Engaging in the Budget Process

Mone_podiumThe current budget process for the state of Wisconsin is underway. The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, other campuses and the entire University of Wisconsin System are facing serious budget cuts for the 2015-’17 biennium. The budget process unfolds over the next several months and will take time and input from many constituents before it is finalized.

I appreciate and value your desire to stay engaged with the process and up to date on the latest developments. We’ve created this web site with resources and links to the most recent information available, including where to find current information provided by the Office of the Governor, Wisconsin State Legislature and the University of Wisconsin System. You’ll also find links to budget-related documents, plans and communications shared by me and from our campus governance units.

Your passion and commitment to our students’ success and to our mission are what make the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee strong. We need to hear more about – and share broadly – your experiences and how UWM changes lives. Please help us tell our story by completing the brief form provided for this purpose.

I personally thank you for your energy and advocacy on behalf of our great university and for safeguarding the success of generations of students to come.
