Wisconsin legislators quietly consider realigning colleges, universities - Steven Walters, Walworth County Today

Wisconsin legislators have begun quietly and unofficially discussing how the state's 42 public universities and colleges—the 26 UW System campuses and the 16 technical colleges—might be realigned to deal with dwindling state aid. If approved, any shift would be the biggest realignment of higher education since the UW System was stitched together in 1971 by merging state colleges, the Madison and Milwaukee campuses, and two-year centers. In a WisconsinEye interview, Cathy Sandeen, chancellor of the UW Colleges and UW Extension, said Assembly Speaker Robin Vos asked some legislators to begin studying potential mergers of the 16 technical colleges and UW System institutions.
