Falcon Promise

The Falcon Promise is a differential tuition initiative that invest student funds in four areas of importance to students and to the success of UW-River Falls. These initiatives are: 

  • Tutoring
  • Undergraduate Research Opportunities
  • Increased Student Scholarships: The Falcon Scholars Challenge
  • Enhanced Learning Spaces

The Falcon Promise is a partnership between students and the University. The goal of The Falcon Promise is to increase student retention and success, especially for first-generation students and students having significant financial need, and to enhance the learning environment at UW-River Falls.

The Falcon Promise supports the University's six core institutional values of student centered, academic excellence, inclusiveness, innovation, global engagement, and integrity. Living up to these core values presents a direct challenge for our students, faculty, and staff. The Falcon Promise is a commitment to providing members of our campus community an opportunity to meet this challenge and in turn achieve their full potential.

The Falcon Promise was approved by Student Senate on 1/25/11 by an 18-1 vote.
