Provost Britz came to UC this day and briefed us on the status of deans’ searches, and how the “Office of Central Advising” will be set up. The process will be incremental, and existing multi-cultural centers will be preserved in the new structure. New advisers funded by a system grant will be hired and will work for the OCA while existing advisers will continue to work within L&S for the first year.

Britz also gave a detailed description of the status of all schools and colleges at UWM, and how strategic concerns are informing new hires, as we start to turn the corner on handling the massive budget cuts of the current biennium.
