Wiley: UW budget cuts 'careless stupidity' Former chancellor writes about UW cuts - Channel 3000

I am frequently approached by people, whether friends and acquaintances, or total strangers, who want to ask about or complain about something involving the university. My usual response is: “I’m retired. That’s someone else’s problem now.” But that is a flippant response, and only partly true. Yes, I am retired. No, it’s not just someone else’s problem. Everything that affects the university affects us all, and should be of concern to every Wisconsin citizen. This state has invested a great deal in the university since its very founding, and has a lot at stake in preserving that investment.
