Sen. Marklein Visits UW Platteville
Teaches classes about experiences in forensic accounting, visits with faculty, administrators and students

UWP 4.6.16.jpgMADISON— State Senator Howard Marklein (R-Spring Green) spent the day on the campus of the University of Wisconsin Platteville today to share his experiences, hear from students and meet with faculty and administrators.

Marklein shared his experiences as a forensic accountant with Dr. Baozhing Tian’s Introduction to Computer Security class and Dr. Kevan Norin’s Police Function class. The goal of these presentations was to expose non-accounting students to alternative careers that blend computers, law enforcement, business, math and accounting.

“The faculty at UW Platteville wanted to expose their classes to new ideas and career options,” Marklein said. “It was an honor to be invited to share my experiences with students who are deciding the path for the rest of their career.”

Marklein also met with Dr. Patrick Solar, a member of the Criminal Justice department, to discuss a Fraud Investigation program he is developing, Chancellor Dennis Shields, the Executive Members of the Student Senate and the members of Beta Alpha, an organization for students interested in the accounting profession.

“As the State Senator for the 17th Senate District, which includes UW Platteville, my visit today was refreshing and interesting,” Marklein said. “It is good to be on campus for non-legislative business and to be able to interact with students in a new way.  I look forward to visiting again and learning more about other departments at UW Platteville.”
