Alum builds community in La Crosse’s old neighborhoods


Amanda Acklin, ’09, always believed in being inclusive, fair and helping others. But studying Asian philosophy and phenomenology at UW-L was when it really clicked. Her classes solidified ideas about how people are connected in the world.

Today Acklin is living that philosophy. She’s connecting citizens, local governments, hospitals and other organizations to make La Crosse a better place to live.
