The Coronavirus' Impact On UW-Milwaukee

Apr 2, 2020

For the past few weeks, all of us have been living with the threat of the coronavirus pandemic. It has changed our way of life as we watch huge numbers of Americans, including members of our own community, fall ill and sadly, too often, die from the effects of the virus.

On today’s program we talk about the impact COVID-19 is having on UW-Milwaukee, with 26,000 students, the largest university in our region. We are going to hear from the people who are helping to lead the university through what is becoming one of the most challenging events in the history of UWM. Our special guests include Chancellor Mark Mone, who is joined by Robin Van Harpen, the vice chancellor of finance and administrative affairs, and Kelly Haag, the chief student affairs officer at UWM.

Because of the stay at home order by Gov. Tony Evers, all four of us are working from our home offices, joining you by teleconference.
