Statement of Philosophy
The Jane Bradley Pettit Foundation Life Impact Program has been established to assist disadvantaged students with children in achieving their academic goals at UW-Milwaukee. The program provides extensive services specifically designed to meet the unique needs of its participants. All participants are assessed by program staff on a regular basis and provided personal support, along with resources and referrals, for which the participant is expected to follow-through on.
Program activities are developed to provide participants with the opportunity to grow personally, professionally and academically. The activities are meant to increase the participants' chances to complete their undergraduate degree at UWM and either find family-sustaining employment after graduation or pursue an advanced degree. The Life Impact Programs' success depends, in part, on the participants' commitment to these efforts as well as the goals of the program, which are:
To fully implement the intentions of the program as stated above, participants must be committed to this philosophy and be open and willing to program staff involvement, support and recommendations. Participants must be willing contributors in this process and be dedicated to their overall success. It is imperative that participants understand that the Life Impact Program is more than just a scholarship. Life Impact is a program that requires commitment, responsibility and collaboration. Life Impact also represents an opportunity for participants to develop a support network of other student parents and to become part of the growing student parent community at UWM.
