The Program Coordinator is a key member of both programs and works collaboratively in providing leadership, programmatic and organizational direction, and support students taking part in both programs.

The Multicultural Learning Community (MLC) is a residential based community comprised of 54 undergraduate students who work towards being able to:
- Examine their own beliefs, ideas, behaviors and involvement in issues
- Discuss the intersections among aspects of identity and systems of oppression
- Identify the dynamics of power relations and the associated material effects

Students participate in a seminar class and a variety of social, educational, and academically focused programs in the community. This culturally diverse community is made up of primarily first year students who live in Beale House on the second floor of Witte Hall.

The Summer Collegiate Experience is intended to build academic and learning skills for incoming first-year UW-Madison students that lead to academic success and retention. The summer program will accelerate adjustment to the university environment by providing a spectrum of educational experiences that include orientation, instruction, tutorial assistance, and on-campus residential living. Additionally, it will establish and nurture a culture of excellence and create a sense of community and peer networking among the participants.
