UWM Researcher: Major Budget Cuts Will Set Up The University to Lose Quality - Mitch Teich, WUWM

At UW-Milwaukee, one leading researcher is considering how the cuts might affect the ability of he and his colleagues to continue their work. "UW-Milwaukee is one of the two research doctoral universities within the University of Wisconsin System," says David Petering, University Distinguished Professor in Chemistry and Biochemistry. "Its whole program really is predicated upon having a facility that is intimately and intensively engaged in research." "So, when one starts talking about $300 million in cuts for the system, that means $40 million in cuts for UWM, if it is done proportionately. That's a lot of money for UWM. UWM has a lean, lean budget already," he says.
