Unique Academic Programs

  • History - Civil Rights Pilgrimage is offered twice each year. We believe firmly that the college journey should also open hearts and minds to histories and experiences sometimes not fully appreciated by all. The Civil Rights Pilgrimage through UWEC is a unique opportunity to travel the path of the civil rights movement and walk through these pivotal places and stories in our history.
