The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh and the University of Wisconsin-Fox Valley have entered into a new partnership that will allow area residents to earn a Bachelor of Liberal Studies (B.L.S.) degree in Leadership Development from UW Oshkosh, with all classes held at the UWFox campus in Menasha.
UWFox Campus Executive Officer and Dean Jim Perry, UW Colleges Chancellor David Wilson and UW Oshkosh Chancellor Richard Wells signed the pact on Tuesday, March 3 during a ceremony held at UWFox.
UWFox students can earn credits toward both their associate’s and bachelor’s degrees simultaneously by fulfilling their general education course requirements at UWFox. With an emphasis in Leadership Development, UW Oshkosh’s B.L.S. program is designed specifically to serve adult students and will be delivered at UWFox using a combination of face-to-face classes, distance learning technology and online learning.
Perry said, "Over the past several years as I have met with individuals in our community, one theme has emerged – the need for educational access at a place and time convenient for the student. This is especially important for the non-traditional student, the adult learner, trying to juggle his or her family, professional and educational life. These bachelor degree programs are designed to fit the needs, from content to scheduling, of busy people."
UWO and UWFox are two of the 26 campuses that comprise University of Wisconsin System, with UWFox part of the 13-campus UW Colleges.
This is the fifth bachelor’s degree offered at UWFox, which also offers degrees mechanical engineering and electrical engineering through UW-Platteville, Organizational Administration through UW Oshkosh, and American Studies through UW-Stevens Point.
