Santiago Staying: Now The Reconciliation...

So Florida International U. went in-house for its next President, leaving UW-Milwaukee's chancellor Carlos Santiago as the #2 finalist.

These are the risks of public searches, for sure, but I'm betting that Milwaukee will re-embrace Santiago and try to make him happier here with a bumped-up compensation package.

If the private sector boosters want Santiago to stay and pursue his campus research goals, they will have to step up with arrangements to make that happen.

please, please use the money to do something to make the Union building more attractive. the only public building that's uglier is the kansas city air terminal.

As a student at UWM and a Kansas City native (with roots firmly emplanted in Milwaukee), I must agree with you on all counts.
