Students at UW-Platteville Richland walk across the campus in Richland Center, Wis. Friday, Jan. 31, 2020. JOHN HART STATE JOURNAL The University of Wisconsin System has ordered UW-Platteville to shift its instructional programs away from its Richland Center campus starting next year, as enrollment hits an all-time low. UW-Madison's annual fundraising drive, called "Fill the Hill," taps into the mischief of a flamingo prank pulled in 1979 to raise money for dozens of causes on campus. KIMBERLY WETHAL, STATE JOURNAL In a letter to UW-Platteville Interim Chancellor Tammy Evetovich, System President Jay Rothman outlined a four-step plan for the Richland Center campus, which includes moving all instructional programs to either the Platteville or Baraboo campuses for fall 2023 while developing a plan to "maintain a suitable presence" in the Richland County campus through such things as enrichment programs or courses for adults.
