The relationship between the University of Wisconsin System and UW institutions is the topic of today’s meeting of the Special Task Force on UW Restructuring and Operational Flexibilities. The Jan. 11 meeting at the State Capitol began with presentations by UW System President Kevin Reilly, UW-Parkside Chancellor Deborah Ford, UW-Stout Chancellor Charles Sorensen and UW-Oshkosh Chancellor Richard Wells, followed by a discussion open to all task force members including UW Colleges and UW-Extension Chancellor Ray Cross.
This is the second of seven scheduled task force meetings. The first, Dec. 7, included a presentation by Aims McGuiness of the National Center on Higher Education Management Systems. He provided perspectives from other states regarding regulations, accountability and partnerships.
The next task force meeting will be Feb. 8. The legislature created the task force in June 2011 after the Joint Finance Committee rejected a proposal to split to split UW-Madison from the rest of the UW System. The task force report is due in July 2012.
