Budget cuts planned at University of Wisconsin campuses - Associated Press

Chancellors at the University of Wisconsin's Eau Claire and Whitewater campuses are making cost-cutting plans to deal with a proposed $300 million reduction in state funding for the UW System, even though the Legislature has yet to consider the cuts included in Gov. Scott Walker's budget. UW-Eau Claire Chancellor James Schmidt said the university will offer voluntary separation incentives to about 325 eligible faculty and staff, the Eau Claire Leader-Telegram reported. "Fewer resources will mean we can support fewer faculty and staff. This will require us to strategically eliminate positions and reinvent how we serve our students more efficiently," Schmidt said in an email to faculty and staff.
