Mone told Regents that funding UWM’s proposed budget will be critical to help retain faculty as well as support capital improvements at a time when UWM was “doing a tremendous amount with fewer resources.”
Describing UWM as at a crossroads, he said re-investment would help the institution address the needs of southeastern Wisconsin and the rest of the state. Mone described for Regents fresh evidence of the university’s commitment to creating collaborative solutions to help meet Wisconsin’s needs in key areas including health care, entrepreneurship, workforce development, and narrowing achievement gaps in education.
Redesignated as an R-1 university, UW-Milwaukee is focused with “deliberate intent on maintaining research in addition to its access mission,” Mone said.
