Evers Highlights Plan to Replace Cofrin Library During UW-Green Bay Campus Stop | WTAQ News Talk | 97.5 FM · 1360 AM | Green Bay, WI

GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) – Governor Tony Evers pushed his $96.3 million project proposal to replace the Cofrin Library on the UW-Green Bay campus during a visit on Wednesday.“The UW Campuses are the economic drivers of the state,” Evers said. “As we come out of the pandemic, we need to Build Back Better with a major investment in technology and higher education.”“Investing in both is critically important and will help us bounce back faster and better.”Chancellor Michael Alexander spoke specifically to the need for a new facility.“Not only is the aging Cofrin Library in major disrepair, it does not reflect the current view of how our future students will receive higher education. With a cost to renovate nearly as much as the cost to replace, the time is right to look to the future and provide the experience we need to serve a growing University,” Alexander said.
