Universities of Wisconsin President Jay Rothman launched the “OpportUWnity Tour” on Tuesday, September 26, 2023, at the Cleary Alumni and Friends Center at UW-La Crosse. The goal of the tour is to spark connections and collaboration between the UW universities and business and community partners across the state.

“The purpose of the university is to serve the state and try to touch every corner of the state consistent with the Wisconsin Idea. Connecting with the business needs and helping the state win the war for talent so that our employers can continue to employ great people in the state is certainly one of the main purposes of this,” said Rothman.
