MADISON, Wis. -

University of Wisconsin System regents are set to meet with lawmakers this week to discuss rebuilding their relationships.

Republican lawmakers have heaped criticism on system leaders for building a $650 million reserve while raising tuition every year. The state budget Republican Gov. Scott Walker signed in June froze tuition levels and system President Kevin Reilly resigned last month. A search committee has started looking for a replacement.

The Board of Regents and other higher-education leaders plan to meet Thursday with a quartet of Republican legislators, including Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, Sens. Alberta Darling and Sheila Harsdorf and Rep. Pat Strachota. Rep. Jill Billings, a La Crosse Democrat, also will attend the meeting.
