Over the last several years, UW Colleges has faced enrollment and financial challenges brought on by Wisconsin’s changing population demographics.
To ensure the future viability and sustainability of all our campuses, in November 2017, the UW System Board of Regents passed a resolution approving the restructure of UW Colleges and UW Extension.
The resolution allows UW System President Ray Cross to join the 13 two-year UW Colleges with the UW’s four-year comprehensive and research institutions. Divisions within UW-Extension will be assigned to UW-Madison and UW System Administration.
