UWSP prioritizes teachers in face of budget cuts - Sari Lesk, Stevens Point Journal Media

University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point leaders say they are trying to prioritize teachers and advisers while preparing for the proposed budget cuts to the University of Wisconsin system. The UWSP campus is facing a cut of $9.6 million to its budget, or 25 percent of its state funding, based on Gov. Scott Walker’s proposed budget. Although campus leaders do not yet know what the final budget will look like or how big the cut will be, they are discussing and preparing plans for how to deliver its services while slimming down its staff. Administrators hosted a forum Friday afternoon to address information circulating the campus about the possibility of the school eliminating the administrative structure of the College of Fine Arts and Communication and moving oversight of the programs to other campus colleges.
