Marty's Message

I am proud that our CPS faculty and staff are leaders in many vital aspects of our community from helping build a strong local economy; to community health, historical preservation, diversity, health care; and strengthening schools and improving literacy.

Our faculty come from all over the world and when they move to Central Wisconsin, they bring extensive experience and expertise in their disciplines. It is no surprise then to see how they put their know-how and passions to work locally.

Be sure to read Chancellor Patterson’s column in this Monday Message where he describes the many other ways our faculty and staff are involved locally.  
Marty Loy,
