Founded in 1909, UW-L is one of 11, four-year institutions in the 
University of Wisconsin System with approximately 9,000 students. 
UW-L offers a wide array of undergraduate programs and a variety 
of graduate programs in three colleges:  Liberal Studies 
(including the Schools of Education and Arts & Communication); 
Science and Health; and Business Administration.  The university 
is consistently rated first among the UW System comprehensives in 
terms of first year student ACT scores, class rankings and 
retention rates.

We are an inclusive learning community that values the varying 
perspectives that come with diverse faculty, staff and student 
populations.  We strongly encourage our students to broaden their 
perspectives through international experiences and 
diversity-related courses and programming, and support faculty 
and staff in international teaching, research, and service.

We are proud of our diversity and believe students, faculty, and 
staff all are enriched by our exposure to differing ideas, 
opinions and cultures.  We strive to be a leader in Wisconsin's 
movement toward increased diversity and inclusiveness.  For 
example, we routinely assess the campus climate and have 
conducted an equity study to explore how diverse students, 
faculty, and staff experience UW-L.  We believe that employees 
from diverse backgrounds are critical to achieving excellence as 
a nationally recognized institution of higher education.  We seek 
to recruit, develop, and retain the most talented people from a 
diverse candidate pool.  We strongly encourage applications from 
persons with diverse backgrounds and experiences.

The city of La Crosse combines the scenic beauty of the 
Mississippi River and towering bluffs with a diversified economy 
and educated populace.  Three colleges, two world-class medical 
institutions, the La Crosse Symphony Orchestra, a restored 
nineteenth century downtown business district, and a number of 
galleries and art centers have made La Crosse a regional center 
for culture, entertainment, medical care, shopping, sports and 
four season recreation.
