This summer, the University of Wisconsin campuses in Waukesha and Washington County will join UW-Milwaukee under the leadership of UWM Chancellor Mark Mone.

The three campuses are coming together following a vote by the UW Board of Regents to restructure the UW Colleges and Extension effective July 1, 2018. Together, the three campuses will be able to provide more opportunities for students and their communities.

Planning is underway, led by a UW System Steering Committee with representatives from across UW System. There is also a UW-Milwaukee Regional Campus Transition Committee comprised of faculty, staff, students, and governance representatives from UW-Waukesha, UW-Washington County and UW-Milwaukee. The Transition Committee will work through a range of issues including accreditation, student support issues, academic offerings, budget, governance, operational structure, and other areas. There will be issues to address by July 1 and beyond.

Throughout this process, we will use the following values:

  • Participative decision-making
  • Engaging shared governance
  • Valuing all colleagues
  • Developing relationships to build trust
  • Being mindful of our financial status
  • Openly communicating
  • Focusing on student, research and employee outcomes
