Study of the UW System in the 21st Century. A Final Report by the University of Wisconsin System Board of Regents.
Wisconsin Univ. System, Madison.
In August 1995, the Board of Regents of the University of Wisconsin (UW) System initiated a 10-month study to examine and address key challenges facing public higher education in Wisconsin during a time of competing demands for state resources. With participation by faculty, staff, students, elected officials, and the public, a series of draft recommendations were prepared by the Board for discussion with the UW System's stakeholders. Five regional public hearings were conducted by the Board. These were followed by a statewide town hall discussion sponsored by a consortium of commercial and public media outlets. This final report was prepared after consideration of comments on the draft recommendations. The report's contents include discussion of: (1) the UW System's environment; (2) the response of study recommendations to the environmental scan and public commentary; (3) public commentary; (4) UW's partnership with the state of Wisconsin; and (5) the synopsis of final recommendations. The recommendations address: preserving and enhancing access to quality, keeping college affordable, creating new knowledge and fostering career and professional development, and restructuring and improving the efficiency of the UW System. The report includes the full text of the final recommendations and lists of study staff. (EV)
