Part of the Springer Series on Environmental Management book series (SSEM)


The Wisconsin Idea, a concept that encourages University of Wisconsin faculty to work with state government to solve significant state problems, creates a special working relationship between the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) and the University of Wisconsin (UW). It leads administrators to encourage and reward staff for collaborating to solve statewide problems. It accelerates the application of state-of-the-art academic knowledge to solve important statewide problems. This chapter presents an example of the Wisconsin Idea expressed in greater detail through the subsequent pages of this volume.
