University plans to lease former Mid-State facility

MSTC The University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point would expand existing health and wellness educational programs and partner to offer a new doctorate of physical therapy program if plans progress to lease the former Mid-State Technical College facility. The first step for a proposed Center for Healthy Communities was taken when the Stevens Point Common Council agreed to move forward with UW-Stevens Point’s proposal to lease the city-owned former MSTC facility. Along with providing opportunities for our students, this building will bring health and wellness resources to the community and develop a stronger health care workforce in Central and Northcentral Wisconsin.

Marty's Message

The College of Professional Studies awards 170 scholarships that recognize CPS students for a variety of reasons. One of the more unique scholarships is our CPS Heroes Award. This award recognizes one CPS student annually who has done something heroic. In some cases the recipient may have overcome a challenge, in other cases they may have been advocates for something bigger than themselves, and in yet other cases, they may have helped someone in need.  
Anyone can honor someone in their life they deem a hero by making a gift. Our most recent honored hero is Dick Cable, a great friend of the College of Professional Studies. His sister Judy Cable Anderson nominated him for being her hero. Interestingly, Dick is the person who originally came to us with the CPS Heroes Award idea. Please read about all of our honored heroes and hero recipients by visiting the CPS Heroes webpage.
To nominate one of your students for the CPS Heroes Award, complete this nomination form by Feb. 15, 2015.
