What's Missing in This Picture?

In a lengthy hagiography of Tommy Thompson, the Journal-Sentinel Pravda placed a picture of Tommy's "Issues" whiteboard.

There's something very important missing from the 'to-do' list.  Can you name it?

 CORRECT!!!  Campus Closures!!

67% of Wisconsin residents are over the age of 24.  And as you can see on this 2019 graph, the "younger generations" are shrinking.  IOW, the cohort(s) UW needs to feed its enormous infrastructure are not there.

Perhaps Tommy forgot about that when he drew up his "to-do" list?

Tommy Thompson's list of things to do hangs on the wall of his office at UW-Madison.
