Partnering with Students to Make the Wisconsin Experience a Reality.

The Center for Academic Excellence in the College of Letters & Science promotes the values of a liberal arts education and finds new ways for students to make a difference locally, nationally, and globally by partnering with students to make the Wisconsin Experience a reality.

The Center serves first-generation, low-income, and multicultural underrepresented students within the College of Letters & Science. CAE fosters an inclusive teaching and learning environment that helps students reach their academic potential, attain undergraduate degrees, and realize their human promise as they become citizens of a global community.

Our vision is to provide an enriching community for our scholars, one that fosters engagement and lifelong learning.

Explore our website to learn more about the research-based CAE Model. Learn about academic tutoring opportunities, our peer mentor program, high-impact advising, and student leadership development.

Discover the ways that our students engage in the liberal arts and benefit from the richness of the College of Letters & Science, the largest academic unit on campus and the heart of this great institution.
