Chancellor Miller updates Marinette County Board
The Peshtigo Times reported Chancellor Gary L. Miller’s report to the Marinette County Board this week. “The board also heard an enthusiastic report from UW-Green Bay Chancellor Gary Miller on restructuring of the University of Wisconsin (UW) that will make UW campuses at Marinette, Sheboygan and Manitowoc part of UW-Green Bay on or about July 1 of this year.
Miller described the historic restructuring as ‘a tremendous opportunity’ for the local campuses. He said the 14 counties surrounding the expanded UW-Green Bay represent 27 percent of the total Wisconsin population if you exclude the Milwaukee area, and include some of the finest tourist attractions in the state. He believes this will be the only coastal university in the entire Midwest… He said with the combined campuses they will have a larger footprint, and thus have a bigger impact on the economy of the area. He plans to have all degrees available to students attending the Marinette campus, including opportunities for associates, bachelors and masters degrees.” See more.
