Boxes & Walls

University Housing is pleased to announce that Boxes & Walls 2021, the Virtual Oppression Experience will be available on Canvas starting on Monday, October 18. Members of the campus community, including students, can self-enroll through this link:

If you are not familiar with Boxes and Walls; it is an interactive diversity experience that was created for our students and the entire UW-W community. The name of the program fits the purpose of the experience, which is to think outside of the box by throwing away stereotypes and tearing down walls of oppression.

This year, we will be showcasing Black, LGBTQA+, Mental Health, and Intersectionality experiences. Each experience will be designed to allow participants to feel and/or sense what life is like from these various diverse perspectives. The power of this program is realized when the participants feel the oppression that many of our students live through on a daily basis.

If faculty would like to use this opportunity as part of your course, please complete this google form in order to request access to track student attendance.

If you have any questions about the program, please email Terry Tumbarello at
