The UW-Green Bay office of the Chancellor sent the following message to faculty, staff, students and trustees on Wednesday, October 11, 2017.
I attach a letter from UW-System President Ray Cross announcing his intention to recommend to the Board of Regents a significant realignment of UW Extension and the UW Colleges. Under the proposal, UW-Sheboygan, UW-Manitowoc and UW-Marinette would become part of UW-Green Bay.
The reorganization is to take effect on July 1, 2018. Implementation teams at both the System and Campus levels will begin the work of planning for this transition after Board of Regents approval.
We will work closely with Chancellor Sandeen and her leadership team to arrange visits to campus and the communities in the near future.
Our shared vision to grow and become a key driver of the economy, education outcomes and community vitality of Green Bay and the surrounding region will take an exciting step forward if the proposal is approved. You play a critical role in realizing that vision. I look forward to working with many of you to set the course for a successful transition and our expansion to a multi-campus university.
