Education center to open in Hudson, Wis.
May 6, 2010
The University of Wisconsin-River Falls is set to open a Hudson-based educational facility that will serve the St. Croix Valley in the fall of 2010, according to University Communications.
The Hudson Center will include technology-enabled classrooms and meeting spaces. The center will also serve as a base for UWRF to strengthen relationships with the area business community to meet economic development and workforce needs.
The center also supports the UW System’s “More Graduates for Wisconsin” initiative, and the UW System will provide start-up funding for the center.
“As part of the UW System’s Growth Agenda for Wisconsin, we’re asking campuses to serve more students in new and creative ways, with a goal of stimulating a more vibrant state economy,” said UW System President Kevin Reilly. “The Hudson Center is a great example of how UW-River Falls is embracing this challenge and improving the university’s service to the entire region. I applaud Chancellor Van Galen and his team for their leadership and forward thinking.”
