Placer County Executive Officer David Boesch with Supervisor Kirk Uhler and Supervisor Robert Weiygant traveled to Coventry, England, this week in hopes of enticing the prestigious University of Warwick to open a full-service campus on land designated for a regional university just west of Roseville.
Supervisor Uhler was impressed with the global mission of the university
Supervisor Uhler appreciated the International focus of the University.
The trip, funded by SACTO the Sacramento region’s business recruitment organization, is the latest step in a 12-year effort by Placer County developer Angelo K. Tsakopoulos, (Sak-opo-los) to recruit a university to locate on land he donated in southern Placer County.
Talks have been ongoing over the last two years with previous visits by Warwick officials to the area. Uhler says it is now Placer County’s turn to answer some questions.
The University of Warwick was founded in 1965 and has an enrollment of 23,400 full-time students, primarily at its campus on the outskirts of Coventry. It has consistently been ranked as one of England’s best institutions of higher learning.
