UW-Marathon County has been awarded the 2014 Program Achievement Award for their outstanding contributions toward creating a more diverse and inclusive campus climate. The Program Achievement Award, sponsored by OSER’s Wisconsin State Council on Affirmative Action (SCAA), recognizes “exceptional efforts” in recruiting and retaining diverse students, faculty, and staff. The SCAA applauds Marathon County for “its initiative to create a safe gathering place for students, develop co-curricular programs that increase awareness of campus diversity and multicultural issues, advocate for policies and practices that create an inclusive campus climate and assist the campus in reducing barriers to higher education for underrepresented student populations.”

Representatives from UW-Marathon County will be honored at an awards ceremony at the state Capitol on Thursday, October 23.
