Thanks Ray Cross for His Service, Wishes Him Well in Retirement 

GREEN BAY– Senator Robert Cowles (R-Green Bay) released the following statement after Ray Cross, the President of the University of Wisconsin (UW) System since 2014, announced his retirement today: 

“Ray Cross has been a great leader for higher education in Wisconsin. During Ray’s time as President, his commitment to our state has been undeniable and he’ll leave the UW-System in a better position than when he first took over. I want to thank him specifically for his work with myself and the Joint Legislative Audit Committee. Ray’s retirement will be felt on campuses throughout the state and right here in the State Capitol, but his retirement is well deserved and I wish him all the best.”
