UW-Superior meeting focuses on proposed budget cuts - Maria Lockwood , Duluth News Tribune

Gov. Scott Walker’s proposed $300 million cut to the UW System budget over the next biennium is just that, a proposal. Even if it is approved, there has been no decision made on how such a cut would be split among the state’s campuses, according to UW System President Ray Cross. He told Wisconsin Public Radio reporter Danielle Kaeding earlier this month that they’re still weighing how cuts may come down. “We’re going to be doing that very quickly, trying to get some preliminary numbers to the campuses so they can begin planning and preparing,” Cross said. UWS is already working to cover a $4.5 million budget gap with cuts and increased revenue. Additional cuts at the state level could lead to fewer faces on campus. http://www.duluthnewstribune.com/news/superior/3679306-uw-superior-meeting-focuses-proposed-budget-cuts
