The Roberto Hernández Center is committed to ensuring the success of Latino students at UWM. The Center’s bilingual academic advisors/coaches assist students and their parents with navigating the university environment in a manner that is professional, friendly and culturally sensitive.

Students are encouraged to meet with their advisors early and often for help selecting classes, fulfilling requirements, complying with policies and procedures and more. Advisors are available by appointment during regular business hours: Monday through Friday, 8:30am to 4:30pm. Please call our main desk to schedule an appointment at (414) 229-6156.
