Early Start Community of Practice

The Early Start Community of Practice serves anyone at UW–Madison who works with a program that offers a summer experience for incoming admitted UW–Madison students. Anyone who supports incoming students over the summer or is interested in learning more about early start opportunities is also welcome to join.

We meet virtually from 11 a.m.–noon on the 2nd Friday of each month. Topics are determined by the group but can include event ideas, marketing tactics, assessment, student staff hiring and training or any other aspect of summer program planning and implementation.

If you are interested in joining the Early Start Community of Practice or would like to learn more about the group, please reach out to Tracy Spraetz at tracy.spraetz@wisc.edu.
