Chancellor's column - State support needed to recruit, retain top faculty, staff
Stevens Point Journal

By Bernie Patterson

“It’s infinitely harder to rebuild greatness once it’s been dismantled.” A year ago, The Chronicle of Higher Education attributed those words to Jonathan R. Cole, a professor and former provost at Columbia University.

As the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point heads into a new year, we think about those words in the context of our outstanding academic programs. Since its founding in 1894, the university has been a source of pride for central and northern Wisconsin. An early champion of sustainability and health, a promoter of arts and culture and a driver of economic prosperity, UWSP is one of the nation’s top regional universities.

However, greatness cannot be built and then abandoned. Maintaining greatness requires continual care and investment.
