Advising & Success Coaching

The Roberto Hernández Center is committed to ensuring the success of Latinx students at UWM. The Center’s bilingual Multicultural Academic Success Coordinators (MSSC) assist students and their parents with navigating the university environment in a manner that is professional, friendly and culturally sensitive.
