The Learning Integrated for New Knowledge (LINK) Program provides both academic and personal support to first-year students. Academic support is offered through a distinctive year-long experience. Students enroll in several courses as a group (or cohort), taking these classes together, and the content in these courses is integrated, such that strategies practiced in one course help students achieve success in other courses. Additionally, students attend a one-hour discussion section facilitated by a tutor, who assists them in understanding course content and strengthening course-related skills.
Personal support is offered through peer mentors. Students have the opportunity to be matched with an upper-class peer who serves as a mentor to them, providing them with information about resources, as well as personal support, as they learn how to navigate the UW-Parkside community.
