Welcome to the CSSPS (College of Social Sciences and Professional Studies) Descubre (Discover) Parkside page! On this page you will find examples of our previous Descubre Parkside events. To view this page in Spanish, please click here.
Our Descubre Parkside program seeks to partner with heavily populated dual-language schools to foster the idea that college is an achievable option for any student.
In the fall of 2016, Parkside's CSSPS partnered with two RUSD middle schools to bring interested students and their families in to visit UWP. We provided transportation, childcare, and lunch while parents/guardians and students participated in learning sessions designed to answer their questions about college. Visitors were given campus tours and the opportunity to question a student panel regarding life on campus, classes, housing, and the student experience.
In the spring of 2017, CSSPS partnered with KUSD to bring this same program to middle schoolers in Kenosha! We'd like Descubre Parkside to become an annual event for schools in our community.
Our next Descubre Parkside event will be held on Saturday, November 16th 2019!
