Badger Advocates Calls Money-Shuffling Proposal Short-sighted
[Madison…] As news accounts from the State Capitol indicate the UW System will propose moving millions of dollars of funding from UW-Madison to other system schools, Badger Advocates’ Executive Director Matt Kussow issued the following statement.
“This is bad for UW-Madison and bad for Wisconsin. The Governor and legislature proposed additional funding for public universities yet System wants to impose another massive cut on UW-Madison. It is a short-sighted decision that punishes success and fosters an environment which pits member campuses against each other. UW-Madison alumni across the nation should be outraged at this development. I fear this is just the beginning of efforts to erode UW’s position as the System’s flagship university.”
