Diversity in CALS

UW Madison College of Agricultural and Life Sciences Diversity Program

The world is an ever changing place, and there is a need in our society to recognize and embrace the concept that this generation of students represents the faces of the future. In The College of Agricultural and Life Sciences, we strive to be a leader in preparing our students to be culturally and globally competent by fostering a climate centered on quality educational and social experiences.

CALS recognizes these “faces of the future” will embody the growing ethnic and cultural diversity in our society, and we welcome the opportunity of serving students from many different backgrounds.

This effort includes:

  • Promoting awareness and understanding of diversity issues within the College and the University through enhanced dialogue and literature review and presentation.
  • Articulating the benefits to the College and the University of having a representative student body, and how the sharing of ideas and information a culturally rich and stimulating environment.
  • Assisting students through resources such as career and academic advising, with personal attention from a dedicated staff.

Diversity Programs provides a menu of key information for students to learn about high impact practices and ways to get connected on campus. To learn more about activities and programs related to diversity and inclusion in CALS, please contact Senior Assistant Dean Thomas Browne.
