UW-Milwaukee Union 2200 E Kenwood Blvd, Milwaukee, WI 53211

The value of higher education in our region has never been more critical – for talent development, entrepreneurship and the economy. University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Chancellor Mark Mone will share how Wisconsin’s only public, urban, top-tier research university has taken a leading role in regional talent partnerships and addressing societal needs in the state and further afield. Through strategic re-invention and research, UW-Milwaukee is redefining itself and the region through “Big Projects” like the Connected Systems Institute, Lubar Entrepreneurship Center, Freshwater University, and M3 with Milwaukee Public Schools and Milwaukee Area Technical College to close the achievement gap. These powerful partnerships harness the collective vitalities of academia, business, our communities and government to create essential change.

The City of Milwaukee and Harbor District, Inc. recently completed a “Water and Land Use Plan” for the Harbor District, an area including the Port of Milwaukee and surrounding land and waterways.  The culmination of two years of work and extensive public input, the plan will guide the transformation of this area from its past as exclusively an industrial port, to a mixed-use, publicly accessible, modern working waterfront that supports Milwaukee’s “Water-Centric City” goals.
