Where the Wisconsin Idea Happens.

PEOPLE is a pre-college pipeline for students of color and low-income students, most of whom are the first in their families to potentially attend college. Their journey prepares them to apply, be successfully admitted and enroll at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. PEOPLE accepts highly motivated students into a rigorous program to build study skills, explore and strengthen academic and career interests, and gain a positive experience on a world-class campus.

PEOPLE (Pre–College Enrichment Opportunity Program for Learning Excellence) is the UW's most successful venture in creating such opportunities and thereby improving campus diversity.
