Vice Chancellor’s Message

I am pleased to present the Strategic Plan for Finance and Administration units at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. This plan includes strategies for improving campus life for all members of the university community, building a highly competent and diverse workforce, enhancing the university’s financial position and other strategies that will support and strengthen UW–Madison’s academic, research, and outreach mission.

Finance and Administration staff play an essential role in delivering UW–Madison’s success. We collaborate with partners across the campus to help make UW–Madison an outstanding university and one of Wisconsin’s most important resources. We are dedicated to providing high-quality service to students, faculty, staff, colleagues, and visitors to the university.

UW–Madison has long been inspired by the Wisconsin Idea—a time-honored principle that higher education should influence people’s lives beyond the classroom and enrich the quality of life in Wisconsin and beyond. UW–Madison, working with campus stakeholders, developed a strategic plan to advance the Wisconsin Idea and position campus for the next decade and beyond. Informed by broad input and aligned with campus priorities, this strategic plan will guide Finance and Administration units as we help UW–Madison address its opportunities and challenges with a strengthened commitment to our students, the state, and the Wisconsin Idea.

On behalf of the 2,400-plus employees and 6,500 student employees in Finance and Administration units, thank you for your interest in our strategic plan and On, Wisconsin!
