Advantage Wisconsin: Strategic Framework
The University of Wisconsin (UW) campuses, faculty, and staff are uniquely positioned to help create a stronger future for this great state. The UW System's vision is to Advantage Wisconsin. To do this, the UW System aims to be:
- the premier developer of human talent in Wisconsin;
- a key catalyst for creating the high-paying jobs that use this talent; and
- a vital partner to communities that sustain this talent.
Advantage Wisconsin provides the overarching strategies by which UW campuses are working with internal and external partners to improve economic success for Wisconsin businesses and employees and retain Wisconsin’s high quality of life for its citizens. This effort has become a key component of a statewide effort to create a new, more effective blueprint for identifying and meeting Wisconsin’s priorities.
The Advantage Wisconsin strategic framework has informed the UW System’s Growth Agenda for Wisconsin, an initiative that guides budgetary priorities for the UW System. Advantage Wisconsin has built upon and expanded this initiative to focus and align efforts of the UW institutions and internal and external partners to make Wisconsin a stronger state. Advantage Wisconsin has made the Growth Agenda for Wisconsin far more than a budgetary initiative -- it is the UW System's vision to achieve a stronger future for Wisconsin.
