Dynamic place to work, opportunities for those who aggressively seek out new initiatives

Director (Current Employee) Madison, WI

ProsTerrific professionals in research and teaching. Best students are as capable as you will find at the most selective universities, making credit and non-credit teaching opportunities particularly rewarding. Benefits are competitive.

ConsFacilities and technology can lag behind other universities, especially private schools. Decentralized governance with a standalone alumni association, technology transfer office and foundation decrease efficiencies for the administrators. Inefficiencies compounded by regulatory requirements applied indiscriminately to all State of Wisconsin agencies.

Advice to Senior ManagementExcellent focus on the liberal arts in the current administration. UW's strength in medical science, engineering and other fields could obscure the value of -- and allocation of $$$ to -- key disciplines with strong scholarship in the humanities tradition.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
