The committee met with Mark Mone and Tom Luljak. We discussed the media communications for the campus and responses to the inaccurate information about the campus in a press release from the Governor’s office on May 10, 2016. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s Politifact evaluation labeled the claims “Pants on Fire” in a column posted online on Friday, May 13, and printed in the Sunday paper. The Governor’s office released a similar statement about UW Green Bay on May 11, 2016.

Later we received news that the Academic Staff Senate met and voted to support a Resolution of No Confidence in UW System President and Board of Regents, 21 yes, 1 no, 5 abstentions.
