Distinguished Professor David Petering visited to express his concern about how the administration is handling the budget cuts issue. He feels the potential situation is more dire than is being communicated externally. When Robin Van Harpen and Johannes Britz arrived, we spoke about messaging, and the fine line between communicating the damage that these cuts will do to UWM in balance with the need to not turn off potential students and their families. We also discussed the VSIP (Voluntary Separation Incentive Program) at length, both in its content, its procedural genesis, and how it was communicated to constituents.
