Updated Thursday, Nov. 9:
The UW Board of Regents approved a plan at its monthly meeting Thursday that would merge the systems two-year schools with its four-year campuses. The Regents approved the proposal on a voice vote -- with Tony Evers and Janice Mueller dissenting.
The proposal, crafted by UW System president Ray Cross, will impact the UW Colleges, four-year institutions and the UW-Extension -- but not Wisconsin's Technical College System, which is a separate entity.
