Pros – UWSP is located in Stevens Point in central Wisconsin. The area is beautiful and the people are warm and friendly. UWSP itself is a small campus where it is possible to get to know people very quickly. The students are hardworking too, and you get earnest effort from them. Students also are very appreciative of faculty who work hard for them.
Cons – Like all of the UW schools, UWSP is undergoing serious budget problems. But because of poor management decisions over the last 20 years salaries at this institution seriously lag behind its sister institutions. This has lead to a number of problems that aren't easy to correct. First, many of the top faculty have left or are leaving to take positions elsewhere. Also, the campus culture is very calcified and it tends not to embrace change and can even be slightly hostile to it. Teaching and service loads are very high. Research is expected, but is not supported or rewarded. Collegiality is very spotty. Some departments get along quite well, but many do not and junior faculty are often abused (to give perspective, this reviewer is tenured). Administration has a problem with "revolving doors" where most come for 3-5 years and then leave for other places. This makes it hard for any long term vision to be implemented which faculty can rally behind.
Advice to Senior Management – Correct the salary issue and create a long term vision for the campus that everyone can work towards. Too often initiatives are started and then abandoned two years later. Faculty have become jaded under this system and hesitate to lend their time to campus efforts which may not last long. You need to change this to bring the campus back to a productive footing again.

Pros – Beautiful campus. Great individuals on campus. Many opportunities.
Cons – Titling and pay between faculty/academic staff/classified staff/project appointments/LTE's is confusing and often inequitable. Equal work for equal pay isn't happening.
