UW System Fall Workshops for School Counselors

Each September, UW HELP puts together a series of free morning workshops for school counselors and other educators. Workshops are offered at eight Wisconsin locations, and in the Chicago and Twin Cities areas.

Each workshop includes a presentation by UW HELP, brief updates from UW campus admissions officers, and an opportunity for questions. You may also pick up the latest UW HELP and campus-specific materials.

Workshop dates and registration information are announced in the ByLine newsletter. Workshops are free, but registration is required.

You may view the UW HELP presentation from the Fall 2014 workshops here.
