Tuesday’s UW System planning sessions draw media coverage
Top University of Wisconsin System officials including President Ray Cross and Regent President Regina Millner were on the UW-Green Bay campus Tuesday to host community members, business and health care leaders, school administrators and others as they work to create a long-term strategic plan. Green Bay Press-Gazette reporter Patti Zarling noted that among those attending the afternoon session were state School Superintendent Tony Evers, UW-Green Bay Chancellor Gary Miller, Northeast Wisconsin Technical College President Jeff Rafn, and a number of Brown County school district officials. Her story quotes Cross, Miller and the president of the Green Bay Education Association.
Fox 11 News interviewed session participants and quoted UW System President Cross, who said, “Our job (here) is to listen, not lecture.”
WBAY-TV 2 interviewed Cross and others including Mike Blecha of the Green Bay Area School Board, who said, “We need to serve students who come from non-traditional families and backgrounds where a college education is not in the family… then, once those students graduate, to make sure our best and brightest stay here in Wisconsin instead of leaving for other states.”
