UW Board of Regents

The Wisconsin Senate voted along party lines to seat Michael M. Grebe on the UW Board of Regents for a seven-year term.

The board oversees Wisconsin’s university system. Governor Walker nominated Grebe and Republicans confirmed his appointment on Tuesday.

Senate Democrats unsuccessfully urged a 'no' vote, expressing concerns about Grebe's political links with Gov. Walker and statements Grebe has made.

Grebe's father headed the governor's campaigns and oversees the conservative Bradley Foundation.

The UW Board of Regents says it must offer competitive salaries to lure top talent. One legislator calls the move, rewarding the  "administrative elite."

The UW Board of Regents will freeze tuition for all students, not just resident undergrads.

Just days after naming UW-Platteville student Josh Inglett to the Board of Regents, the  Walker administration has rescinded the appointment.

Members of the UW Board of Regents expressed regret Thursday, that they did not adequately detail the UW System's finances to legislators.
