Education leaders talk budget cuts, need to attract more students: Slideshow - Mark Kass, Milwaukee Business Journal

Milwaukee-area higher education leaders said that, for the most part, 2014 enrollment was flat and there is a need for innovative recruitment efforts to continue to draw students. Check out the slideshow linked below to see photos of the education leaders that took part in the Milwaukee Business Journal's Education Roundtable. For the University of Wisconsin System, the focus is on recruiting students and convincing state legislators to allocate more funds to education."The biggest challenge is convincing the state that this is an incredibly important investment and not an expense," UW President Cross said. "Our education system is critical to producing the future workforce for this state." Cross said he has talked with Gov. Scott Walker and legislators about increased funding for the UW System.
