Five reasons UWSP is worried about money Sari Lesk, USA TODAY

State funding for the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point has dropped so much the school will cut 76 positions by the end of the next fiscal year and eliminate classes — and at the current rate, UWSP will get no state money at all in nine years, the chancellor says. Since early 2015, campus leaders, students and community members have expressed concerns about Gov. Scott Walker's cuts to the UW System budget as a whole, as well as cuts directed at UWSP. Protests erupted around the city, and the Stevens Point City Council voted last year to send a message to state legislators expressing discontent with the decision to cut millions in state support to higher education.
