Chancellor Mone Addresses Joint Finance Committee and public hearing

UWM chancellor Mark Mone and UW-Parkside chancellor Debbie Ford address members of the Joint Finance Committee at a public hearing on April 5 at State Fair Park.

When the Joint Finance Committee held a public hearing at State Fair Park on April 5, UWM Chancellor took the opportunity to advocate for UW-Milwaukee.

Chancellor Mone highlighted the critical need to restore the $50 million lapse in general purpose revenue (GPR) funding for the UW System. In expressing support of performance-based funding he requested that the criteria for awarding the funds be based on the progress each campus makes in their own improvement efforts versus having the 13 UW System campuses compete against one another, as the state budget currently proposes. He also voiced support for an employee compensation plan.
