In a proactive effort to connect the resources of UW-Stevens Point to its regional communities, the university launched a new program. The Campus to Community program introduces UW-Stevens Point students and faculty to the communities in north central Wisconsin. [Photo Gallery]

Because our region requires a sustainable infusion of educated talent, it is incumbent to make every effort to promote the opportunities for employment and lifestyle that Marshfield, Stevens Point, Wausau and Wisconsin Rapids offer.
