Keeping America’s Promise: Quality and Opportunity in a UW-Whitewater Education

Interim Provost Cook and other university leaders presented, “Keeping America’s Promise: Quality and Opportunity in a UW-Whitewater Education” at the 2019 Fall Forum on August 27, 2019. After a lively meet-and-greet networking session from 9:00 am to 9:30 am, Dr. Cook and his fellow presenters reviewed significant achievements that UW-Whitewater celebrates along with a review of national and regional enrollment trends, UW-Whitewater enrollment, and the implications of enrollment for the university’s budget. Provost Cook invited everyone to join the conversation as we all explore ways to increase enrollment, serve students and the region, and contribute to cost savings across the Division of Academic Affairs and the University.

The Fall Forum presentation slides are available here.
