Wisconsin Governor Walker Proposal Splits University Administrators, Faculty - Allie Bidwell, US News

Faculty members from across the University of Wisconsin's campuses are clamoring to halt plans for the schools to sever ties with the state and become more autonomous, even as administrators are urging lawmakers and the system's governing board to move forward, saying the shift will help the 26-campus system operate more efficiently. The transition to a public authority model is part of a contentious plan in Republican Gov. Scott Walker's 2015-17 budget that also calls for a proposed $300 million cut to higher education over the next two years – a roughly 13 percent decrease in state funding.
