UW-Washington County's University Council is the community and outreach body of the campus. University Council has played and continues to play a critical role in acquainting the public with the cultural and artistic offerings of UW-Washington County, and has worked closely with local government agencies to make them aware of the benefits that the campus brings to our entire community.
The Council has also helped our commuter campus build a sense of community that brings students, staff and faculty together. Opening and closing all-campus picnics are sponsored by Council as are events welcoming new faculty and staff to the community. Their work has helped UW-Washington County achieve its record enrollments and outstanding retention of first year students.
Council Co-Chairs are: Dr. Don Muth and Sue McCullough.
Council members include: Kristin Bayer, Dave Bertelsen, Paul DeChant, Norbert Dettmann, Sara Fleischman, Barbara Herther, Gaytha Hillman, Janet Hubbell, Allan Kieckhafer, Jane Maley, Nancy Mehring, Margaret Nielsen, Lois Pellegrini, Bob Ramsthal, Ruth Schmitt, and Nancy Van Vooren. Campus representative includes Paul Price, Dean and Iva Thelen, WCCF Executive Director.
