Support Appreciated In University Merger

UW-Oshkosh Chancellor Andrew Leavitt says local support is important in the merger involving the UW-Oshkosh, UW-Fond du Lac, and UW-Fox Valley. The three will become one university on July 1st although the transition will take a bit longer. Leavitt believes it will benefit students on all three campuses. He appreciates the support they’ve received from officials in Fond du Lac County and the support of UW-Colleges Northeast Regional Executive Officer and Dean Martin Rudd.  Leavitt says, “I really do appreciate the spirit, the support that we have received in Fond du Lac certainly from Mr. Buechel and Mr. Moore in terms of their support for this very ambitious project. I couldn’t ask for a better partner in Martin Rudd in terms of bringing the two institutions together.”
