The Community Outreach and Assistance for Student Tenants (COAST) program provides UWM students living off-campus with information about resources available to them and helps them improve communication between students and long-term residents.
The COAST program at UWM originated in the fall of 2008 with its pilot program beginning spring 2008 with six COAST Leaders in the community. Based on it's many successes the program has now doubled in size from six to twelve COAST leaders for the 2008-09 school year and to fourteen for the 2010-2011 year. In 2011, we added additional COAST Blocks of 3200-3500 N. Oakland. For the 2012-2013 year we have hired 5 new COAST leaders and expect to add to our great team of student leaders in the near future!
