Closure of UW- Milwaukee at Washington County

West Bend, WI – County Executive Josh Schoemann issued the following statement regarding the closure of the UW-Milwaukee at Washington County branch campus:

“As a past school board president in Washington County, I understand the difficulties of making tough decisions that affect a community and its students.  One thing I learned from navigating such difficulties is that it is essential to keep schools focused on students. I remain wholly committed to keeping students first as we work through this transition, fighting to keep higher education opportunities in our community for the students of today and the future.”
