State Budget Leaves UW System Out in the Cold - Volume One

This much is certain: A proposed $300 million cut in state funding for the UW System will radically change how UW-Eau Claire, UW-Stout, and other state universities operate. It’s uncertain, however, how deep the cut will be on any given campus – or what shape the inevitable staff and program eliminations will take. The cutback, said to be the biggest in state history, was announced by Gov. Scott Walker in advance of his Feb. 3 budget address, in which he officially unveiled his entire spending plan for 2015-17. Even after the two-year, $68 billion budget was officially unveiled university officials were working to determine what the cuts would mean for individual campuses and the UW System as a whole. http://volumeone.org/articles/2015/02/03/8623_state_budget_leaves_uwec_out_in_the_cold
