Chancellor Chareles Sorensen

The University of Wisconsin System’s great strength lies in its diversity: two doctoral campuses, 11 comprehensive universities and 13 two-year colleges.  Each comprehensive campus has its own unique mission and, within the past several years, a number of the universities have focused even more sharply on describing their purpose and programs.

This differentiation is critical because the market for higher education is becoming extremely competitive. Highly successful for-profit institutions, private colleges, and virtual programs and universities are challenging the dominance the UW System once had in the market.

Just as in the private sector, we must brand our uniqueness; we must characterize our programs and campuses so our students, parents, stakeholders and employers understand the value that we provide.
