Welcome to UWM’s budget website. This is a challenging time for UWM, but we believe that by facing these challenges head-on, we’ll emerge stronger to fulfill our vital role in educating students, producing research excellence, and working with community and business partners to strengthen the Milwaukee area, Wisconsin and beyond.

We know our students, Panther Families, alumni, faculty, staff and community members have questions about how UWM is responding to recent state budget cuts. In the spirit of collaboration and transparency, we have created this website to provide you with the most recent and relevant information. We hope it’s a useful resource as we look toward the future.

An earlier archived version of this site, focused on deliberation on and passage of the 2015-17 biennial budget, is available for your reference.

Thank you for visiting our budget website. We’re grateful for your support, and want to hear your questions, concerns and suggestions.
