Twenty-two Democratic members of the State Assembly sent a letter to Andrew Petersen, the University of Wisconsin System Board of Regents President, last week urging him to add members to the Search and Screen Committee for the new President of UW System. The committee currently has no representation from faculty and staff and just one student, the non-traditional student Regent.
The letter-signers included every Madison area representative whose district is entirely or mostly in Dane County.
PROFS also contacted Petersen with serious concerns about the composition of the search committee. That letter is here.
