The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay is working to raise $20 million within the next two years to support student financial aid and academic programming. Chancellor Michael Alexander says the goal is to maintain rapid enrollment growth without waiting on additional state dollars.
While enrollment at most University of Wisconsin System campuses has declined in recent years, it’s gone up by just more than 14 percent, or 1,218 students, at UW-Green Bay since 2018. That’s the fastest growth of any state owned university.
Chancellor Michael Alexander said in an interview with Wisconsin Public Radio that sustaining and advancing that growth takes resources, and the university can’t wait for additional state support from lawmakers.
