Yes. In his message to campus about intermittent furloughs, Chancellor Mark Mone announced that he will take a 10% pay cut in the 2020-21 academic year. Provost Johannes Britz will also take a 10% pay cut, while all vice chancellors will take a 6.16% pay cut.
This includes the nine scheduled intermittent furlough days that the chancellor and his cabinet must take along with other employees. The pay cuts mean the chancellor and provost will work 18 days without compensation in addition to furloughs, and the rest of the cabinet will work eight days without compensation in addition to furloughs.

Chancellor Mone also announced that he is donating $50,000 to launch a $1 million fundraising campaign for the new Chancellor’s Student Success Fund. This fund is dedicated to helping students through emergency assistance, scholarships and other financial resources. We invite those who are in a position to help to make a gift to help UWM’s students in crisis.
