The Reaching At-Risk Students project is a venue for system-wide conversations about working with the broad spectrum of students entering higher education who are at risk for probation, suspension, or simply dropping out. We broadly define this category of students as: those who are academically underprepared, who struggle with mental health or AODA issues, multilingual students, low-income and first-generation college students, students with extra-academic responsibilities, students of color, LGBTQ-identified students, and other student populations who can be characterized as "at-risk."

This website will serve as an ongoing resource for faculty and staff across the state of Wisconsin who work with students who are at-risk of not succeeding academically. Please visit the "Resources" and "Bibliography" page for information about programs and offices at UW System institutions that serve at-risk student populations. If you know of a resource available at your institution or would like to submit information for inclusion on the website, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
