UW Parkside chancellor: System managing budget within state constraints - MARK SCHAAF, Journal Times

Following approval of the University of Wisconsin System budget, which raises several costs for students, the UW-Parkside chancellor says advocates must keep pushing for more state investment in UW schools. The $6.2 billion UW System budget approved Thursday increases student fees and students’ costs for housing and food. The budget comes as the Board of Regents grapples with how to raise money in the face of a tuition freeze and a $250 million cut in the 2015-17 state budget. “With a limited use of fund balances, the 2016-2017 annual budget allows each campus to manage inside the constraints of the current state biennial budget, which includes a historic reduction in financial support and a mandated tuition freeze,” UW-Parkside Chancellor Debbie Ford said in a statement.
