Badger Advocates Disappointed in Regents Approval of System Plan to Reduce UW- Madison Funds

[Madison…] The Board of Regents has approved a plan by UW System administrators which moved millions of dollars of funding from UW-Madison to other system schools. Badger Advocates’ Executive Director Matt Kussow issued the following statement:

“We’re disappointed UW-System administrators accelerated the trend of cutting public support for UW-Madison, today. Based on the comments at the meeting, we’re more concerned their long- term strategy is to push UW-Madison towards privatization to free-up public resources for other campuses.”
