Here is Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel writer David D. Haynes, summarizing in one sentence the challenges facing the University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee.  "UWM has a dual mission — doing top-flight research while also serving as an entry point to students who might not otherwise consider college — that is both extremely valuable and extremely challenging."  Indeed.  Battled those challenges with part of my brain for 35 years.  Battled as well the destructive impulses of the identity-politics crazies and diversity weenies with another part.  Perhaps if the powers that be at the regional comprehensive universities disavow the antics at the hothouses for the freakazoid spawn of the priviligentsia, they'll have a better case with the legislature.
