UW-Madison plans 400 job cuts, program reductions in response to budget cuts - Alison Bauter, Milwaukee Business Journal

Wisconsin's flagship university will eliminate some 400 jobs, curtail support services and cut or combine certain programs in response to a multimillion-dollar budget cut proposed in Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's state budget. Leaders in the legislature have said the proposed $300 million cut to the UW System is too high, but it is unclear whether or how much legislators will alter the budget. University of Wisconsin-Madison chancellor Rebecca Blank's announcement Friday is the university's attempt to prepare for its upcoming fiscal year, which begins July 1.
