staff have easy access to university resources; and, UW-Whitewater Bilingual & ESL licensure candidates have the opportunity to learn from this cutting-edge, highly effective form of Bilingual Education through field study, student teaching placements, and course assignments. 

While this partnership is brand-new and is still growing, we do have exciting initiatives in place.  For example:

  • Required work at Nuestro Mundo.  If you will be licensed in Bilingual Education through UW-Whitewater and speak Spanish, you will participate in some type of field-work at Nuestro Mundo. The details of this will be explained to you as you progress through the program.
  • LLAVE (Latinos Logrando Altas Visiones Educativas) Saturday program for Nuestro Mundo families.  In collaboration with the Office of Pre-College Programs, we have created a program geared toward increasing college access for Latino students as well as increasing diversity here at UW-Whitewater.  For more information, contact Professor Minikel-Lacocque.
