The Student Success Center houses three important programs within the Diversity and College Access Department:
The Noel Compass Scholarship (NCS) is a privately funded scholarship established to encourage and reward academic achievement, leadership, and citizenship for students of color from Wisconsin high schools attending UW-Stevens Point (UWSP).
The Fostering Success Program is designed to provide support for students who have previously experienced out-of-home placement. This includes experience with foster care, kinship care, legal guardianship, group home placement, homelessness, ward of the court, or being an orphan. Students in this program are eligible to attend our LEAD Summer Bridge Program before the their first year at UW-Stevens Point and will have access to special academic year programming.

LEAD is a summer bridge program that is focused on increasing first-year undergraduate students’ sense of belonging at UWSP. The program is aimed at providing a supportive community that promotes student success by getting first-year undergraduate students ahead and ready to start their college careers. It focusses on campus resources, transitioning into college, student success skills, social and enrichment activities, and the development of future campus leaders.
