Marty's Message

I am proud of the lead role the College of Professional Studies played in the university's record-breaking capital campaign which brought in $41.5 million.

During recent years of tuition freezes and declining state support, one of the few ways to be exceptional is through the giving from people and organizations that care about our programs.

For CPS, organizations like Sentry Insurance and Marshfield Clinic Health System, as well as individuals including Keith and Tammy Anderson, Mark and Julie Smiley, Ray Mundt and John Seramur, have allowed us to provide much-needed scholarships, create new and innovative programs that benefit the region, and support students entering their careers.

Although the grand total was a record number, what will be accomplished is even more amazing. Thank you to everyone who had a part in the success!

Marty Loy, Dean
