Muller to advise BAAS students


Joanna Muller, Hillsboro, beginning May 1 will serve University of Wisconsin-Richland students as the first bachelor’s degree advisor/coach, assisting students who pursue UW-Richland’s Bachelor of Applied Arts & Sciences (BAAS) degree.

In this 25% position, Muller will help students from their initial contact, advising them throughout their program. Another aspect of the position is serving as liaison with UW-Platteville, the partner campus for UW-Richland’s BAAS program.

This new position, UW-Richland’s first BAAS advisor, is in addition to a 25% position Muller has held since last July, as BAAS Coordinator, which was also a first-time position at UW-Richland. As professional experience coordinator, she works with students, area businesses and local organizations to establish and supervise internships for students in the Bachelor of Applied Arts & Sciences degree program.

She has a master’s degree in academic advising from Kansas State University and is well-acquainted with UW-Richland, having served in the Business Services office since 2004.

Muller is eager to meet with people who would like to know more about the BAAS, a new opportunity for students to earn a bachelor’s degree at UW-Richland. To make an appointment with her, email or call the campus at (608) 647-6186, Extension 228. To find out more on the web, go to, and follow the links from “Academics.”
