Our Views: Budget cuts at UW Colleges will harm mission - Gazette Extra Editorial

UW-Rock County will lose its full-time dean and six or seven other administrative positions by year's end. No one suggests that UW-Rock County in Janesville and the 12 other UW Colleges won't survive and keep offering quality education. The new state budget cuts support to the 13 colleges by $5 million, part of the $250 million UW System cut. No faculty at the two-year colleges will lose jobs, so most students won't see direct impacts. But it's na├»ve to suggest switching to regional administrators—cutting 83 full-time workers—won't hurt the colleges or that administrators are “dead weight.”
