The new Panther Promoters has been formed by Milwaukee community and business leaders to “raise the profile” of UW-Milwaukee and boost resources.

Supporters are already lining up, including GMC, the Metropolitan Milwaukee Area Chamber of Commerce, the Milwaukee 7 and other groups from southeastern Wisconsin.

“We will work to ensure that UWM wins its fair share of the resources managed by the UW Regents, the governor, legislature and the state building commission,” said Rich Meeusen, one of the founders for Panther Promoters, CEO of Badger Meter and chairman of the Greater Milwaukee Committee.

The Promoters will shine a spotlight on UWM’s “compelling set of strengths,” including its willingness to pursue diversity programs and its rising status as a research institution.
