Northeastern Wisconsin's Growth Agenda, UW System Board of Regents, Business, Finance, and Audit Committee, April 6, 2006.
      It is Northeastern Wisconsin’s Growth Agenda.

And, I must forewarn you: just as we have been challenged by our community, you will be challenged by what we are presenting.

And, the challenge runs more deeply than the fiscal, political, and social barriers you will immediately perceive. We, as did La Crosse last month, are challenging the very core notion of what philosophy should drive the governance and leadership of a state higher education system in the modern age.

What we want to do, what other campuses want to do are made difficult by the political and fiscal realities; they are made impossible if we continue with a governance philosophy oriented toward issues of uniformity and homogeneity, perhaps necessary at the time of merger. Today, 35 years later, though, there are new challenges, and the old approach is an impediment. Any large enterprise, if it is to succeed, must effectively institutionalize the capacity to differentially adapt and relentlessly change.

One thing, though, is more relevant than ever: Mission.
