Pathway for Success


At the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, the academic success of our students is a number one priority. The Pathway for Success program demonstrates UW-Whitewater's commitment of ensuring the academic success of students by providing additional support and assistance during the critical first year of their degree program.

Students will find faculty and staff devoted to assisting them in making the most of their learning experience including establishing a strong academic base. The program provides cohesive and supportive services that help students transition into the university environment, develop self-responsibility and encourage motivation for learning all while students establish their individual educational goals.

Students will be advised by Pathway for Success advisors in the Academic Advising & Exploration Center (AAEC) for two semesters. The Pathway for Success advisors will support and challenge students by utilizing proactive advising strategies and intentionally targeted advising contacts at key points of the academic year. Students will interact with their Pathway for Success advisors through individual meetings, classroom presentations, group meetings, and Pathway for Success sponsored events.
