UW-Whitewater invites members of the campus and Whitewater community to join the Community Advisory Council, a new entity that will seek to expand and build new partnerships between business, community, and governmental organizations. The Council will also provide input to strengthen existing programs such as the Community Engagement Center, UW-Whitewater’s camps and conferences, parking, the Fairhaven Lecture Series, housing and other campus-community partnerships.
“A strong community benefits a university, and a thriving university benefits the community,” said UW-Whitewater Chancellor Beverly Kopper. “This Council will help strengthen our relationships with our community partners, and explore new opportunities as we work together.”
The Community Advisory Council, which will be led by Joel Nilsestuen, legislative and community outreach coordinator for UW-Whitewater, is expected to meet quarterly or on an ad hoc basis.
Members will include representatives from key campus and community organizations and others responding to this call for membership. Those interested are invited to complete this brief online form by 5 pm Friday, Oct. 12: http://uwwhitewater.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_b26nZlO9WP6CoTP
