The mission of the Division of Student Life is: to cultivate, advance and interconnect the academic, professional, personal, and social development of students and to champion a respectful, globally engaged and diverse university community.

The University supplies information on crime prevention, procedures for reporting crime, resources for victims, and crime statistics to enhance the safety and security of everyone who visits, studies, or works on our campus.

This office also coordinates WiscAlerts, UW–Madison’s emergency notification system. The system is designed to provide information about an active emergency situation that requires the community to take immediate action in order to stay safe. For more information about or to sign up for WiscAlerts, follow this link.
