Columnist quotes Harden, Green in Weidner Center analysis

In case you missed it over the long weekend, veteran Green Bay Press-Gazette reporter Warren Gerds offered his thoughts on the Weidner Center revitalization in his column Saturday (May 26). Gerds shared that he was impressed by Chancellor Tom Harden’s straight-forward declaration that budgets will be in the black even this first year. The columnist also noted that UW-Green Bay promises to cut campus and community entities a break on rental fees and that, without naming names, Harden indicated at least one private benefactor has pledged financial support. Gerds quotes Harden on the thinking behind the Weidner initiative: “I became chancellor here almost three years ago, and from the very beginning I heard loudly and clearly that many people felt that the Weidner Center was under-utilized and sort of missing the mark.” To see the full column.
