UW System Could Be Restructured

A proposed restructuring plan calls for merging the University of Wisconsin System's two and four-year campuses. 

The proposal from System President Ray Cross would integrate the UW Colleges campuses into its four-year institutions by the beginning of next July. 

Cross said the change is meant to address the state's demographic changes, budgetary constraints, and need for a closer alignment between the campuses.  

Under the proposed plan, UW-Barron County would integrate with UW-Eau Claire programs.
