Chancellor Patterson optimistic about upcoming UWSP year, despite budget cuts - Larry Lee, WSAU

The University of Wisconsin Stevens Point is looking to a much different future, but the Chancellor is saying that isn't all bad. The UW System just took a 250-million dollar cut in state budget support, which was felt at every campus. Chancellor Bernie Patterson says they lost some good people to voluntary separation and to out-of-state campuses, but is confident the campus will continue to deliver quality education to it's 9,000 plus students. Patterson says their effort to identify program priorities a year ago paid off. "I've often said a crisis is a terrible thing to waste, and so this has necessitated, in some regards, seriously thinking about what we can stop doing so we can start doing new things that are a higher priority."
