Video links to Town Halls — July 9
On July 9, Chancellor Dwight C. Watson and university leadership held live Town Halls via Webex Events to update faculty and staff, the greater Whitewater and Rock County communities and students and their families on returning to the university.
If you were unable to join during the live events, you are strongly encouraged to watch the videos, which covered a wide variety of important topics, including plans for personal and community safety, course delivery, student life and services, and athletics and events, to name a few.
Many questions from students, faculty and staff, and the community were also addressed during the presentation.
