Growth at every age and stage
From children exploring STEM in precollege programs and Summer Term students taking courses to graduate on time to mid-career adults earning online degrees and seniors studying the humanities, we offer opportunities for all to thrive.
We also help UW–Madison staff flourish. We provide training and skill-building for employees across campus. We support the well-being of our DCS staff with regular pulse surveys, various cross-functional committees and community-building activities. DCS strives for a positive workplace culture where everyone can grow from where they are.
