The Roberto Hernandez Center (RHC) is committed to supporting Latinx students through graduation and will be hosting our annual UWM Bienvenida: New Latinx Student Welcome event on Thursday, August 3rd at 12pm.

Students should arrive before start time and plan to stay until at least through 4:30 pm. Full agenda of activities. This is not a drop-in event.

At this event you will:

  • Meet the RHC Staff & other UWM campus partners and resources.
  • Learn important information from RHC Success Coaches
  • Network and build community with other new incoming Latinx students.
  • Hear from and connect with current Latinx students and other Latinx professionals at UWM.

All students who attend will get a free ‘Yo Soy UWM’ t-shirt! 

​​We also recommend that you bring up to two guests with you to Bienvenida. Your guests should be your parents/guardians, or anyone who will be a strong support to you during your time in college; they will get their own unique experience.

NOTE: The Bienvenida event is separate from New Student Orientation (NSO) and Transfer & Adult Student Orientation (TASO). You must also attend/complete NSO/TASO before you can enroll in classes at UWM. Bienvenida is open to any NEW and Re-Entry Latinx student who is taking classes in Fall 2023 at the Milwaukee Campus. 

If you have any further questions, please email the RHC at rhc@uwm.edu or call us at 414-229-6156.

We look forward to beginning this journey with you to help establish academic success and your eventual graduation from UWM.
