Pre-College and Youth Programs

Director Millie Wenzel meets with UWM at Waukesha students

Due to our work with youth in the community, all visitors and staff in the Diversity and Pre College Center are required to wear a mask per UW System policies.

The Diversity and Pre College Center offers two, three week long summer camps for middle and high school students. At both our College Bound Camp (students entering 9th-12th grade) and University Camp (students entering 6th-8th grade), students will continue to learn more about college options and participate in original workshops that allow our students to explore new fields of studies. Some workshops we are particularly excited about this year include STEM, dance, and more! Download your application today.
