Chancellor To Host Town Hall For Future Students And Families

Chancellor To Host Town Hall For Future Students And Families

Please join me and other UW-Milwaukee leaders for a virtual town hall meeting at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, May 27. During these unparalleled times of COVID-19, we understand that uncertainty and ever-changing circumstances can be confusing and that you have questions. This Microsoft Teams town hall is designed especially for our future students and their families.

Several of our leaders will provide updates and all will be available to answer your questions. Participants include me, Vice Provost for Student Success Dave Clark, Director of Student Success Kay Eilers, Dean of Students Adam Jussel, Campus Health Officer Dr. Julia Bonner, and Financial Aid Director Tim Opgenorth.

We will share the latest actions we’ve taken in response to COVID-19, including information about academics, our campuses, safety and planning for summer and fall.

How to Ask a Question

As future students and Panther Families members, your voices are important. I invite your questions, which can be shared in advance or asked online during the live town hall by sending to: When submitting your question, please indicate whether you would prefer to remain anonymous. We have created a FAQ resource that is updated daily on the UWM coronavirus webpage. Please check this comprehensive resource before submitting a town hall question as it may already be answered; there are hundreds of answers available just a few clicks away.
