About LSS

Learning Support Services (LSS) is a non-academic department in the College of Letters & Science at UW-Madison. Since its earliest days as the Language Lab serving foreign language faculty, our primary mission at LSS has been to support faculty and instructional staff in accomplishing their mission to teach students. Over the years, LSS has become involved in other related activities, but this core instructional support mission remains.
