PLATTEVILLE, Wis. 7.16.13 – The University of Wisconsin-Platteville and its Distance Learning Center (UW-Platteville Online) have named a new advisor for its online master's degree in project management that prepares students to lead complex projects, cultivate relationships between project teams and customers and manage the “triple constraint” of time, money, and scope of a project.

Tania Pitzer will fill the part-time advising position recently created to accommodate an increase in enrollments in the project management program. Pitzer will also provide outreach services to students enrolled in UW-Platteville Online's master's program in criminal justice.

"Tania is a great addition to our advising team and the project management program," said Amy Griswold, outreach program manager who oversees advising services.

Before joining the Distance Learning Center, Pitzer, originally from Macomb, Ill., spent 10 years on the UW-Platteville campus in the Students with Disabilities Office assessing prospective students’ needs and providing training and general office support. She attended Western Illinois University for three years, before transferring to UW-Platteville where graduated with a bachelor’s degree in business administration in 1999.
