Cross explains proposal to restructure UW (Eagle Herald)

The (Marinette) Eagle Herald published an extensive story about the UW restructure. “It is potentially the most significant reorganization we’ve considered since 1971, the year of the merger that created this great system,” Cross told the Board of Regents Thursday in his proposal. “Just as it was back then, our primary concern is ensuring that this university is prepared for what might lay ahead — 10, 15, 20 years down the road. And to ensure that we’re in the best position to serve our students, the State of Wisconsin and its people as we consider the future, we must better understand our current environment, the challenges that we face and the things that matter most to our primary stakeholders — the people, communities and businesses of Wisconsin.”
