  • Advising prospective students, parents, school counselors, community and government agencies, and others seeking information on higher education
  • Sharing expertise about UW System schools at college and career fairs, school presentations, workshops, and conferences
  • Providing a unique, System-wide perspective to educational decision makers
  • Coordinating and integrating services for UW System campuses and their students
