Governor Evers signs higher education credit transfer bill

The Alliance is proud to announce that Governor Evers signed Assembly Bill 189 – streamlining the credit transfer between the University of Wisconsin system and Wisconsin technical colleges and universities. The Alliance’s Education Policy Committee publicly supported the bill via letters of support to legislators and committee chairs, and in-person testimony during a public hearing in Madison.

Recognizing that education is critical to developing a strong future workforce, the Alliance is focused on fostering effective education pathways that prepare students for job opportunities in the marketplace today, and in the future.

An important aspect of making those pathways effective is reducing the time and cost to obtain a post-secondary degree, which we feel can be positively impacted by improving the transferable credits among higher education institutions. Support for a comprehensive, coherent credit transfer system has been a policy priority of the Waukesha County Business Alliance for years.
