MARSHFIELD – The UW-Stevens Point at Marshfield unveiled signage reflecting their new name, in a ceremony held Sept. 19 on the Marshfield campus.
The University of Wisconsin System Board of Regents approved name changes for the UW-Stevens Point’s new branch campuses in Wausau and Marshfield in August.
UW-Marshfield/Wood County, founded in 1964, is now the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point at Marshfield, joining 12 other two-year campuses of the UW Colleges which became part of seven larger, four-year UW System universities. The move came as part of a UW System restructuring, proposed by President Ray Cross and approved by the Board of Regents.
