2009-2010 ACCOMPLISHMENTS:
Activity: Performance of ATP (Awareness Through Performance) at the All-Sports Meeting that all student-athletes and staff attended in the fall.
Result: The feedback from students and staff was that it was the best and most appropriate programming that we have conducted in the past few years.
Activity: Attendance at the White Privilege Conference. The Athletic Program purchase a pass for the conference and permitted as many staff members to attend as could attend during the three day conference.
Result: Several staff members did take advantage of the opportunity to attend the conference who would not have done so without the admission fee paid for them.
Activity: Coaches have continued to recruit students from diverse backgrounds
Result: This fall we also hope to have the first Canadian student of color attending UW-L and participating in intercollegiate athletics, and one student from Norway
