UW-Green Bay Chancellor Thomas Harden met Tuesday (Oct. 13) with the Chancellor’s Council of Trustees — civic and business leaders who serve as ex-officio advisers providing counsel on institutional initiatives.
It was the Council’s first meeting of the 2009-10 academic year, and the group’s first formal session with Harden, who assumed his duties as chancellor in June.
“The Council of Trustees is a very important link between campus and community,” Harden said. “I value their counsel and know that in the past they have been very important to this institution.”
Campus officials offered the Trustees an update on the implications of state-mandated budget cuts on UW-Green Bay people and programs. Council members, in turn, posed questions and offered suggestions.
Formed in April 1998, the Council currently consists of 20 members. Several are UW-Green Bay alumni. The latest additions are retired SuperValu president Michael Jackson, a 1976 graduate, and Green Bay Packers President and CEO Mark Murphy, who joined the Council last year.
