One-on-One with Public Officials
We invite you to join us for coffee and an informal meeting with public officials, including local, state or federal leaders. You will get a chance to sit down one-on-one with a government official who impacts where you work and live.
UW System Interim President and former Wisconsin Governor Tommy Thompson will provide an update on the UW System. Governor Thompson is a well-known champion of Wisconsin’s public universities, and he has called for a renewal of the Wisconsin Idea, the principle that the UW System serves all parts of the state. As a former U.S. Secretary for Health and Human Services (HHS), Governor Thompson’s health policy experience is critical as universities respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. He chairs the UW System Business Council and helped lead a public-private campaign to fund UW-Madison’s BioStar Initiative with the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation.
