Welcome to PEOPLE!    

This site is designed for parents, teachers, students, supporters and others interested in PEOPLE (Pre-College Enrichment Opportunity Program for Learning Excellence) administered by the Division of Diversity, Equity and Educational Achievement.

Our mission is to help students successfully make each transition from middle school to high school and from high school to college. Approximately 1,300 students currently participate in the PEOPLE Program ranging from second grade through undergraduate college level. We began in 1999 with 66 eager ninth-graders from Milwaukee public high schools who are now completing college degrees and entering the workforce. The PEOPLE Program has admitted 359 students
to the UW–Madison under our scholarship program

The success of the program may be attributed to our dedicated K-12 education partners, to our supportive parents, to a solid foundation provided by the university and private donors and, most importantly, to the persistent need for such programming in the state of Wisconsin. Together, we are making college accessible to more students of color and/or those from low-income families.

Thank you for visiting. Please check back for updates.
