UW-Madison worklife survey finds budget cuts shook morale of 91% of faculty - PAT SCHNEIDER, The Capital Times

Morale among faculty at UW-Madison was shaken in 2015 over budget cuts, according to a survey by the Women in Science and Engineering Leadership Institute. Just over 91 percent of respondents said that budget cuts – as UW-Madison tightened its belt to reflect a $250 million cut in state funding to the UW-System in the 2015-2017 budget – decreased their enthusiasm for working at the school. Spending cuts had a significantly more negative impact on faculty’s enthusiasm for working at UW-Madison than did modifications to tenure in the UW System, another controversial change to working conditions.
