Chancellor Miller addresses large crowd at Town Hall forum

UW-Green Bay Chancellor Gary Miller addressed an audience of about 300 faculty, staff and students as part of an informational budget “town hall” session in the University Theatre, Wednesday (June 3). In his brief opening remarks, the Chancellor expressed his love for working in the Higher Education Academy and his deep appreciation to those who are giving selflessly for UWGB students. He said he understands the frustration and anger during the process, and he expressed his gratitude to alumni, legislators, the Board of Regents and UWGB trustees who are fighting on behalf of UWGB and the UW System. He noted that restoration of about $50 million in funding to the UW System is welcomed news.

‘We will have shared governance and tenure at UWGB’
In his opening remarks at the town hall forum, Chancellor Miller said that despite the recent omnibus motion that included changes to shared governance statutes and the removal of tenure from the statutes, “we will have shared governance and tenure at UWGB and in the UW System.”
