Restructuring Overview


All UW-College campuses will remain open during and after the realignment, and tuition at all institutions involved will remain the same. There are several guiding principles on which we will operate:

  • Transparency and accountability through open forums and regular updates
  • A focus on supporting and engaging faculty, staff and students
  • Attention to student success and high-impact practices
  • Community engagement across the entire geographic region
Campus Involvement

We are committed to engaging students, faculty, staff, community leaders, and other stakeholders in making this a successful transition. Regional restructuring committees are being established, which will form a central Steering Committee. All stakeholders will have a voice in this process, so please watch for upcoming events at your campus. There are eight working teams with sub-committees that will carry out the discovery, planning and implementation work:
