Chancellor Miller talks reserves for ‘Press-Gazette’ front-page story

The Green Bay Press-Gazette took a look at UW-Green Bay’s Program Revenue fund balances for a front-page story in Monday’s (Oct. 20) newspaper, speaking with University Chancellor Gary L. Miller about the funds in light of a recently released UW System report.
