Marty's Message

The next time you see a young adult volunteering ask them if they are a student at UW-Stevens Point; I’ll bet the answer will be yes. Then ask their major and chances are good they are from the College of Professional Studies.
 
Now, do the same with adults who hold many of our local volunteer leadership positions. You will see the same result.  Whether it’s heading the Portage County CAN coalition (Annie Wetter), leading Community Industries (Gary Cumley), chairing the United Way Literacy Committee (Patty Caro and Cindy Cate), serving on the Central Wisconsin Airport Board (Dave Schalow), supporting Wood County’s Farm to School Program (Deborah Tang, Terry Aittama, Corey Huck) or conducting community-based research on Hmong health in Wausau (Nanc Slizewski) and Price County Dental Health (Jodi Olmsted). The examples are many, and impressive..
 
Maysee Herr’s involvement with our local Hmong community and Dan McCarty’s service on the Medical College of Wisconsin advisory board, both featured in today’s Monday message, highlight the ongoing service of CPS faculty and staff. 
 
Pursuing and promoting “helping professions,” our College of Professional Studies students, faculty and staff are active volunteers in many venues, including service learning based courses, professional student organizations, and elective community contributions. Together they support local groups and programs that enrich the lives of our neighbors and make Central Wisconsin an even better place to live.
 
We are proud to be CPS.
Marty Loy,
CPS Dean
