About Us

Orientation is shown to enhance student success and to make the transition of starting at an institution of higher education easier. We employ several national best practices at our programs that make them exceptional. Our staff members utilize NODA, The Association for Orientation, Transition and Retention to make sure that we are up to date on everything related to Orientation and Transition programming.

Student Orientation is managed by the UWM Student Success Center. The Student Success Center is dedicated to creating opportunities for all UW-Milwaukee first-year, transfer and returning adult students and families to successfully transition into an inclusive and vibrant community. The SSC places a high value on connections with other students, faculty and staff to enhance each student’s personal and academic success. The SSC will also lead efforts to create a campus climate in which students persist to the second year and on to graduation.
