Description of initiative
The PEOPLE College Program is a unit within the Pre-college Enrichment Opportunity Program for Learning Excellence (PEOPLE). The College Scholar team consists of the Assistant Director, two College Advisors and two Teaching Assistants. The College Program works with PEOPLE students who have successfully completed the Pre-college component of PEOPLE and have been admitted to UW-Madison. Once they matriculate to UW-Madison, the students receive a four-year tuition only scholarship and are referred to as College Scholars or PEOPLE Scholars. The College Advisors provide holistic and academic advising, referral services, student leadership and post-graduation development for the College Scholars. They also provide support for Transfer students. The Teaching Assistants teach two courses throughout the academic year; the First Year Experience course (Fall term) and Careers/Major Course (Spring term), and also provide advising support for the students in their courses.
Registered Student Organizations (RSO) are groups or associations that are operated by students at UW-Madison who are registered with the Center for Leadership and Involvement
Initiative is not on behalf of a RSO.
