Study: Budget Cuts Is A Top Factor In Declining Faculty Morale At UW-Madison - Ross Terrell, Wisconsin Public Radio

The survey, conducted by the Women in Science and Engineering Leadership Institute at UW-Madison, found about 91 percent of faculty said budget cuts had some impact on their enthusiasm. Jennifer Sheridan, executive director of the institute, said this was the first time the survey asked about the budget's impact on morale. New policy changes on how the campus deals with hostile work environments prompted the institute to ask faculty members about the work environment, she said. "That issue of decreased funding for the university and the pressures it's putting on faculty seems to be probably the top concern that came out in the survey," Sheridan said. http://www.wpr.org/study-budget-cuts-top-factor-declining-faculty-morale-uw-madison
