WISCONSIN NEWS ROUNDUP: New UW System President promises to be more open with lawmakers
The new president of the U-W System promises to be more open about the university's finances, and to collaborate more closely with state lawmakers. Ray Cross told reporters at the Milwaukee campus today that he's excited about taking over next month. He replaces Kevin Reilly, who -- like Cross -- was the extension-and-colleges chancellor just before being promoted to the presidency. Cross had held the post since 2011.
