On Campus: Tracking effects of UW budget cuts, work on tenure policies continues - NICO SAVIDGE,

Campuses across the University of Wisconsin System are slashing hundreds of jobs as they cope with a $250 million state budget cut, according to an organization that studies higher education. The Wisconsin Center for the Advancement of Postsecondary Education is tracking how the UW System’s colleges and universities have cut costs in response to the reduction in state funding. Though their methods have varied, each of the system’s 13 campuses, as well as UW Colleges and Extension, have eliminated positions. They have done so by letting vacant jobs stay unfilled, offering buyouts, layoffs or using a combination of those strategies.
