The value of higher education in our region has never been more critical – for talent development, entrepreneurship and the economy. University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Chancellor Mark Mone will share how Wisconsin’s only public, urban, top-tier research university has taken a leading role in regional talent partnerships and addressing societal needs in the state and further afield. Through strategic re-invention and research, UW-Milwaukee is redefining itself and the region through “Big Projects” like the Connected Systems Institute, Lubar Entrepreneurship Center, Freshwater University, and M3 with Milwaukee Public Schools and Milwaukee Area Technical College to close the achievement gap. These powerful partnerships harness the collective vitalities of academia, business, our communities and government to create essential change.
