The Chancellor met with the UC to discuss several items. There have recently been two listening sessions held related to the joining of the Washington County and Waukesha colleges to UWM. A UC member will attend joint meetings, to be held this week and next, at the two UW-College campuses. Fundraising efforts for the capital campaign are progressing well. The status of the performance based funding initiative was discussed. The UC formally acknowledged the many contributions made over the past 46 years of service by retiring UC member Dr. Swarnjit Arora, and the UC wishes him well on his retirement. Please note that the UC will not meet over the semester break. The next UC meeting will be 1/9/18. On behalf of the UWM University Committee, we wish the faculty, staff and students of UW-Milwaukee a safe and happy New Year.
