The Faculty Senate of the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee (UWM) strongly endorses the “Statement by PROFS in response to JFC action on the UW System Budget ” (see www.profs.wisc.edu ). By its actions, the Joint Finance Committee (JFC) sends a chilling message to residents of the state of Wisconsin that it is not important for our collective future to support a strong public University in Milwaukee. This view cannot be further from the truth. The actions of the JFC critically undercut the academic and fiscal viability of UWM and other campuses in the UW – System and, as a result, will compromise the future for Wisconsin residents in the rapidly evolving, knowledge – based world of the 21st century
