Marty's Message

CPS faculty and students are outward focused and as such they work closely with national organizations and local community partners to solve our most pressing needs.

In this Monday Message you will read about a new nursing completion program in our School of Health Care Professions designed to help improve nursing in Central Wisconsin by providing a pathway for RNs and LPNs to earn bachelor’s degree’s; a “Cancer Night” event put on by our hockey team for Saint Michael’s Foundation to support the Breast Cancer Center; and a luncheon sponsored by our School of Business & Economics to discuss how internationalizing businesses can help local companies.  
These are examples of activities that happen all the time in the College of Professional Studies—that is why we are proud to be CPS!

Marty Loy,
Dean CPS
