Chancellor Miller statement on UW System budget proposal

UW-Green Bay Chancellor Gary L. Miller released the following statement to faculty, staff, board members and other stakeholders on Thursday, Aug. 21:

Today, UW System President Ray Cross shared his vision of a new model for the UW System that will focus on the development of high-impact talent for Wisconsin (view UW System news release). A biennial budget request designed to move this vision forward was presented to the Board of Regents.

This is a bold plan that embraces many of the foundational ideas of UW-Green Bay. This vision will be extremely important as we create the future of this University amidst the new demographic realities, an increased obligation to build regional partnerships to support the economy and, most importantly, preparing students for productive work lives in a global economy.

This is a time of great potential for UW-Green Bay and the UW System. As one of the most respected systems of higher education in the country, we are uniquely positioned to nurture and develop talent and ideas for the benefit of the state, nation and beyond.

I encourage all of you to review President Cross’ vision as we move forward with our discussions this fall. Working together, we can be an even greater catalyst for positive change.
